The Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) has recently launched the #DigitalvsCovid campaign, which rallies local tech and digital companies to extend their services and create incentives for those affected by the nationwide Movement Control Order (MCO).
So far, 80 local tech-centric companies have joined the campaign and are offering a multitude of solutions and services on a pro-bono basis to help businesses and consumers through the challenges resulting from the MCO. The list of companies and their individual incentives are listed here: https://mdec.my/home/c19techrelief/
Whether it is an attractive discount or strategic collaborations, the companies expressed sincere interests to help buffer the impact of the MCO at large.
Pay It Forward
“While large corporations have contingency plans to minimize the impact of Covid-19, many SMEs and micro-enterprises may not be able to tide through this global pandemic. One way forward is through automation and digitalization. We are proud to announce that 80 tech companies are waiting to render their services and MDEC urges entrepreneurs from all industries to leverage on these offerings,” said Surina Shukri, CEO of MDEC.
“Many SMEs are experiencing interrupted supply-chain movement, delays in business processes that require paperwork, limited tools to engage their stakeholders, constraints in conducting non-cash transactions, as well as challenges in managing a high-volume workforce. Nonetheless, we are confident that our Global Acceleration And Innovation Network (GAIN) companies can offer relief to SMEs by resolving some of these difficulties,” added Surina.
