What is Digital Resilience Bonus? 

Announced by DPM Heng Swee Kiat in the recent Fortitude Budget early 2020, this bonus aims to provide additional support to local enterprises in the Retail and F&B sector and emphasised the importance of Digitalisation and how it is a key enabler for businesses to improve their competitiveness and productivity. 

 The Digital Resilience Bonus (DRB) aims to uplift the digital capabilities of businesses. Primarily targeted at the F&B and Retail sectors who are more affected by the recent COVID-19 Pandemic which demands more businesses to adopt digitalisation.

The DRB is given on top of the enhanced digitalisation assistance provided under the SMEs Go Digital programmeIf your business is in the Food Services or Retail sector, the following digital solutions will help you to adapt and thrive in this new normal:

E-Payment (PayNow Corporate)

Enables your business to carry out cashless and paperless transactions, thus reducing the need for physical interactions between buyers and suppliers and being paid faster.

Accounting and HR/payroll 

Supports your business to be more efficient, support remote working and business continuity.

Digital Ordering for F&B

Allows your customers to place their own orders and make payments digitally. Send orders to the kitchen immediately for food preparation, thus improving efficiency and accuracy.

Inventory Management

Allows for automatic synchronisation between your inventory movements and your orders, sales and deliveries, thus avoiding under or over-stocking and eradicating the need for manual stock-taking.
