Is your business looking to develop your digital technologies to improve productivity and profitability? We have a team of creative, marketing and technical specialists with a strong track record of delivering projects in this area.

What we do

Our Digitalplus team provide impartial advice and support to SMEs in Lancashire, with a focus on emerging digital technologies. This project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and delivered by UCLan.

We provide business owners with an excellent awareness of digital technologies, giving you the confidence to:

How will it benefit your business?

We can help increase your understanding of:

  • How to use social media to promote your business to a wider audience
  • How emerging technologies such as Extended Reality (XR), Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) can benefit your business
  • How digital twin simulation of equipment and working environments can work for you

The assistance provided is delivered in the form of a bespoke report, presentation, one-to-one support or a combination of all three.
