SMEs are known as upon to play a aggressive place inside the monetary system of Mauritius. Adoption of ICT by SMEs can a have optimistic have an effect on on the nationwide monetary system. The reasons are: (a) Net based totally infrastructures are comparatively low price; (b) they provide an ever converging and rich ambiance for environment friendly enterprise networking; and (c) they provide SMEs entry to an even bigger market.
This job examines the extent internet provides alternate options for enterprise progress of SMEs in Mauritius. It moreover identifies the enablers and limitations to utilizing internet by SMEs.
A questionnaire was used to collect data amongst some SMEs. They’ve been categorised as follows: IT Novice, IT Savvy and e-Commerce Specialist.
The findings are reported, based totally on the analysis of the data collected.
Various key findings emerge from the evaluation on this job:
- IT Savvy and e-Commerce Specialist use laptop techniques, they’ve internet connection that they fully use for e-mail and they also have a web page too.

For SMEs to profit from the alternate options equipped by the online for enterprise progress, they need to buy info and skills in using the online and be made acutely aware of the facilities being offered by the NCB and the prevailing authorized tips inside the self-discipline of e-commerce.
They may even should monetary establishment on the vulgarization of utilizing internet amongst prospects or at least, within the interim, design/customise merchandise which may help objective a positive market part.
Net has revolutionized and continues to deeply have an effect on on the best way wherein one does enterprise. It is now a severe instrument for conducting enterprise. It permits patrons and sellers to satisfy on-line, speak and alternate information on objects and suppliers. Aside from, it does away with the geographical boundaries, the time zones and, in some situations, the need for bodily space to transact enterprise. With its nice potential, it has flip into commonplace for firms and clients to transact enterprise by means of the Net by way of e-mail or on-line shopping for. For the SMEs, it provides a vista of alternate options for enterprise progress.
However, many SMEs do not profit from the Net pondering that their objects and suppliers do not lend themselves to Net transactions. Moreover, they do not possess the managerial info and skills for e-business. Hiring an IT-expert or an e-business advertising and marketing guide to fill this gap requires comparatively giant sum of money, which they can not afford. Usually, the availability of broadband connections may impact the picks of SMEs to undertake e-commerce.
Extra, sound authorities insurance coverage insurance policies should be in place to create the necessary ambiance and incentives to encourage SMEs to profit from the Net to create enterprise alternate options.
Many unscrupulous people have an curiosity inside the giant potential of the Net for his or her very personal selfish motives. In nations the place there aren’t any relevant approved units, there may be various attainable assaults that compromise the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information that they alternate by way of the Net. Consequently, people may lose perception on the protection of doing enterprise inside the Net and thus forego it giant potential for enterprise.
SMEs in MAURITIUS
In line with the minister of Finance and Monetary Progress, Dr. R. Okay. Sithanen: “A key half inside the authorities’s agenda for monetary progress and democratization is the occasion of the small and medium enterprise sector proper right into a aggressive strain” (April 2006).
Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are broadly acknowledged as an very important sector for nationwide and worldwide monetary progress. Progress oriented small enterprise make a severe contribution to monetary progress and employment expertise inside native communities and nationwide economies. (Smallbone and Wyer, 2000) SMEs contribute significantly to nationwide economies (Poon and Swatman, 1999) and are estimated to account for 80 per cent of world monetary progress (Jutla et al, 2002).
It is no secret that globalization (r)evolution and communication utilized sciences (ICT) are going to differ the development of the any monetary system. (Kaushalesh Lal and Aveeraj Sharma Peedoly, 2006). With the federal authorities of Mauritius promoting small and medium enterprises as a aggressive sector of the monetary system, organizational and technological modifications in these firms are anticipated to have very important have an effect on on the nationwide monetary system. Proponents of globalization argue that it should open a window of alternate options for SMEs whereas networking capabilities of ICTs counsel that SMEs can enhance their competitiveness in world markets. In fact various analysis (Lal, 2004 and Drew, 2003) found optimistic have an effect on of the adoption of ICTs by SMEs.
Although there could also be little or no data pertaining to the evolution of SMEs all through time, the origins of SMEs in Mauritius might be traced once more to the 1960s when Mauritius was witnessing the beginning of a timid industrialization course of with an import-substitution approach with the first objective of supplying the native market and giving positive autonomy to the nation. The inward-looking industrial protection of the Authorities of the day was of encouraging the manufacturing of such commodities as a result of the manufacturing of blades, electrical bulbs, batteries, cleansing cleaning soap, welding and metallic work for constructing, refining edible oils, plastic commerce, meals canning, industrial poultry breeding, yogurt manufacturing, biscuits, footwear, matches and so forth for the house market; this was moreover the prevailing orthodoxy of the time significantly for African creating economies. Many critics (see e.g Maujean, 1996) argue that this programme was superficially deliberate with no help schemes nor incentives proposed to the enterprises. Although, the import substitution approach was rapidly overshadowed by an export-oriented approach with the establishing of Export-Processing Zones, many small-scale enterprises exploited the merchandise talked about above for the house market. In fact, most SMEs instantly cater for the native market in comparable areas as talked about above.
In line with Maujean (1996) the early enterprises have been makes an try and breed domestically fashions which existed abroad. In meals processing, firms like Purlait Ltd, La Boulangerie Industrielle and Lyons Maid which pioneered private, small-scale enterprises inside the nation started off with monumental difficulties regardless of being comparatively modern with an very important capital funding and sophisticated distribution group. The precedence with survival in a largely typical and poorly developed society meant that the native market was not however ready for such merchandise. Nevertheless in direction of this background a protectionist approach which involved extreme tariff in direction of aggressive objects helped these industries to operate.
As Wignaraja and O’neil (1999) argue, for the dimensions of the nation and its stage of progress, Mauritius has a really large number of help suppliers for the SME sector. Beyene (2002) makes a largely comparable argument significantly when looking at it by African necessities. This big selection of help is equipped primarily by way of Authorities and parastatal companies or financial institutions. The Small Enterprises and handicraft Progress Authority (SEHDA), Enterprise Mauritius (EM), the Progress Monetary establishment of Mauritius Ltd (DBM), the Small & Medium Enterprises Partnership Fund (SMEPF), the Nationwide Laptop computer Board (NCB) are normally considered the first institutions which provide help to SMEs by working schemes to bolster the establishing or progress of enterprises. They act primarily as facilitators, providing financial help, teaching and consultancy suppliers, promoting and export assist.
The Small Enterprises and Handicraft Progress Authority (SEHDA)
The Small Enterprises & Handicraft Progress Authority (SEHDA) was created following the merger of the Small & Medium industries Progress Organisation (SMIDO) and the Nationwide Handicraft Promotion Firm (NHPA). The intention of the merger is to rationalize and optimize utilizing belongings dedicated to the small enterprise sector in Mauritius. SEHDA, falling under the aegis of the Ministry of Enterprise, SMEs, Commerce & Co-operatives, provides help to potential and present small entrepreneurs with a view to permit them to start new enterprises or to boost their present firms.
Enterprise Mauritius (EM)
Enterprise Mauritius operates under the aegis of the Ministry of Enterprise, SMEs, Commerce & Co-operatives and we have one predominant objective, driving progress in exports every regionally and internationally by way of export sectors at three ranges:
- Aiding inside the progress of Enterprise Sector strategies and Movement plans
- The facilitation of Strategic Clusters to satisfy typically shared group targets
- And at last, working with specific individual firms to help them develop an built-in market and performance progress plan to produce entry to belongings that meet their specific requirements
Progress Monetary establishment of Mauritius
An very important part of the Monetary establishment’s belongings is geared in path of the occasion, consolidation and modernization of the SME sector. A separate division on the DBM is definitely dedicated to promote entrepreneurship progress. Loans are equipped at aggressive expenses for start-ups, financing of producing gear, know-how enchancment and as well as for working capital with the utmost quantum allotted numerous in accordance with industrial sectors. With respect to exports, the DBM runs the Export Progress Fund for participation in overseas commerce festivals and market surveys and as well as provides loans for joint ventures with overseas companions. Together with the DBM, completely different industrial banks such as a result of the Mauritius Put up and Cooperative Monetary establishment (MPCB), the MCB and the STB provide credit score rating facilities albeit at a lot much less aggressive expenses and relatively further very important collaterals to small entrepreneurs. Not too way back most of the foremost banks inside the nation (MCCB, MCB, Barclays and the State Monetary establishment) have moreover launched preferential charges of curiosity for SMEs.
Small and Medium Enterprises Partnership Fund (SMEPF)
A parastatal physique set as a lot as current funding ranging from Rs. 300,000 to Rs. three million amounting as a lot as 50% of the entire capitalization of the enterprise. The criterion used is the evaluation of the advertising and marketing technique of the proposed enterprise to guage its feasibility to allow the return of the allotted funds inside a interval of 5 years. SMEPF is steadily gaining further significance as a provide of funding to SMEs.
Nationwide Laptop computer Board (NCB)
The NCB was prepare as a result of the apex organisation to develop and promote ICT and ICT-related suppliers in Mauritius. Its foremost contribution in path of SME progress has been by means of its incubator centre primarily for ICT start-ups with the first targets of promoting entrepreneurship inside the ICT sector by providing the necessary infrastructure and logistics, the occasion of linkages with completely different institutions and promoting. Moreover it runs sensitization programmes repeatedly for SMEs with a goal to familiarize and have an effect on them to the strategic and financial benefits of integrating ICTs inside the working of their enterprises.
Data and Communication Know-how Authority (ICTA)
The ICTA is a regulatory physique prepare in 2001 altering the earlier Mauritius Telecommunications Authority. The first targets of ICTA are listed underneath:
- To democratize entry to information, making an allowance for prime quality, selection and plurality
- To license and regulate the info and communication suppliers
- To encourage optimum use of ICT in enterprise, commerce and authorities at huge, the introduction of newest know-how and the funding in infrastructure and suppliers
Completely different SME Supporting Institutions
Together with the above institutions there are others, which primarily private sector our our bodies such as a result of the Mauritius Employers Federation (MEF), and Mauritius Chamber of Commerce and Enterprise (MCCI) do current miscellaneous facilities for SMEs further significantly by means of documentation, teaching, suggestion and consultancy.
Whatever the variety of measures described above, it is acknowledged that the entire potential of the SME sector has however to be unleashed, the additional so inside the fashionable context of globalization which requires greater competitiveness and effectivity in every native and overseas markets. A overview of the prevailing literature on the difficulties confronted by the SME sector pinpoints the shortcomings of the prevailing help system.
As Wignaraja and O’Neil (1999, p 64) argue:
“Undoubtedly the funding in SME help should not be delivering the growth required or anticipated on the enterprise stage and this ought to be improved. An overhaul of your whole help system is required to take care of the deficiencies (…) and to create a further cohesive built-in framework.”
It has been well-known that owing to the reality that SMEs are pretty versatile, they often lack the imaginative and prescient and self-discipline to maintain up a coherent approach to wards the market. IFC (2004) proposed that an aggressive push to be given to the sector of teaching and education.
One of many very important limitations to the adoption of e-business in Mauritius stays the dearth of perception into the system. Actually, (Kuwayama, 2001) found that firms believed that transactions on the net have been very unsafe. This instance seems to be recurrent in numerous creating nations as suggested by (Payne, 2002)
Options of Net and Factors
The utilization of internet in enterprise is probably going one of many devices that e-commerce provides. We start subsequently by overseeing some regular information about e-commerce as pertains to SMEs.
Frequent e-commerce information related to SMEs
The utilization of the Net and communication utilized sciences has been found to boost enterprise competitiveness, with the Net providing the possibility for SMEs to compete on equal phrases with greater organizations (Chapman et al., 2000). The occasion of e-commerce inside the closing ten years all world wide has involved a rising number of firms. E-commerce has been used as an very important lever to promote enterprise progress (Bianchi and Bivona, 2002). It is going to be vital for a company develop repeatedly if the company needs to maintain up aggressive profit. Thus firms must battle for regular progress preserving the intention of accelerating or simply sustaining their product sales and earnings ranges, to verify their survival (Claver et al., 2006). All by way of administration literature, many advantageous tales are unfold and researchers are encouraging SMEs to start e-commerce ventures with a goal to boost their product sales (Bianchi and Bivona, 2002). On the same time there could also be considerable effort expended, every in time and money, by governments to encourage small and medium sized enterprises to place cash into utilizing the Net (Beckinsale and Levy, 2004).
In line with Levy and Powell (2002) most SMEs do not view the Net because the necessary factor to their enterprise approach. Method is rarely raised as an enabler or as an inhibitor inside the literature. The entrepreneur is significant in determining the Net progress. However, strategic dedication has been confirmed to be very important in SMEs. Evaluation in various nations current that SMEs have been slower to undertake e-commerce than their greater counterparts, nevertheless the charge of the Net utilization in SMEs is rising pretty rapidly. Net has focused on huge firms, new enterprise fashions, the growth and progress of dot-coms and the ‘new monetary system.’ SMEs in typical industries have been slower to undertake e-commerce than their greater opponents and evaluation into utilizing the Net by such firms is extra moderen. (Drew, 2003)
Furthermore, as compared with the in depth literature on the importance and potential of the Net as a part of the enterprise ambiance, evaluation on organizational evolution and approach for the Net in firms is proscribed and sketchy. Almost all of publications, textual content material books, press articles, and white papers on the Net approach care for this problem on a significantly tactical stage: Learn how to assemble up distinctive aggressive place, entice prospects, and improve product sales. (Constantinides, 2004)
In some methods the sector of entrepreneurship and small medium sized company evaluation seems no nearer to understanding the dynamics of small enterprise progress after a few years of empirical analysis (Lowe and Henson, 2004). Whereas the issue of progress in small firms is topical and properly researched, the literature on progress processes and transitions in high-growth small firms is sparse and underrepresented inside the entrepreneurship and small enterprise journals. A present content material materials overview of abstracts obtained by means of a database search acknowledged solely two p.c addressing issues with extreme progress, progress processes and transitions as being key components of the revealed papers. Saulnier and Rosson (2004) further level out that expressions made in regards to the significance of e-business have not been completely matched by actions taken, notably inside the areas of staff teaching, know-how infrastructure, and functions to care for progress.
The utilization of ICT, know-how upgrading, and regular innovation are paramount to being aggressive and run at optimum effectivity. However there could also be comparatively little empirical data pertaining to SMEs in Mauritius and further notably in regards to the extent to which they’ve adopted ICTs in every day working of their firms.
A survey by Matadeen (2004) confirmed that most of the Mauritian firms have been managed by the householders themselves whatever the reality that they may have administration talents or not. With this in ideas, the approach to develop for SMEs and e-business ought to contemplate the native custom and customs in Mauritius.
Doable Place of the Net in Specific Progress Strategies Adopted by SMEs
The Net is usually supplied as an opportunity for smaller firms on account of it helps in the reduction of transaction costs and stage the having fun with self-discipline. Normally cited benefits embrace growing the scope of selling, wider and richer communication, reaching new markets, reducing the value of operations and partnering with suppliers and completely different collaborators. (Drew, 2003)
The Net provides a singular various to take a look at the evolution and progress of a enterprise sector on account of it has taken place over a relatively fast time interval (Javalgi et al. 2004). The preliminary Net ambiance is more likely to be described as a virgin ambiance, by way of which speedy progress is likely to be anticipated. Amongst rising utilized sciences, the Net is a model new channel for commerce related in all types of industries across the globe. As a model new strategic instrument, it is transforming firms and creating new alternate options along with challenges for worldwide entrepreneurs as many international locations are fast connecting to the worldwide market.
Data know-how is fixed to be an integral part of the advertising and marketing technique. Digital commerce is affecting the best way wherein enterprise are planning progress strategies and is the primary driver of firm progress. The key is for IT to be seen because the model new engine for progress, and by no means as a irritating value center. This finish in a model new mind-set: The primary focus should be not on how so much new know-how ought to cost, nevertheless on how so much revenue it’ll usher in. (Fruhling and Digman, 2000)
Many SMEs have made fashionable makes use of of the Net to invent new enterprise fashions or to bolster present practices (Drew, 2003). Companies with a historic previous of innovation are embarking on a full- scale digital commerce approach. These firms are tying innovation with digital commerce with the hopes to verify agency progress. Fruhling and Digman (2000) level out digital commerce permits enterprise to quickly and successfully implement progress strategies. Considered one of many foremost causes this method is so engaging is the unimaginable progress charge of the Net clients.
Key Drivers for adoption of the Net in SME Progress
Levy and Powell (2002) explored the adoption of the Net amongst SMEs and formulated a model for the Net adoption. This model identifies four roles for the Net in SMEs brochure ware, help, various, and group. These are pushed by enterprise progress planning and perceived the Net price as confirmed in decide:
Levy and Powell (2002) advocate two key drivers in determining utilizing internet by SMEs. The first driver is enterprise progress. In some firms enterprise progress is deliberate and investments are made ahead of need. In numerous completely different SMEs progress may occur nevertheless not on account of planning. Angle to enterprise progress normally resolve whether or not or not SME householders keep in mind helpful useful resource funding inside the enterprise. IT funding is traditionally restricted in SMEs, with many investing at start-up, nevertheless no further funding is made until enterprise outgrows present system. It is low-cost that angle to progress will have an effect on SME’s dedication to place cash into the Net.
Enterprise Price from Use of the Net
The second driver is enterprise price from use of the Net. Enterprise price of the Net is acknowledged by way of response to the company’s aggressive positioning and their info of respective industries. SMEs do keep in mind the place of the Net for his or her enterprise normally with cautious technique. Most firms do not see the price of the Net to their progress approach. However, loads of visionary householders think about they’ll change their enterprise by way of utilizing the Net. (Levy and Powell, 2002)
Brochureware are these firms that do not plan enterprise progress and see the price of the Net as low. Homeowners normally consider the Net nevertheless can’t see its relevance to their enterprise. Considered one of many causes is nature of commerce by way of which SME operates. Due to this fact, there is a place for the Net for these firms nevertheless it is restricted to the presentation of on-line company information or brochures and for e-mails. (Levy and Powell, 2002)
Enterprise Various is SMEs with recognition that the Net has some price to them, eventually. However, it is restricted to enhancing effectivity internally, purchaser communication, and evaluation. The excellence between this class and Brochureware is that householders acknowledge the enterprise price of the Net and although not in quest of progress, acknowledge that aggressive stress demand funding. These firms see a enterprise various from use of the Net and related. (Levy and Powell, 2002)
Companies using the Net for Enterprise Help are planning progress, nevertheless in the mean time see little future for his or her firms from the Net. Most of time these SMEs are fashionable firms in quest of progress. They’ve loads of fashionable merchandise that are supplied to huge firms, so non-public contact is regarded by prospects as very important and there could also be little indication that the Net is of price. These SMEs search to develop nevertheless do not think about that commerce requires funding inside the Net to help that progress. These firms see the worth of the Net as a medium for enterprise help. (Levy and Powell, 2002)
In Enterprise Group various from the Net is seen as key to the occasion of SMEs. Companies see their future tied into using the Net. Companies develop IT approach alongside their enterprise approach most of the time. These are properly positioned to profit from e-Enterprise. These firms possesses environment friendly inside group accessible by all staff as means to deal with the enterprise processes. (Levy and Powell, 2002)
Advantages of the Net for SME Progress
In line with Davis et al. (2000) a firm-specific profit in penetrating worldwide markets and facilitating organizational progress may stem from investments in know-how or utilizing specific utilized sciences, such as a result of the Net. There is a prolonged historic previous of study linking know-how and internationalization. Researchers advocate that to enter worldwide markets, a company ought to possess some clear profit that will allow it to beat native firms’ further thorough understanding of the native market. Traditionally, multinational corporations use economies of scale and completely different advantages of big dimension.
However, many entrepreneurial firms can overcome the disadvantage of small dimension by way of their use of know-how, such as a result of the Net, to achieve clients previous their borders. Positive utilized sciences can current a bonus that widens market alternate options and serves as a platform for progress. The Net is broadly thought-about to be one such know-how speedy internationalization. (Davis et al. 2000)
Authors argue that internationalization and progress of firms are positively affected by elevated use of the Net and elevated investments in information know-how. In addition to, further consideration is to be paid to the making use of of the Net along with to the pattern of investments in information know-how to make clear worldwide progress and progress amongst entrepreneur- led firms. The continued globalization of the world monetary system makes the assumption of place of know-how in growing overseas and sustaining healthful progress.
Davis et al. (2000) level out that firms with further aggressive use of know-how are vulnerable to engage further in worldwide actions. Their analysis of internationalization amongst new, high-tech firms reveals that firms with elevated ranges of know-how utilization incur costs associated to internationalizing to be significantly lower than firms with lower ranges of know-how utilization. It appears that evidently firms with a technological profit have an incentive to extend overseas on account of they’ll use that profit in overseas markets at little or no marginal value over the value of making the profit inside the residence market.
Place of the Net in Product-Market Progress Method
On-line channels are used to advertise into new markets, benefiting from the low value of selling internationally with out the necessity for a supporting product sales infrastructure inside the prospects’ areas (Chaffey et al. 2003). This could be a comparatively conservative use of the Net, nevertheless is good various for SMEs to increase exports at low value. A a lot much less evident benefit of the Net is that along with selling into new geographic markets, merchandise might also be supplied to new market segments or a number of sorts of prospects. This may happen merely as a byproduct of getting an internet web page. The Net may provide further alternate options for selling to market sub-segments that have not been beforehand targeted. As an illustration, a product supplied to huge firms might also attraction to small firms.
The Net would be the concept for product progress, information sharing, helpful useful resource sharing, info sharing and exercise assigning between fully completely different firms. This might improve product prime quality and scale back progress time and worth. (Yujun et al., 2006) Product progress is fashionable use of the Net (Chaffey et al., 2003). Howe et al., (2000) report that the Net provides world entry to people, data, software program program, paperwork and multimedia have allowed organizations to shorten the occasion cycle of newest merchandise, to talk with specialists from across the globe, to acquire fast purchaser solutions, and to entry supercomputers for industrial evaluation and progress.
In line with Howe et al., (2000) the Net and its related functions might be efficiently utilized at assorted ranges of product progress. As an illustration, on-line boards, newsgroups, and Web sites current an exterior provide for product ideas. Market evaluation might be carried out on the Net as fairly just a few Web sites current demographic information useful for estimating market dimension and potential. Surveys might be carried out on the Net by way of the enterprise case preparation to seek out out clients’ desires, needs and preferences. Web-based and intranet functions can play an very important place inside the progress half, notably when duties include fairly just a few teams at assorted locations. Providing environment friendly media for talking and disseminating information, these utilized sciences moreover facilitate concurrent engineering. The Net could be utilized for beta testing of newest merchandise, allowing lead clients and firms to collaboratively eradicate product defects earlier to market introduction.
The Net and its related utilized sciences can add very important price to new-product progress duties. The first price lies inside the acceleration of worthwhile ideas by way of the model new product progress course of. On the same time, risks associated to this `rush to market’ are minimized as a correct system to weed out poor ideas quickly and to counsel modifications to product concepts. The utilization of the Net and/or intranet at assorted ranges not solely minimizes time to launch nevertheless might improve the mixture of constituent viewpoints/solutions, occasion clients, engineers, promoting, and so forth., all through progress. This integration of the `voice of the shopper’ and completely different purposeful members of the company are very important in worthwhile new product introductions. Need for tempo is popping into further salient in instantly’s aggressive enviornment. The company that is first to launch a model new product/know-how, i.e. the pioneer, can accrue various pioneering advantages. These advantages embrace, nevertheless normally aren’t restricted to: establishing product necessities, establishing mannequin equity (combination of consciousness, perceived prime quality, mannequin loyalty, and so forth.), securing distribution channels, and setting preliminary purchaser expectation for all completely different merchandise. (Howe et al., 2000)
The Net provides alternate options for firms of their new product progress pursuits by means of enhancing their expertise to collect, categorize and use information needed for product progress; serving to them understand their market greater and thus objective it further efficiently; producing a wider differ of newest product ideas from a wider differ of sources; making the concept screening course of additional full, versatile and objective; rising the tempo and the usual of enterprise analyses; facilitating the collaboration of newest product group members and enhancing operational effectivity; rising the tempo and the usual of testing and validation; enhancing the effectiveness and the effectivity of manufacturing progress; enhancing the effectiveness and the effectivity of newest product launch. (Howe et al., 2000)
