MSME Digital Transformation Drive



10.00 am – 5.00 pm

An initiative of the Government of India, under the Micro, Small & Medium Enterprise Ministry, the MSME Digital Transformation Drive will be conducted to create awareness about the benefits of technology adoption and conduct sessions on how MSMEs can deploy the latest tech tools and be more productive. MSME Digital Transformation Drive, Bengaluru is organized by MSME DFO, Bengaluru, and co-organised by Small Enterprise India.

DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION – it’s more than a buzzword for MSMEs. Digitization is no longer an option, it’s a necessity.  It helps business owners to start thinking out of the box by challenging the status quo and experimenting. Join us and meet technology domain Experts, Senior Officials from MSME Development Facilitation Office, and over 100+ MSMEs, in Mysore, looking to digitise their business.

Despite potentially tremendous benefits, Micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) lag in digital transformation. Emerging technologies, as diverse as they are, offer a range of applications for them to improve performance and overcome the size-related limitations they face in doing business. However, MSMEs must be better prepared, and the stakes are high.

With digital transformation, companies can improve their management by having better access to information, appropriate communication with vendors, and faster networking. With digitalization comes automation that can be combined with several operations to do menial and repetitive tasks, saving time and costs for organizations. Similarly, procuring financial support and human resources can be more streamlined and expedited on the back of a digital presence. With the digital approach at the forefront, training the workforce can become seamless and more effective. Moreover, MSMEs can track and log their employees’ progress while preparing in advance to tackle future challenges on the back of valuable insights.
