Government scheme launches to help UK SMEs grow through technology


Capsule, the online CRM, has been listed as an approved software supplier on the Government’s new Help to Grow: Digital scheme.

The Help to Grow initiative, announced by Chancellor Rishi Sunak in his Budget 2021, is providing £520 million to help SMEs recover from the Covid-19 pandemic by adopting digital technologies and providing management training to boost productivity and innovation.

Within the initiative, the Help to Grow: Digital scheme will provide SMEs with discounted software and free, impartial online support on how the technology can boost their performance.

Capsule is one of just four approved customer relationship management (CRM) software suppliers accepted onto the scheme, with eligible businesses now able to apply for a discount of up to 50% on Capsule software, up to a maximum of £5,000.

Capsule is intuitive, powerful CRM software, that already helps more than 10,000 global businesses easily manage contacts, increase sales, and grow lasting relationships. Capsule integrates with Microsoft, Google, and leading accountancy and marketing software to support every business need.

Duncan Stockdill, Founder & CEO at Capsule, said: “We’re delighted to be named as an approved supplier on this essential new scheme, which will support SMEs to innovate and grow through the use of technology. This scheme is incredibly important, with SMEs having a critical role to play in driving the UK’s economic recovery.

“Many businesses had to diversify and adapt during the pandemic in order to survive. Help to Grow: Digital will help businesses build on their new ways of working so they can bounce back better.

“The support businesses receive through Help to Grow: Digital will also help them plan for the future, ensure they are being innovative in how they do business, and give them the best chance to compete and grow. By enabling better access to technology like Capsule, SMEs can build better relationships, increase sales, and accelerate success.”
