This EPP aspires to get more Malaysian companies online, enhance telepresence services and enhance telecommunication infrastructure. These targets aim to fast-track the adoption of new value-added communication services for business, household and Government use.
Together with Google Malaysia, this EPP has launched the Get Malaysian Business Online (GMBO) drive to address the 15% of Malaysia’s 700,000 active small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that do not have an online presence. GMBO offers SMEs user-friendly website-building kits, as well as training on how to maximise their online business potential.
In other developments under this EPP, PERNEC Corporation Bhd and its French media agency partner Kaatchi are working to install 200 PayPoint booths in urban areas to boost this EPP. Apart from making phone calls, PayPoint provides a WiFi platform for the public to access the Internet and mobile phone reload services.
This EPP has also been tasked with enhancing location-aware services and fleet management, with some new services in this area targeted to be launched in 2013.
- The Telematics Project, a joint collaboration between Telekom Malaysia Bhd and Milan Utama, was launched in 2014, providing a common platform and marketplace for content and solution providers to connect with vehicle drivers/owners. Among the highlights of the project were the Automatic Vehicle Location System that was launched with more than 800 subscribers and the completion of the Anti-Theft System. The TSP stage 1 back-end, a back-end service delivery platform, was also completed in 2014.
