AwanBiru Technology Berhad's (“Awantec” or the “Group”) wholly-owned subsidiary Awantec Systems Sdn. Bhd. (“ASSB”) has secured a RM821,500.00 contract from the Jabatan Perkhidmatan Awam Negeri Sabah (“JPANS”) Sabah to supply the Skillsoft Percipio e-learning licences.
Having purchased 1,500 of the e-learning licences back in 2021, this purchase of 5,500 licences is the second purchase done by JPANS as part of its Sabah ELITE Percipio - an initiative by the Sabah State Government to foster lifelong learning culture for their officers.
Pleased with the development, Awantec is committed to providing continuous support for Sabah State Government, in ensuring that their officers will continue to be able to upskill themselves in any field of their choice, anytime, anywhere, on any mobile devices. This is in line with the Fifth Enabler of Digital Government within the Hala Tuju Sabah Maju Jaya development blueprint.
“It was a proud moment for us to witness the Skillsoft Percipio’s launch by the State Secretary of Sabah, Yang Berhormat Datuk Seri Panglima Sr. Haji Safar Bin Untong last year. We are even prouder to see how much the initiative has progressed today - from 1,500 officers to more than 5,000 officers to be upskilled into a competent and globally recognised talent pool in driving Sabah forward,” said Awantec’s Director, Talent and Development, Dr. Peter Lee Fuei Siong.
To date, Sabah ELITE Percipio platform has recorded more than 17,000 hours of learning by members of various ministries and agencies across the land below the wind - including its Chief Minister’s Department. The additional licences purchased are expected to propel the learning hours up by a fair margin for JPANS.
Representing Awantec, he added that the Group is fully devoted to ensure smooth transition to e-learning for all of the officers involved and committed to provide administrative and support services free of charge for an entire year.
The additional order is expected to contribute positively to the Group’s revenue.
