Nearly 12,000 small and medium-sized enterprises have participated in the Modern Enterprise Program (MVP) to develop their infocommunication technologies and integrate into the digital economy.
The aim of the digitization consulting program, implemented via a cooperation between the Hungarian government and the chamber of commerce network here, is to encourage small and medium-sized enterprises to leverage information and communication technologies (ICT) and shape the digital attitude of Hungarian business leaders and owners.
Supported by the Economic Development and Innovation Operational Program (EIDHR), the program has enabled chamber consultants to provide free IT consulting services in all counties since the beginning of 2016. So far, nearly 12,000 companies have participated, exceeding preliminary expectations.
The free services have strengthened the efficiency and income-generating capacity of enterprises through the effective application of infocommunication solutions.
Many small and medium-sized enterprises still aren’t involved in the digital economy; the same is true for micro-enterprises. The Modern Enterprise Program now aims to improve the Hungarian DESI index, an indicator measuring enterprises use of digital technologies.
