KUALA LUMPUR: Public Bank’s PB enterprise Digital SME Assist programme will enable businesses to enjoy a wide range of digital business solutions.
In a statement on Tuesday, it said this programme is part of the collaboration with several tech companies to offer a sustainable platform for business enterprise to grow by enhancing their digital capabilities in tandem with their business expansion.
Since its launched in mid-April this year, many SME and corporate customers have benefited from this programme with increased business growth and accelerated digital transformation.
“The Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting Movement Control Order (MCO) have further highlighted how crucial digitalisation is and the need to transition to a more digital-enabled environment for business survival.
“Public Bank recognises this and that businesses, particularly SMEs, require assistance to transform and digitalise their business operations in the most cost-efficient manner in order to thrive in the new normal,” it said.
Public Bank said it has identified pertinent areas for businesses in the current climate and collaborate with the solution providers in the fields of accounting, human resource, e-commerce, workforce, property management, digital marketing, mobile and network to assist the SME customers.
These vital solutions are provided through the several tech companies which the Bank has teamed up with for the benefits of the business customers.
The tech companies include Biztory, a cloud accounting system; Kakitangan.com, an online human resources system; EasyStore, an all-in-one e-commerce solution that allow SMEs to sell via online stores such as Shopee, Lazada, Google Shopping and other sales channels easily via a centralised platform.
The others are TimeTec, a cloud and app based workforce and property management solutions provider; Exabytes, a digital marketing platform that manages websites for online businesses and Digi, one of the top telco provider in Malaysia offering business mobile plans and virtual business telephone solution to cater to all business needs.
“Apart from benefitting the business customers, this collaboration with the tech companies will also promote these local champions with viable products to grow exponentially.
“This is also one of the ways that Public Bank is supporting Malaysia’s local start-up and entrepreneurial ecosystem,” Public Bank said.
