◆ Solving "two issues" of IT introduction at once by utilizing IT introduction subsidy

According to the White Paper on Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (30), most companies cite "costs cannot be borne" as an issue when trying to promote the introduction and use of IT, but IT introduction subsidies are such IT. It has the advantage of greatly reducing the burden of introducing tools.

In addition, according to the white paper, lack of IT literacy, such as "I do not understand the effect of introduction" and "Employees cannot master IT", seems to be a big issue.

"Cost" and "IT literacy" are the major barriers to promoting IT for SMEs.These two solutions are the major merits of utilizing the IT introduction subsidy.

│ Solving cost issues with assistance of 2/3 to 3/4 of IT introduction cost

First of all, regarding the cost issue, the IT introduction subsidy provides subsidies with a fairly large subsidy rate of 2/3 to 3/4 of the IT tool introduction cost.In addition, the target expenses include not only software installation expenses but also cloud service usage expenses, consulting and support services, and a wide range of subsidies are set.

It is expected that this will enable many companies that want to introduce IT tools, but cannot realize them due to cost issues, to promote IT introduction.

Another issue of IT introduction is "insufficient IT literacy" and "insufficient human resources".

・ Employees cannot utilize IT tools

・ There are no human resources who can act as the flag of introduction.

・ There is no suitable advisor

These issues of human resources shortage and literacy shortage can be improved by utilizing IT introduction subsidies.

IT introduction support businesses are registered, and only companies with a proven track record and expertise are recognized as support businesses.By partnering with an IT vendor who can trust their expertise in this way, we can solve problems such as lack of IT literacy and human resources.

│ Benefits for IT vendors (production companies, etc.)

・ By registering as an "IT introduction support company", you can improve the reliability of your company.

・ It will be easier to match with client companies that want to use IT introduction subsidies.

After the corona disaster, many companies regardless of industry, format, and business scale are required to promote IT more than ever. As an IT vendor, by utilizing the IT introduction subsidy, we can expect to increase our ability to adapt to the needs of these times and increase sales by cultivating new customers and expanding sales channels.
