A panel discussion based on recent findings on the state of technology in SMEs, including the tools they use to manage core business processes, as well as the challenged they face and their plans for the future.
Gridfox research shows that SMEs, many of whom have already had to rapidly adapt to change due to the recent impact of COVID-19 and Brexit, are feeling trapped managing data in tools like spreadsheets – with 98% of SMEs still using spreadsheets for mission critical operations.
However, with the pandemic only emphasising how dependent we are on digital services for business continuity, it is now that SMEs are looking to invest in technology to be able to increase efficiency and collaboration, build resilience and keep up with competition.
