SMEs in India contribute more than 45 per cent of the industrial output. It is these SMEs that innovate and help create value for our communities through job opportunities. With the launch of initiatives like Make in India, the Government of India has been active in bringing out solutions to help SMEs thrive. Additionally, the Government’s ambitious ‘Digital India’ project to offer a one-stop shop for Government services is further bolstering the sector by introducing internet and broadband to remote corners of the country and increasing trade.
“Most SMEs typically use outdated systems like spreadsheets or even pen and paper to manage their accounting and other business operations. Because most of the existing software providers cater to large enterprises, they are beyond the reach of SMEs in both affordability and adaptability.
