SMEs in the South West are being asked how they used technology to help them during the pandemic to provide guidance and learning for the region’s business community.

Devon-based tech company Timewade have launched the ‘Technology for Success 2020’ study, to discover the best approaches and challenges across businesses in the region.

It’s part of the free ‘Technology for Success’ programme which, working alongside partners including Bishop Fleming and Stephens Scown, provides free guidance to businesses on best use of technology. It follows a similar study carried out at the end of 2019.

Julian Wills , Founder of Technology for Success and Managing Director of Timewade, said: “We already know that companies are focused more than ever on adopting the right technology to support their business.

“But the pandemic and lockdown has had an incredible impact. We want to find out what is working well, where problems have arisen and how businesses can be supported in the coming months, helping them identify the best technology solutions to help in their recovery and future growth.”

Businesses who take the ‘snapshot’ survey will be sent an insight report detailing the anonymised findings and key recommendations, to help them develop new approaches to their use of technology to support their teams, customer acquisition and growth.

The survey will run through June and July. Initial results will be revealed and discussed at the Tech For Success SME Live Summit on Thursday July 2, a free event that’s part of the ‘Technology For Success’ programme.

Experts from Timewade, Astley Media, Minerva Lifelong Learning, Insight 6, Commissioning HR, Stephens Scown LLP and Bishop Fleming will be on the panel, discussing the steps businesses need to take to aid their recovery post lockdown.
