Wilstech, a Malaysian digitalisation firm, has signed a Memorandum of Collaboration (MoC) with Huawei Cloud, a global cloud service provider. This relationship allows Wilstech's services to be more widely recognised by established organisations and multinationals, but it also lets the two firms collaborate on creating digital transformation solutions for franchises using Huawei Cloud's future technologies. Yang Berhormat Senator Dato' Sri Dr. Haji Mohamad Ali bin Haji Mohamad, Deputy President of the Dewan Negara, also attended the occasion.
According to the terms of the MoC, Wilstech has been appointed as a technology partner to plan, consult, develop and implement joint opportunities and projects, thereby allowing existing Huawei partners and customers to transition to tech-based solutions through Wilstech's slew of digital offerings. Some of the services that will be provided include enterprise resource planning systems, web and mobile app development, network penetration tests, and more. To achieve this, both Wilstech and Huawei Cloud will focus on opening doors to future-oriented, cloud-based digital solutions to enable state-of-art services and experiences for customers keen on taking their business game to the next level.
CEO and co-founder of Wilstech, Wilson Low states "We are extremely honoured to join hands with an established organisation such as Huawei. Having already digitised over 168 SMEs, startups, and businesses, we are looking to keep the momentum going to grow the nation’s economy in the long run, starting with this partnership. We believe that our expertise will prove invaluable for companies in the long run. Through this partnership, we are certain that we will improve the effectiveness and productivity of SMEs, startups, and enterprise organisations alike.”
Despite external factors like encouragement from the government and the global pandemic necessitating the acceleration of digitisation efforts, the unfortunate reality is that there has been a lag in digital adoption among SMEs and startups. In fact, around 77% of SMEs in Malaysia still remain at the basic digitalisation stage.
Huawei has more than 30 years of technical knowledge and offers a wide range of innovative and dependable products and services to consumers worldwide. The company now provides services such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), analytics, storage, and more, in response to the increased demand for cloud technology and services. These services can help you optimise procedures, improve performance, and cut expenses.
Huawei Malaysia’s Vice President of the Cloud and AI Business, Mr Lim Chee Siong said, “It is always our goal at Huawei Cloud to dive into digitalisation and to provide Everything as a Service (XaaS). We will continue to innovate with local partners to offer cutting-edge technologies to support customers’ digital transformation journey. The collaboration with Wilstech will see more cloud-based digital solutions made ready for SMEs market in Malaysia.”
Wilstech was founded in 2016 with the goal of digitising Malaysia's SMEs and startups through tech-based solutions like HR, accounting, and CRM, infrastructure and hardware services, and software and mobile app development. Wilstech recently partnered with the Selangor Information Technology & Digital Economy Corporation (SIDEC) to deliver a Selangor SME Digitalisation Matching Grant to help 200 local SMEs start their digital transformation journeys.
