BDO goes on the road for online campaign
BDO Stoy Hayward has joined forces with e-commerce giant Oracle to arrest a widespread failure among SMEs to grasp the internet revolution.
The national e-business awareness campaign is set to kick start UK SMEs to move business online.
Regional briefings will highlight the impact the internet has already had on business, and tackle finance and tax issues that affect both dot.coms and established businesses from start-up to sale.
Stoys research revealed in February that just one in four SMEs had traded online and a further third had no e-commerce plans at all.
The firm’s national e-business manager, Jonathon Corkery, said: ‘Most growing businesses could be more competitive if they applied e-business thinking to the way they work.’
