Digitalisierung mit staatlicher Förderung

Digitization with the help of state funding

The state and the federal states have decided to promote digitization for small and medium-sized enterprises. There are different funding options depending on the federal state. In terms of the amount of funding, a distinction is usually made between small companies (fewer than 50 employees and a maximum annual turnover of €10 million) and medium-sized companies (fewer than 250 employees and a maximum annual turnover of €50 million).

Field service software to digitalize your service processes is eligible for funding in all cases. Take advantage of the funding opportunities and at the same time benefit from increased efficiency in service and paperless deployment documentation.

Below you will find a detailed overview of the type and scope of funding in Germany.
