MAXIS Berhad has launched its Built for SME Solution, an integrated solution for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the logistics and transportation sector.
The bundled solution, which Maxis claimed was the first of its kind in the country, comprises a host of services beyond fixed and mobile solutions, including Maxis Managed Machine-to-Machine (M2M), Logistics & Warehouse Management System via Maxis Cloud and Maxis Fixed Line Saver (FLS) with Unity Hotline.
Built for SME - Logistics & Transportation provides logistics SMEs with end-to-end solutions from mobile to applications and software in one bundled offering that is designed to help their business run efficiently and in the most cost-effective manner, Maxis said in a statement.
This solution will benefit price-conscious SMEs which require communications technology at low upfront investments and maintenance costs, and would enable them to access these services through a single provider to address all their communications needs, the company said.
Maxis also said it is partnering with software vendors Maytrack Sdn Bhd for the Maxis Managed M2M solutions and ProdigyNet Solutions Sdn Bhd for the Logistics and Warehouse Management System.
“Logistics and transportation [are in] the top five industries in the country, in terms of SME size and ICT spend, and are also expected to see a strong growth trend in the next three to four years,” said Fitri Abdullah, head of Maxis Business Services.
“Our Built for SME Solutions – Logistics & Transportation, therefore, is a timely and appropriate solution as they are tailor-made specifically for these SMEs to run their businesses seamlessly and boost productivity,” he added.
Built for SME Solution - Logistics & Transportation is the second of a series of vertical launches from Maxis in the SME market, following the successful launch of its Built for SME – Retail earlier this year.
Maxis’ Managed M2M solution is a self-managed web-based fleet management solution that offers business owners more information about their business processes, more automation with which to manage assets and increase productivity, and enables enterprise to offer customers a new generation of services with a lower cost to serve, Maxis said.
Combined with its 2G and 3G network, enterprises can monitor vehicles and perform remote diagnosis anytime and wherever they are, the company added.
Maxis FLS enables SMEs to enjoy savings offered by Maxis mobile rate plans with their office fixed line phone. With free calls of up to 38 hours between company lines, whether fixed or mobile, within one office location or between branches, companies can enjoy savings of up to 40% on their company’s monthly phone expenses.
