Invest Northern Ireland launches its latest round of its COVID-19 Digital Selling Capability Grant (DSCG).

NOTE: The deadline for applications is Friday 9th July at 5 pm

The Northern Ireland Executive has announced, in conjunction with Invest Northern Ireland, a second round of applications for the Covid-19 Digital Selling Capability Grant (DSCG).  The scheme will help small to medium-sized retailers and wholesalers maximise and capitalise on the burgeoning opportunity of eCommerce and online transactions during the current coronavirus crisis.

Businesses will be able to access up to £20,000 in grant support to cover the cost of activities from developing an eCommerce strategy to improving integration and automation with existing eCommerce systems; the scheme offers a great opportunity to expand your current business offering.

Monsoon Consulting has been taking proactive steps and initiatives to help our clients respond throughout the Covid-19 crisis so that their businesses can re-distribute their efforts and operations to service customers and companies online where possible.

Moreover, we have been active in working with companies, supplying advice and consultancy to help guide and prepare businesses who are moving into the world of eCommerce as they pivot their operations to respond to new business models. 

We have successfully consulted and supported multiple clients and businesses to receive grants, helping them to stabilise their eCommerce platforms, as well as redesign and modernise their site. As part of these we have worked to update the coding bases so that their platforms can better handle peak trading time loads, apply any missing security patches to help keep users safe, as well as provide a new hosting architecture to support future expansion. 

Whether your business is looking to make the strategic shift to enter the world of online commerce for the first time, or indeed to optimise an existing online presence, Monsoon Consulting is delighted to offer its support of the Digital Selling Capability Grant (DSCG) and to assist your company where we can.

All information on the scheme, including eligibility & the application process, can be found here.
