Queensland small businesses can now check their digital readiness with an online Digital Scorecard.
The Digital Scorecard is designed to help businesses identify ways to improve their digital capability and be more competitive in a global digital economy.
Small to medium enterprises and not-for-profits can use the scorecard to find out just how digitally aware and capable they are compared with others in the industry.
The Digital Scorecard was developed by the Department of Science, Information Technology and Innovation in collaboration with Regional Development Australia (RDA) Sunshine Coast.
RDA Sunshine Coast Chief Executive Officer Darrell Edwards describes the scorecard as a “great enabler for regional business” in Queensland.
“It will help owners take stock of their technology adoption and application, and help them improve their productivity and profitability through technology,” he said.
“The Digital Scorecard is an end to end service, helping regional businesses move into the digital age with confidence. I’m excited about the opportunities this will open up for regional businesses to transform and evolve, and become nationally and globally competitive.”
Businesses who complete a digital assessment will be invited to targeted workshops, to be held in coming months, to improve their digital readiness in areas including website development, social media, and the use of mobile and other new technologies.
Businesses can access the Digital Scorecard on the Business Queensland website at www.business.qld.gov.au/digitalscorecard
