Digital Economy index (DEi)

How do your local businesses’ online presence compare to their competition? Are they relevant in an increasingly online economy? What are the benefits from broadband that businesses should be leveraging? SNG’s Digital Economy Index (DEi) answers these questions for individual businesses – the local wealth creators and source of sustainability for a broadband network.

SNG’s DEi Scorecard is an assessment tool that is targeted at end-users, drawing on information from their own self-assessment and then comparing it against our database of 30,000 businesses. Business owners and managers can see where they stand by taking an online assessment and comparing where they are, versus where they need to be in order to be competitive. SNG will provide not only a DEi Scorecard, but access to SNG’s proprietary DEi Impact Calculator that shows the impact that adoption of specific e-solutions can have on the bottom line.

The DEi provides a roadmap of practices and e-solutions for businesses to develop their own broadband adoption plan (and economic growth path) with actionable insights into how utilization of e-solutions can increase efficiencies, innovation, and profitability.
