ScotlandIS launches digital hub to support businesses in response to coronavirus

An online hub has been launched to provide Scottish businesses with digital tools to help them through the new working conditions brought about by coronavirus.

The hub, created by tech industry membership body ScotlandIS, offers a range of digital resources to any Scottish business either free of charge or at discounted rates.

These include apps and platforms that can assist with everything from cashflow, stock management, communication, risk management, leadership support and communications to staff morale.

Jane Morrison-Ross, chief executive of ScotlandIS, said: “The response we have seen from the Scottish tech industry to support the wider economy has been phenomenal.

“This hub for Scottish business has come as a result of harnessing all of the good will and innovation that is out there from across the tech and digital sector to support all Scottish businesses through this unprecedented time.

“We are all learning to work in new, technology-enabled ways, and businesses need to very quickly make sure they have tools, information and means to collaborate.

“Because we can't have direct human contact, we need to make it digital, and our hope is that this online hub will help every business across Scotland do just that.

“We have included resources to help minimise isolation and maximise wellbeing too.”

The online hub can be accessed at scotlandis.com/business-hub.

Any digital technology business in Scotland looking to provide support through the online hub is encouraged to contact Heather Donnelly on heather.donnelly@scotlandis.com.
