The Digital Enterprise Program finished in August 2015, and had provided free group training and face-to-face support for small-to-medium enterprises and not-for-profit community organisations just like these to help improve the way they do business and deliver services online. For those who wanted to get their  business or community organisation online, but didn't know where to start, or needed some help with their transition to e-commerce, or just wanted practical advice about the internet and what it means for their organisation, the DEP offered free information sessions.
