The incentive of the digitalisation voucher is to help businesses prepare a plan for the adoption of digital tools and techniques.
The 100% funded grant, up to a value of €9000, will help Irish companies recover and adapt to the new way of operating. Digitalised firms are known to perform better with higher labour productivity, faster growth and more advanced management practices.
Grofuse Digital Director, Denis Finnegan, said: “As a certified digitalisation advisor with Enterprise Ireland, Grofuse is delighted to be one of the expert digital service providers delivering for Irish companies as part of this initiative.
“The voucher can be used to access both technical or advisory services to examine the current processes and systems in place and determine the best course of action for respective businesses.”
“Process optimisation, digital customer experience and data management will be essential to remain competitive following the online surge spurred by Covid-19. One of our existing clients, Southeast Wetsuits, increased online transactions by 840%, boosting average order value by 5.51% and increasing total online revenue by 890% as a result of implementing Grofuse’s bespoke digital strategy.
