SHAH ALAM: Engineering services provider Serba Dinamik Holdings Bhd is targeting to achieve sales of RM150mil to RM200mil for its information technology (IT) segment this year.
In comparison, the group’s IT segment achieved sales of RM8mil last year, and for the first four months of 2019, the group garnered revenue of RM25mil.
Group CEO Datuk Karim Abdullah said the target would be driven by its consumer IT products, particularly the cashless payment solution QwikPay which now has 50,000 users. Additionally, Serba Dinamik has RM50mil worth of IT projects in hand.
“We are confident of achieving our sales target. Going forward, IT will be an important business for Serba Dinamik. We will tap into our geographical network in the Middle East, Asia and Central Asia to grow this segment.
“The upcoming Beyond Paradigm Summit 2019 will also provide a marketing opportunity for our IT products,” he said at a briefing.
In line with Serba Dinamik’s push for IT and technologies of fourth Industrial Revolution (IR 4.0), the group is organising the Beyond Paradigm Summit 2019, which will feature social humanoid robot Sophia for the first time in Malaysia.
To be held on July 17-18 at the Malaysian International Trade and Exhibition Centre, the summit will showcase advanced technologies encapsulating the core ideas of digitalisation and data exchange surrounding IR 4.0.
“We are preparing ourselves for the challenges by embracing the advanced technologies of IR 4.0 that include what is called Smart Maintenance and Manufacturing.
“It is the new approach to combining traditional maintenance and manufacturing processes and technology, such as the Internet of Things, to improve automation, communication and use of real-time data,” said Karim.
