CYBERJAYA, 7 February 2024 - AwanBiru Technology Berhad (“Awantec”), Malaysia’s leading technology and talent digitalisation enabler, has today entered into a partner agreement with Sage (“Sage”), a global market leader in cloud-based ERP software, supporting millions of small and medium-sized businesses. Sage X3, its top-of-the-line product, provides a secured, simple, and flexible ERP platform that consolidates all business-critical data in one database for smarter analysis, clearer insights, and stronger business planning.
The partnership will leverage Awantec and Sage’s joint expertise to drive innovation and digital transformation for customers and industries, focusing on Cloud Based Next Generation Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software to increase businesses’ productivity and improve their processes.
The collaboration will strengthen Awantec’s capability to support our national digitalisation especially with the introduction of e- Invoice in Malaysia. As announced during Budget 2024 and in line with the Twelfth Malaysia Plan, where one of the key focuses is on strengthening the digital services infrastructure and digitalising the tax administration, the government intends to implement e-Invoice in stages in an effort to enhance the efficiency of Malaysia’s tax administration management.
Building on Awantec and Sage’s ongoing investments and commitment to offer cloud based solutions, the partnership aims to deliver new products and services, with Awantec serving as Sage’s business partner to promote, market, distribute, and resell Sage X3 products and services exclusively within Malaysia.
Awantec’s Chief Executive Officer, En. Azlan Zainal Abidin, said, “We are pleased to partner with Sage in providing new products that will serve today’s digital customers and industries. Collaborating with Sage will elevate Awantec’s product offering to our customers in the industry, especially since Sage has already embarked on a partnership with Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) for the National e-Invoicing initiative. Awantec is committed to supporting the nation’s digital transformation and digital economy agenda through our 20 years of experience in delivering large scale digital projects and a highly-skilled team. We believe that this partnership will benefit both sides and establish new benchmarks for strategic collaborations in the industry.”
