Digital Adoption for Businesses
September 7, 2022

How Canadians do business has changed. To stay competitive and grow, small and medium-sized businesses need to adopt new digital tools.

In Budget 2021, the Government of Canada announced the $4 billion Canada Digital Adoption Program (CDAP) to help get your business online, give your e-commerce presence a boost or help digitalize your business's operations.
CDAP provides funding and support to businesses, as well as training and work opportunities for young Canadians.

The Canada Digital Adoption Program is here to help your business not fall behind, but instead to gain a technology advantage so that your business can grow. If you’ve had annual revenue (reported to the CRA) between 500k & 100M in either 2018, 2019, or 2020, then your company qualifies for up to a $15,000 grant (covering 90% of cost) to develop a digital adoption plan. You will also be able to then gain access to up to $100,000 in a 0% interest business loan to take on any larger-scale implementation of the plan that you may want to pursue.

StayShure is an ISED approved digital adoption plan partner. Not only do we help to develop a robust digital adoption plan for you, but we’ll also include 5 months of our CTO-for-hire Growth Plan to help implement it.

What would your digital adoption plan include for the Canada Digital Adoption Program?

  • A detailed technology audit assessing how technology is currently used, or not used, in all of your company’s standard operating procedures and processes.
  • A detailed assessment of your operations efficiency, communication structure, customer conversions, sales tech optimization, and digital leadership to help us to identify areas of improvement or opportunity.
  • A series of recommendations broken down into a 12-month goal roadmap for gradual and affordable implementation.
  • Ideas on how you can leverage technology to gain digital leadership or generate new streams of revenue for your company, and how to implement them.
  • Recommended contractors to help make the above plan a reality.

Here are a few examples of what we’ve been able to help companies accomplish with their digital adoption:

  • The creation and implementation of knowledgebases so that knowledge and processes are tracked and easily passed on to save on HR costs.
  • The transition of dated Microsoft Access databases to cloud-based and modern web applications that are faster and easier to use for teams while costing 90% less to maintain.
  • Helping companies go from 30+ pieces of fragmented software to 10 connected pieces of software.
  • Creating custom integration tools that save $100,000+ annually in manual data entry costs.
  • Helping to streamline, automate, and make remotely accessible the functions of the CEO so they can step out and sell their business.
