Technology is how small businesses become medium and large businesses. Can you imagine the positive economic impact if every SME in SA recruits one or two extra staff members? The fundamentals of business do not change, but the importance of educating yourself as an SME and embracing technology to avoid stagnating is key. Do not try to be resilient to the point of fatigue. Grow beyond the numbers and statistics. We need to engage SMEs and remember that support is more than just buying local. Jaco Voigt chats to Viresh Harduth from Sage about the backbone of our economy – small and medium businesses. Maintain focus on your passion and allow solutions from companies like Sage to guide you with automation, bank recons, APIs, compliance, cashflow and business management. Brought to you by Catalytic.
