“Slovenian companies are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of digitalization and its effect on competitiveness, shows a survey conducted by the Slovenian-German Chamber of Commerce. They see the skills of their staff, high costs of the process and data protection as the biggest challenges.

Just over 90% of Slovenian companies think digitalization is important, the chamber’s head Gertrud Rantzen told the press on Wednesday.

For the first time in the three years the chamber has conducted the survey, companies said they saw digitalization as necessary to remain competitive, she said.

The three main reasons speaking in favor of digitalization, according to companies, are higher productivity, competitiveness and effectiveness.” (Slovenia Times)
