Everything an SME needs to ‘go digital’
SMEs may need to prepare themselves for further lockdowns. Or they may just need to adapt because their customers’ behaviors have changed due to the pandemic.
The Office of National Statistics (ONS) notes that there’s a strong correlation between productivity and the use of digital technologies. This has only intensified with time. Companies that used digital tools had more sales per employee than those who didn’t.
