KUALA LUMPUR: Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM) has introduced an ICT (information and communications technology) solution specifically tailored to the requirements of small and medium enterprises (SMEs).

The ICT solution will benefit SMEs beyond the connectivity services that are convenient to them for more effective business operation.

SME customers consisting of micro and small businesses including those who are operating their businesses from home will also benefit from this latest initiative from TM.

“This is in line with TM’s role in driving the economic growth of SMEs and as the leading broadband provider in Malaysia,” said Azizi A Hadi, TM executive VP of SMEs.

Speaking at the launch of the third edition of SME BizFest 2014 in Kuala Lumpur, Azizi said TM is committed to empowering local SMEs to move up the value chain.

Unlike previous years where there were only three locations, the BizFest this year has been extended to four locations.

“We want to encourage as many SMEs to participate and at the same time position ourselves as their preferred one-stop solutions provider with a comprehensive and innovative range of tools to help their business grow,” he reiterated.

He said by understanding the needs and challenges faced by the SMEs, TM has put forth four focus themes for this year’s Bizfest event, designed to help the SMEs in getting more business and customers.

SMEs will be able to differentiate themselves locally and internationally, using the ICT solutions that TM has to offer.

The first one-day event themed “Innovate to Dominate,’’ which will be held on April 24 at the Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre, will feature business conference, knowledge sharing, exhibition as well as networking sessions.

It will also provide the right platforms for SMEs to acquire business tips shared by speakers in the ICT field while, at the same time, have the opportunity to experience the latest ICT solutions exhibited by the participating partners during the event.

The other BizFest locations are Persada Johor International Convention Centre, Johor Baru, (May 7), Equatorial Hotel, Penang (May 22) and Borneo Convention Centre, Kuching, Sarawak (June 19).
