KUALA LUMPUR: Digi Business and TNG Digital have teamed up to help micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) digitalise and grow their business as the government steps up the digitalisation drive.
In a joint statement on Wednesday, they said the MSMEs will be provided with a complete suite of essential digital solutions, always-on connectivity and e-wallet facilities.
They said the past year showed digitalisation was fundamental for business continuity. To help MSMEs address common digitalisation challenges, Digi Business strengthened its digital solutions for MSMEs, with added benefits by TNG Digital.
Digi’s chief business officer, Eugene Teh said a robust digital ecosystem for SMEs includes having access to a fast and secure network connectivity, relevant and best-in-value digital solutions and tools, and a convenient e-wallet platform to facilitate online retail transactions.
“Through this partnership, both Digi Business and TNG Digital will be able to leverage each other’s expertise to provide well-rounded packages for the benefit of MSMEs. This further strengthens Digi Business’ commitment to be a trusted digital partner to MSMEs, ” Teh said.
As for TNG Digital, it has been actively driving initiatives to support MSME merchants in adopting multi-channel payment platforms to remain competitive.
TNG Digital CEO Ignatius Ong said the partnership with Digi Business would enable them to initiate solutions for the businesses to grow and expand, leveraging on TNG Digital’s over 15 million user base.
“The Touch ‘n Go eWallet is a brand many Malaysians have ingrained into their daily lives. We will ensure we continuously develop as the rakyat moves into the next era of digitalisation – assisting MSMEs grow, and making it our key focus to elevate the economy by enabling simple and impactful solutions, ” Ong said.
The recently launched Malaysia’s Digital Economy Blueprint, MyDIGITAL emphasised the importance of digitalisation in the nation’s ambitions to become a fully digital economy. The government targets to aid 875,000 MSMEs go digital via e-commerce.
The partnership enables Digi Business and TNG Digital’s MSMEs customers to enjoy benefits from both parties.
Digi Business customers who choose to onboard their business with Touch ‘n Go eWallet will be featured on the latter’s digital marketing channels, boosting visibility of their business and effectively reaching out to over 15 million Touch ‘n Go eWallet users nationwide.
