Following today’s (20 May 2020) announcement from An Post of its commitment of €2 million worth of practical supports for Ireland’s SMEs to get back to business, Chambers Ireland welcomes this new package of supports, which includes a dedicated eCommerce advice hub for SMEs, and complements the range of business supports already available from Government and the supports of local Chambers nationwide.
Speaking this afternoon, Chambers Ireland Chief Executive Ian Talbot said,
“An Post’s commitment of €2 million in practical supports for SMEs is timely and will be a lifeline to many businesses who are endeavouring to innovate and transform their operations in response to COVID-19.
The new dedicated eCommerce advice hub is a particularly useful support for businesses who want to transition and grow their online sales presence during this challenging time. The hub will also put businesses in touch with vital networks offering key advice including the Local Enterprise Offices.
These supports, which will be available in communities throughout the country, complement existing supports that Chambers throughout our Network offer to local businesses. We look forward to working and collaborating with An Post as we support businesses in response to COVID-19.
Digital transformation has been a necessity for businesses as they respond to the ongoing challenges that COVID-19 brings. Practical supports, like those launched by An Post today, will be critical in supporting business to make this transition.”
