Fujitsu and SMEs
Small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) provide innovative and agile solutions that deliver great results for our customers and are a substantial and vital part of a healthy UK economy.
However, SMEs often face challenges which for a small organisation with potentially limited resources and reach can be difficult to overcome. Fujitsu believes that collaboration is the key to helping small businesses grow and to support this key principle, we commissioned independent research, resulting in our ‘Collaboration Nation’ report.
The potential barriers to great collaborative relationships and the recommended steps to overcome them identified in the report has driven our underlying strategy and the key principles of Fujitsu’s SME Engagement Programme. This initiative will allow Fujitsu to make close and direct contact with SMEs across the UK & Ireland, ensuring that these key relationships have the focus that they deserve.
