While the last few years have certainly challenged organisations in the technology sector, there is a growing sense that this is beginning to ease. The Government continues to talk about the importance of the technology sector and how innovation is a key factor to stimulate growth, with a number of measures such as Patent Box and the establishment of enterprise zones already implemented.
But are they the right measures and are they having a positive effect? The banks and various other lenders state that they are open for business and that access to funding is becoming easier – but is this in fact the case? Is there a disparity across the sector or, indeed, the country?
Now is the time to voice your view, and PEM is providing a confidential platform on which to share important insights. Take part in this year’s Kreston International UK Technology survey and help achieve a comprehensive overview of the key issues currently affecting the sector on a national basis.
Says Laragh Jeanroy, Partner at PEM: “This survey is a highly influential barometer for the industry, not least because it is driven by those most experienced in the field, but it also helps to inform and guide future decision making for technology businesses throughout the UK.
“We operate within a hub of technology excellence, with an innate knowledge of what drives technology companies and an understanding that shared knowledge can enable future success”.
Currently in its fourth year, this high-profile survey is once again being distributed by each of the UK member firms of Kreston International - including PEM - to technology firms and others involved in the technology sector.
PEM will be issuing a summary of the report and its findings to the relevant government departments and policy makers, together with participants of the survey.
