Top 5 Challenges faced by SMEs

SMEs are playing an important role in economic development and also in the country’s economy. SME contribution to the Philippine economy accounted for around 63.3% of employment and 35% of GDP in 2019. They also account for 25% of export revenue, and an estimated 60% of exporters are SMEs according to the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI). Although it gives a good number, business owners are still facing problems with regard to their business:

  1. Strategy and plan execution

  • Executing strategies and plans would help businesses especially small to medium enterprises (SMEs) to succeed. Meeting the objectives each month would help the business owners to start to gain benefits not just in operation but also in the accounting system as well as their marginal gains. Dave Brailsford, a British cycling coach, believed in marginal gains as “the 1 percent margin for improvement in everything you do.” His belief was that if you improved every area related to cycling by just 1 percent, then those small gains would add up to remarkable improvement.
  1. Make business remarkable

  • The challenge of finding a competitive edge in today’s congested marketplaces is really difficult. The means of time, money, and resources of the company would be very important to ensure the business has done everything to stand out and be remarkable. The good use of quality and uniqueness are some of the ways to make the business stand out in today’s marketplace. Then having exceptional customer service would really help the business be remarkable because this way serves the customer’s solution for the issues, over the phone, email, or physically.
  1. Systems and Processes

  • A lot of small to medium enterprises (SMEs) seem to think having systems and processes make them less competitive. But the case actually is in reverse.

This is to make the right business decision at the right time with real-time access to information. This automation of your business process is to increase productivity.
  1. Time management
