SMEs and entrepreneurs: boosting business using satellite applications

Competitive SMEs are permanently striving to cut costs, increase profit margins, streamline business operations to adapt quickly to changing market demands, as well as to government regulations that impact the way they do business.

This conference will introduce satellite applications that have helped SMEs with such challenges, in sectors such as insurance, retail, marketing, energy and others. Entrepreneurs will learn about mobile services for workforce and fleet management that help streamline internal workflows, improve relations with customers and suppliers, save time and money. Finally, SMEs will share their use of satcom solutions in cases in which data access and sharing, or realtime monitoring of equipment, are critical.

Register now to learn about:

  • How can satellite applications address SMEs’ business needs?
  • How have satellite applications been implemented and used successfully, in different sectors?
  • What are the support and funding opportunities available for user-SMEs in sectors other than space?
  • How to deal with obstacles associated to taking up innovative solutions?
