Many small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) have been criticised before for lacking the confidence to adopt technology in day-to-day tasks.
Although many reports have shown that software such as cloud computing has numerous benefits – including helping to cut overheads – few SMEs are making the most of the advantages technology can bring.
That’s why the city of Coventry has launched a state-of-the-art centre which allows SMEs to utilise its facilities rather than forking out cash for their own.
Named the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC), it is calling on SMEs to take advantage of the many services on offer in order to grow and in turn boost the economy of region.
MTC chief executive Clive Hickman explained to the Coventry Telegraph: “We can help SMEs test and develop their ideas, so they don’t have to make a capital investment in the early stages of a project and won’t have to buy the equipment to secure potentially lucrative contracts.”
The MTC is a great way to ease entrepreneurs into the world of business and every city should think about having one if they are serious about wider economic growth.
