Opportunity for Web Developers – New e-commerce scheme

GRTU has been informed that a new scheme that will part finance the setting up of a e-commerce websites by companies will be launched shortly.

A significant pot of money will be available that will open up a healthy amount of opportunities both for those seeking to set up their website or include an e-commerce facility in their existing one, as well as those that provide the web development service.
Selling online is a phenomenon that has changed the world of commerce and sales. This has come to great benefit to those enterprises that have sought to explore the opportunities of foreign markets. Foreign companies have succeeded tremendously in this area, with some basing their entire business plan on their online presence.
Unfortunately, due to a number of reasons, Maltese enterprises are still lagging behind significantly and a grant will certainly help them in finding the necessary willingness to move forward in setting up an online presence and ultimately selling online.
GRTU has already submitted its feedback on how we believe the scheme could improve and a consultation meeting was held for web developers in order to discuss the access criteria to be enlisted in the scheme that will enable them to provide the service.
The only way enterprises can benefit from the scheme is if they use a service provider that is listed and to be listed service providers need to apply and comply with a set of criteria.
The suggestions put forward by web developers were multiple and GRTU is currently in discussions with the Government to ameliorate the conditions in order to increase access to the largest number of service providers possible.
Thee-commerce scheme will be launched shortly and GRTU will be hosting information sessions for enterprises interested in the scheme and a separate one for service providers in order to help them enlist in the scheme.
