The opportunities are in assessment and training. It will
help businesses interested in digital transformation and working to initiate or
intensify the use of new technology in their company. Selected companies
will be offered a diagnostic of how they are currently operating their
technology and suggested innovations, designed to fit each model. Each
business in the programme will be assisted and followed throughout the process
to optimise the digital transformation.
The programme will also help those companies that already have
been part of the digital age to optimise their services, push their electronic
commercial side and maybe work on an international digital profile. This
section will be designed for companies interested in e-commerce, working on
developing the commercial channels, digital marketing techniques and training
with personnel from the selected firms.
Interested businesses have until March 15th to apply
online, and successful candidates will undergo individual assessment to see
where best improvements and changes may be suggested in each specific case.
