Digital transformation has become a buzzword over the last few years, however, the outbreak of COVID-19 really drove home the importance of technology, especially within businesses!

Whether it is Microsoft Teams, an efficient CRM system or speech recognition software, technology has the power to improve your customer service, the running of the business and overall drive more revenue. However, not all business has the huge budgets that some corporate businesses have – And that’s ok!

For small to medium businesses, technology may not be at the top of the pecking order, but if that is the case for you and you live in the Leeds area, we’ve got some news for you!

The Digital Enterprise is providing some funding for businesses in Leeds through their Digital Growth Vouchers which will be put towards technology and digital resources – And yes, speech recognition and digital dictation are included in that!

  • A backlog of admin.
  • You need a quicker turnaround time for client and business correspondence.
  • Your team is spending a lot of their time typing.
  • You send lots of emails, create lengthy reports, and complete repetitive tasks.

What’s more, our training package and technical support service are also eligible for funding, meaning that you will be a speech recognition pro in no time!
