New category: Safe Workplace of the Digital Kit 2024

The Digital Kit and Artic Agency Safe Work site has arrived, we understand that the barrage of information about what's new in the Digital Kit can be overwhelming and often more confusing than enlightening. That's why we've decided to create this space to answer your initial questions and help you make the most of everything the Digital Kit has to offer.

What is Kit Digital's safe workplace?

The new category announced by RED.ES of Order TDF/435/2024, of May 9, is the Safe Workplace. This category allows SMEs to receive a laptop, complying with strict specifications to guarantee its functionality and safety. The device, which will be delivered by us, will include 12 months of support and care, as well as cyber security protection.

One of the big questions from some customers is whether a mobile phone or tablet can be requested. The answer that RED has given us is clear: NO, it is not compatible with the specified conditions. So, if you find yourself in the situation where some digitizer offers you this product, we advise you to be careful, as RED has been clear on this aspect and this type of devices is not included in the solution.

I have already enjoyed the Starter Kit, can I access the expansion for this new category?

Yes, SMEs that have already received a Kit can access the new funds. All SMEs in Segment III (those with between 0 and 2 employees) have the option to request an extension of their Kit, regardless of whether it has already been granted, spent or expired.

What is the process like, do they give me the money and I buy the computer or are you in charge?

The terms of RED state that the beneficiary must have a secure workplace, which in this case is a fully configured computer, with support, assistance and cyber security. That's why the company you trust that you authorize to request the Kit will be in charge of sending you this computer to the address you give them. This, in part, is to be able to meet the requirements of RED.ES regarding the functionality and the benefits of the equipment, which will be verified by RED.ES at the 12 months of provision. In case of non-compliance with any requirement, this category will not be validated, which may lead to a claim for the amount by the administration to the beneficiary and the company in charge.
