How can the scheme help your business?

Embracing software and digital ways of working can help boost your business performance. Software integration has helped SMEs to reach more customers, streamline time-consuming tasks and free up more time to focus on core business needs.

Many businesses feel that cost and knowledge are barriers to adopting new software and digital ways of working. This is how Help to Grow: Digital can help.

The scheme provides guidance to help you understand how software can benefit your business.

Explore our advice and learning section. It includes useful information about how to help identify your software needs, finding the best supplier, getting the best return on your investment and how to integrate software into your business.

When you’re ready, you can browse the software in the scheme, comparing the pros and cons of each package before choosing a software and applying for your discount.
