Cloud ⍺ Series #7: Helping Malaysian SMEs #stayinbusiness

6 July 2020

Covid-19 and the resulting Movement Control Orders (MCO) brought great challenges to Malaysia – to the people, businesses and the economy as a whole. Many businesses were not allowed to operate. The Government announced financial relief initiatives to help Malaysians and SMEs weather the storm. Responding to the call from the Government, TM One worked hand-in-hand with the Government so that Malaysian SMEs could #stayinbusiness in these challenging times.

Today in history

  • The pandemic caused many local businesses to stop operations.
  • The Government announced the economic stimulus package, which included financial assistance for the people.
  • Millions of Malaysians swamped the portal to register for this financial assistance.
  • The existing on-premise system was congested due to the sudden surge in traffic.

The Challenge: SMEs' Hopes, Government's Balancing Act

  • SMEs was the focal segment in the 2nd phase of financial assistance.
  • The Government was concerned that the same overload and congestion will re-occur.
  • Seamless, Uninterrupted Services for the people is the Government’s top priority.
  • The Government needed a scalable solution as a stop-gap measure for the temporary surge.
