The government, concerned about the lack of digitalization of Spanish SMEs

The lack of digitalization can stop the expansion and profitability of Spanish SMEs compared to international markets. Despite the progress made in recent years, the digital adaptation of large companies remains ahead of small and medium enterprises where digital conversion has been slower.

The lack of digitalization is a burden for Spanish SMEs

In fact, this lack of digitization of Spanish SMEs has been highlighted during an Executive Forum information breakfast, where the Secretary-General of Industry and SMEs, Raul Blanco, said that 90% of Spanish SMEs still lack a strategy digitalized, this despite the fact that most of them recognize that digitization is urgently needed.

Blanco explained that only 10% of Spanish SMEs have a defined digitization strategy at this time, according to data collected by the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Tourism, data that was collected both in a survey and in the self-diagnosis tests for SMEs promoted in the Industry 4.0 program. A reality that makes more than ever the appearance of all kinds of initiatives aimed at improving the formation of these companies, as in the case of

According to Blanco, the changes required by companies to achieve digital transformation are " 20% technology and 80% business model", and also requires creating a digital twin, a data ecosystem and focusing on cybersecurity.

And in order for SMEs to choose the best digitalization model according to their needs, it is recommended that before implementing a personalized plan they submit to the tests offered by the Ministry and request public aid, including state aid Industry 4.0 program itself.

The administrative tasks subtract time, money and effort to the SMEs in Spain

In the era of digitalization, we still have Spanish SMEs wondering if they really need applications or programs to improve their performance, then the question arises whether it will really help them achieve greater competitiveness or if it will adapt to their type of company.

One of the areas in which more time and effort are lost by Spanish SMEs are administrative tasks, even more than other European companies of the same size. That is why it is suggested to reduce administrative burdens through digitalization, which could significantly increase their productivity.

It is necessary to highlight that there is not a company too small that does not need to carry out its digital transformation. The technological era continues to provide great benefits for all Spanish SMEs.

But although there is still a long way to go, there are more and more SMEs that increase their technological investment, mainly those aimed at professional accounting for companies.

With this type of professional accounting programs for companies, you can achieve greater agility, since most functions are automated. These are very simple programs to install and use with which SMEs can start their accounting work immediately.

An example of these professional accounting programs for companies is Contasol, which has many shortcuts, seat templates and predefined concepts with which you can further streamline the creation of repetitive seats, and beyond, you can also meet the obligations fiscal, balance sheets, profit, and loss account and consult the previous exercises quickly.

We must not forget that companies that emerge from the competition greater benefits and much lower costs will be the ones that start their digital transformation as soon as possible.
