Distance Business (D-Biz) Programme: IT Service Providers Reference List
Dear Members,

Under the second round of the Anti-epidemic Fund, the Government has recently launched the “Distance Business (D-Biz) Programme” to support enterprises to continue their business and services through the adoption of information technology (IT) and related training.

The D-Biz Programme is a time-limited, fast-track programme to provide 100% funding support to qualified enterprises, subject to a cap of $100,000 per IT solution and $300,000 per enterprise.  The Programme covers 12 IT categories relating to distance business as follows:  
·       Online business;
·       Online order taking and delivery, and smart self-service systems;
·       Online customer services and engagement;
·       Digital customer experience enhancement;
·       Digital payment/mobile point of sale;
·       Online/cloud-based financial management systems;
·       Online/cloud-based human resources management systems;
·       Remote document management, cloud storage and remote access services;
·       Virtual meeting and conference tools;
·       Virtual team management and communications;
·       Cybersecurity solutions; and
·       Other online/custom-built/cloud-based business support systems.

To enable enterprises to identify relevant service providers more easily and to facilitate expedite processing of applications, an IT Service Providers Reference List will be provided for enterprises’ reference. To enrol for the Reference List, a service provider should possess a valid Business Registration Certificate and technical capability and experience relating to the IT solution categories above. The Reference List with the first batch of service providers will be available on 15 May 2020 on the Programme website (u.hkpc.org/dbiz) and will be updated regularly thereafter.

The Government will accept applications from IT service providers to enrol for the IT Service Providers Reference List from 4 May 2020. In this regard, we would like to collect information of interested  member companies, and refer the reference list to the Secretariat of D-Biz Programme.

If you are interested, please register on or before 8th May. (https://forms.gle/fVdUjR5nWitw3dwC9)

In view of the nature of the D-Biz Programme, you may wish to note that total solution or package approach with shortened implementation timeframe, say in a few weeks/months, is preferred for meeting the urgent needs of enterprises.

Thanks in advance for your support to the Programme.  For enquiry, please contact the Secretariat of the D-Biz Programme at 2788 5070 or dbiz@hkpc.org.
