Heitech Padu Bhd expects to balance its portfolio of public and private sector projects in the local technology outsourcing market, said its executive chairman Datuk Mohd Hilmey Mohd Taib.
“We are bidding for projects in the private sector as we believe we have certain strengths. It would improve the balance of our private and public sector projects,” he said.
HeiTech Padu, a provider of information technology-related services and systems integrator, had hitherto relied heavily on public sector projects, Hilmey told reporters after signing an agreement with Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya Malaysia (SPR) for end-to-end connection services and network maintenance.
The project, which costs less than RM500,000, will allow SPR to check on the validity of voters.
Commenting on the outlook for outsourcing,, Hilmey said: “It’s phenomenal and gaining acceptance. We are certainly ready and want to have a share in it.”
He quoted International Data Corp as crediting HeiTech Padu with a 6% share of the local outsourcing market (including networks, security and facilities management).
