TM to launch mobile packages via webe for SMEs in April

Eyes on Webe to become profitable and boost Telekom Malaysia's earnings

KUALA LUMPUR: Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM) is expected to officially launch mobile solution packages for small and medium enterprise (SMEs) through its digital mobility services provider, webe, on April 11. 

Executive Vice President Imri Mokhtar said on Wednesday the product packages are currently going through the final stages of preparation, but SMEs can still register their interest with TM. 

"In an effort to help SMEs accelerate the adoption of information and communication technology (ICT) and the Internet of Things (IoT), we have engaged with them to understand and determine their current services in the creation of the packages.

"This is to ensure that it will truly benefit them, even when out of their homes or offices," Imri told reporters after the launch of the company's first leg of the SME BizFest 2017 here.

Revealing some of the features, he said the packages offered would be almost similar with the webe individual mobile service packages, but with some added value, no contract and a worry-free unlimited usage of Internet data. 

Meanwhile, Imri also said TM is targeting between eight and 10 per cent of its household customers to subscribe to webe services by this year from two per cent as of Dec 31, 2016. 

TM has about 2.7 million customers. 

On the event, Imri said the one-day SME BizFest 2017, its sixth edition, is specifically designed to address SME focus in the areas of improving their sales and marketing activities, increase productivity and enhance customer experience with the presence of 20 partners and exhibitors to help them. 

He said special offers and promotions are also available for SMEs, which could bring savings of up to RM2,000. 

Themed, "Innovate to Dominate: Go Digital", this year's event would also be held at Kuching (March 30), Kota Bharu (April 4), Johor Bahru (April 11) and Kota Kinabalu (May 11) with an overall expectation of attracting over 6,000 SMEs. 

The event is also supported by SME Corporation Malaysia (SME Corp) and Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC).
