SMECluster was created in the late 90's before the idea of Clustering really took off. It has taken many years to get the culture change for businesses and individuals to work together under a common platform and brand.
In order that SMECluster could trade, Sematronix Limited is the legal entity behind SMECluster and would act as the legal body for trading activities on the portal where necessary.
SMECluster is a trustworthy portal providing information, links, useful tools and services for small businesses, communities and individuals. A great source for revenue generation through access to funding streams, tender opportunities or access to business tools that can save you time and money.
The original concept was to provide a place where you could get good reliable information about what's available in the local community. The following statement summarised the initial concepts:
"Whether you're a well established business or looking to start one, it's always good to find a source of information that can give you all the basic tools, information, signposting to help you grow your business. Of course you don't have to be a business person to benefit from SMECluster. Individuals and community groups can contribute or benefit from the cluster. The target areas are highlighted in the links above (Training, Office, Environmental, Tendering, Research and Industrial) covering all the main sectors and disciplines most people will be categorised under or would want to look for. Whether you're looking to reduce the piles of paperwork or looking for new business opportunities you will something of value on the portal."
Behind the scenes the structure of the portal is being constructed and new features should pop up all the time. If you have any great ideas to improve the site please contact us by clicking here.
