We’re pleased to announce that Capsule is an approved CRM vendor in the UK government’s Help to Grow: Digital Scheme. Launching today, the UK-wide scheme aims to help small and medium size businesses (SMEs) to grow by giving up to 50% discount on approved software products as well as free, impartial advice.
Duncan Stockdill, Founder & CEO at Capsule, said: “We’re pleased to make Capsule available through the Help to Grow: Digital scheme at launch. The past 18 months have significantly changed working practices. Businesses now have to be flexible across home and office while still having clear visibility into what’s happening on a day-to-day basis. The software that’s available through the Help to Grow: Digital Scheme, such as Capsule can help businesses achieve this, whilst also providing the tools to increase productivity and growth.”
By incentivising the adoption of digital technology, the government hopes to help businesses adopt digital technology that’s proven to increase productivity and profits, and help businesses become more resilient in the future.
The scheme will also offer SMEs advice on how technology can help their business. A new online hub will help businesses identify their technology needs, assess purchasing options and advise on how to implement new technology in their operations.
For eligible UK-based businesses who are interested in trying out Capsule, the Help to Grow: Digital scheme will give you a voucher to cover 50% of the costs.
Discounts on software will be available in voucher form and will be available for software that helps businesses build customer relationships and increase sales, make the most of selling online and manage their accounts and finances digitally. In short these categories are:
- Customer relationship management (CRM)
Businesses that will be eligible for the voucher must:
- have between 5 and 249 employees
- be registered at Companies House or be a registered society listed on the Financial Conduct Authority’s Mutuals Register
- have been trading for more than 12 months
- be purchasing the approved software for the first time
To register for the scheme you just need to head over to the Help to Grow: Digital portal. It might help if you have your Companies House registration number to hand as you’ll need this to register your interest.
