Webinar: How Going Digital Is The New Normal For Local Retail And F&B Firms

July 7, 2020

MORE F&B PROVIDERS & RETAILERS ARE TAKING THE DIGITAL PLUNGE

As the pandemic continues to spiral out of control, the global economy is heading into what looks to be a recession and more painstakingly built businesses, particularly retail and F&B firms, will be forced to close down permanently in time to come. Business owners have to brace themselves in the coming months or even years by making a radical shift from digital complacency to the judicious use of digital technologies.

BENEFIT FROM THE DIGITAL RESILIENCE BONUS & PRODUCTIVITY SOLUTIONS GRANT

Announced as part of the fortitude budget by our Deputy Prime Minister Heng, the Digital Resilience Bonus (DRB) can give SMEs a head-start in going digital. Here’s how SMEs in the F&B and retail sectors can qualify for the payout of S$10,000. In addition to the DRB, the Productivity Solutions Grant (PSG) is another scheme that offers up to 80% of funding support to encourage SMEs to kick-start their digitalisation efforts from 1 April 2020 to 31 December 2020.

WHY CHOOSE FIRSTCOM AS YOUR DIGITAL SOLUTIONS PROVIDER

Lauded as the leading provider of digital solutions and pre-approved Productivity Solutions Grant (PSG) vendor for three (3) years in a row, FirstCom has assisted over 900 SMEs, with little to no experience in digital marketing, in going all-out digital. From building a fully functioning e-commerce website to launching a suite of digital tools, FirstCom has a proven track record of helping SMEs ramp up the capacity for process automation and run their stores with minimal fuss.

Through the informative webinar, organised by StarHub and the Singapore Chamber of Commerce & Industry on 7 July 2020, our Director – Mr Jim Giam shared the success stories of his clients in hopes of inspiring more SMEs to go digital. Before embarking on their digital transformation journey, many of them had zero digitalisation assets and lacked digital expertise. After assessing their business model, our team of local specialists helped them break down the critical barriers to digital transformation, establish a new brand value, and adopt a new online storefront with the aim of driving sustainable business growth. One such client who has greatly benefited from our digital solutions is none other than Tankfully Fresh.
