We will work with NZRS on understanding and driving SME uptake, enhancing the current Digital Journey tool, and look to coordinate this with initiatives by relevant government agencies.
The Digital Journey is a fantastic tool designed to help New Zealand businesses better utilise the Internet to improve their productivity and profitability. Research suggests that this is indeed one particular area where New Zealand is unfortunately a laggard – while we are 7th for use of the Internet; we are 17th for deriving economic return from it.
InternetNZ intends to work with our subsidiary, NZRS, and with the Digital Office in Dundin in delivering a further phase of enhancing the Digital Journey tool as a method of tangibly contributing to this potential of an internet-enabled, transformation of New Zealand business.
