Enterprise Connect is a $200 million Australian Government initiative designed to boost productivity, improve innovation and increase the competitiveness of Australian small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs).
Enterprise Connect recognises that one of the biggest challenges facing SMEs is having the time and know-how to implement innovative changes in their business.
Through a national network of Enterprise Connect Manufacturing Centres, highly skilled Business Advisers deliver integrated, practical services that help SMEs improve productivity, build internal capacity and capitalise on their growth potential.

How Saward Dawson can help you
Our team of business advisory consultants have many years of experience in delivering solutions to business owners and managers.
Saward Dawson can help you with:
Financial and key performance measures: An effective reporting system summarises the information you need to know and delivers it on time so that you can act upon it. It must deliver information that is relevant and critical to decision making.
Strategic business planning: A strategic plan for your business can be the difference between success and failure.
Succession planning, business sales and acquisitions: Many owners have no idea of the value of their business, or what drives the value up or down. At some point you are going to need to access equity in your business. You need to start planning as early as possible.
Process improvement, Quality Management Systems & resource planning: Every business needs effective systems to monitor and control costs in all areas.
