As we approach the post-pandemic world, businesses have to grow and adopt new technologies in order to stay competitive. As such, digitalisation is crucial for most SMEs, F&B businesses included. Despite that, not all businesses have the ability to digitalise due to a lack of manpower and resources. This is where government grants and support schemes play a large part in aiding SMEs to transform their business.
If you’ve been facing business struggles such as a lack of manpower, inefficient manual processes, managing too many delivery platforms with high platform fees and low customer retention, we’ve found a solution for you.
Thus, introducing the new IMDA F&B Digital Solutions Grant! So if you are looking to upgrade or purchase a new POS system for your F&B business, you just may be eligible for the best grant available yet for F&B.
What is it?
In the Budget 2022, IMDA announced a new government grant. This grant allows SMEs to purchase solutions to deepen their digital capabilities and prepare them for a digital future.
In specific, this grant allows EPOS, specially approved by IMDA, to help F&B businesses digitalise, providing you with the best grant to get a unique EPOS All-in-One Integrated Digital Solution for F&B.
What does it offer?
The EPOS x IMDA grant offers eligible businesses up to 80% subsidy off our Digital Solution. And the best part? It only requires 20% payment upfront!
Why is the EPOS x IMDA Grant the best for your F&B Business?
