Digitisation

Overall, businesses are feeling relatively confident in their transition to the digital economy. Businesses are excited by the opportunities the digital economy brings but many businesses are unsure where they are positioned as this transformation takes place. While businesses are willing and possibly even eager to adapt to the changing technological landscape, businesses will need support in building internal capacity to train, upskill and improve the digital literacy of their businesses, which includes their workforce. 


Recommendations  

  • Open a new round of applications for the Small Business Digital Grants.

  • Expanding the Mentoring for Growth program to include mentorship in digitisation strategies as a core component of business strategies.

  • Develop or support existing initiatives that promote the digitisation of document management systems to move away from traditional paper storage
