Help to Grow: Digital

The Government have announced a Help To Grow : Digital, a scheme for eligible businesses in the UK to identify, adopt & fund business software.  A new online platform has been set up to advise on how technology can be leveraged to accelerate productivity, efficiencies & business growth.

Technology used effectively in a business can drive significant increase in capability and capacity, allow swift expansion, increase customer engagement & satisfaction, benefit staff engagement & communication and help drive the business forward.

The better modern software platforms tend to be straight forward to integrate, allow a business to automate some or all of their workflow, connect & integrate data from multiple sources (accounting, marketing or industry software & apps for example) and can give managers & business owners great insights from management information.

Businesses fitting the government’s criteria will also be able to apply for a voucher entitling them to a 50% government funded subsidy towards approved software, up to a maximum contribution of £5000.

The tech fund will be available on software that help businesses build client relationships and boost sales, take full advantage of ecommerce and manage business accounts & finance digitally.

How does a business apply?

Firstly check your company’s eligibility to apply for the tech fund voucher:

  • Currently aimed at limited companies, so ensure you have your Companies House number.
  • Between 5 and 249 employees
  • Trading more than 12 months
  • Not bought the discounted tech or software previously.
