Maxis picked as tech partner for RM500 million SME Digitalisation Grant


Kuala Lumpur, 29 June 2020 – Maxis Bhd has been identified as a technology solutions partner (TSP) by the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) for the RM500 million SME Digitalisation Grant under Budget 2020.

As a TSP, Maxis is the first telecommunications company to deliver digital marketing and cloud point-of-sales solutions bundled with connectivity for SMEs, driving two out of five key SME digitalisation areas identified by the government.

Through the initiative, Maxis will be able to accelerate the digitalisation of SMEs in Malaysia, to help business reactivation and propel them forward in a post-MCO era.

“As Malaysia eases into the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO), we know that SMEs are anxious to get their business back into full swing.

“As an important segment to the Malaysian economy, we understand their immediate needs deeply, and are ready to help them leverage digital solutions quickly and easily, so that they can get their businesses running,” said Maxis chief entreprise business officer Paul McManus.

Maxis has been helping Malaysian SMEs on their digitalisation journey through eCommerce solutions for more than two years.

During the MCO and CMCO periods, Maxis launched its #KitaSapotKitaCampaign to support businesses with more than 100 tips and hacks in collaboration with business opinion leaders.

Now in its second phase, the campaign sees Maxis mobilising an SME Help Squad of 100 personnel to provide answers and advice as SMEs look to reignite their business.

In addition, Maxis has developed a series of “How To’s” that are free for download.
