Our research shows that SMEs and non-digitalised companies can benefit from beginning their digitalisation with implementing basic technologies. Starting small can lead to 'quick wins', which help to obtain the skills and motivation needed for more complex digital initiatives in the future.
People usually associate the concept of a digitalisation 'best practice' with state-of-the-art solutions and tech giants, like Amazon and Apple. However, this definition fails to acknowledge that not every company will benefit from attempting to implement advanced digital solutions straight away. For some companies such technologies may be too complex and resource-intensive to adopt immediately.
The vast majority of the businesses in Europe are SMEs. Data suggest that when it comes to digitalisation, many of them are only at the beginning of the journey. As a part of the Smart Industrial Remoting study, carried out by PPMI for the European Commission, we are striving to bring to light digitalisation practices that would be relevant for SMEs.
