UK software company to support adoption of its Cloud services to get UK business ‘back on track’

Advanced has launched a £1m fund to help organisations access the Cloud solutions that will support their business recovery and ensure they are fit for the future. The UK software and services company is also urging other technology organisations to offer similar support to organisations suffering in the current economic climate.

Between now and the end of November 2020 Advanced will use the fund to assist companies choosing to adopt Business Cloud Essentials, Advanced Financials or Cloud HR enabling them to access mission-critical data from anywhere to make more informed business decisions.

Gordon Wilson, CEO, Advanced comments: “We know how tough the last six months of trading has been, with many businesses hit hard and struggling to recover. We want to mobilise businesses with a tangible technology offer that will help them to quickly become more agile and efficient while enabling them to accelerate business recovery.”

“We know from our recent Digital Business Report that cashflow is one of the biggest challenges facing businesses over the next 12 months. This is why are urging the technology industry to step up and support UK businesses struggling to access the Cloud technology tools that are proven to help businesses get back on track.”

Findings from the report also show that, with almost two-thirds of business decision makers (60%) agreeing the workforce of the future will involve remote working and 46% believing the current crisis will eventually change working practices for the better, the role for Cloud-based systems has never been more critical.

Vinous Ali, Associate Director of Policy at techUK, adds: “Over the last few months, we have seen digital transformations that would have taken years, or not happened at all, become a reality in a matter of weeks. Technology is at the heart of helping UK businesses adapt and respond to the economic conditions as a result of the pandemic.”
