TM Wants To Raise ICT Awareness Among SMEs
JOHOR BAHARU, May 7 (Bernama) -- Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM) aims to raise awareness of information and communications technology (ICT) among small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to boost their growth.

TM's SME Executive Vice President Azizi A. Hadi said although ICT could raise SMEs' productivity and efficiency, many SME operators, especially those running home-based businesses, use social media like Facebook only to promote their products, and do not give much thought to marketing, product delivery and customer payment strategies.

He was speaking this to reporters after opening the company's SME BizFest 2014 here Wednesday.

The event, aimed at teaching SME operators proper business techniques and how ICT can empower their businesses, was held in Petaling Jaya last month, and moves to Penang on May 22 and Kuching, Sarawak on June 19.
