Constantly advancing technology and the resulting digitalization ensure global networking. Companies in particular benefit from this advantage, as it allows them to get the most out of every process. This guide describes why companies should invest in the future and what the benefits of digitization are.

 

The battle against paper chaos

 

For many companies, the path to digitization represents an insurmountable hurdle. Yet the first steps can be taken quickly. The benefits can be found throughout the entire corporate structure. Digitization declares war on paper chaos.

 

Administration in particular benefits from the changeover. In this area, there is not only a high workload. The space required for archiving the mountains of paper represents an immense cost factor. Companies can counteract this by recognizing the signs of the times and jumping on the bandwagon of digitization.

 

Transparency ensures process acceleration

 

With the help of digitization, it is possible to increase efficiency. Data and its exchange can take place in real time. Documents are now only available in digital form. This makes every step traceable and ensures transparency. At the same time, digitization is a building block for remaining competitive.

 

Far too many companies shy away from the path to automation and are too timid in converting their business to digitized processes. After all, restructuring is a not insignificant cost factor. The solution can be a grant, which comes in the form of the Digital Prämie Berlin.

 

But what exactly does the grant entail? The Digital Prämie Berlin is awarded to companies based or located in the capital city with a need for digitization measures.

 

The funding is not limited to certain industries, but is open to all companies. The funding amount is impressive, as up to 17,000 euros await each applicant. Funding from the Digital Prämie Berlin can be applied for, among other things, for the following optimization processes:
