United Overseas Bank (Malaysia) Bhd (UOB Malaysia) today launched a business transformation programme, the “Jom1 Transform Programme”, to help businesses in Malaysia adopt technology to drive productivity and growth. The Jom Transform Programme is run by The FinLab, an innovation accelerator under United Overseas Bank Limited. The FinLab first launched its business transformation programme in Singapore in 2018.
During the three-month Jom Transform Programme, participating businesses will attend a series of workshops conducted by industry experts to gain the necessary skills and know-how in specific areas of digital transformation such as business process re-engineering and digital marketing. They will also be matched with specially-chosen technology partners to pilot relevant solutions and to receive guidance to assess the effectiveness of these solutions.
Mr Wong Kim Choong, Chief Executive Officer, UOB Malaysia, said the Jom Transform Programme reaffirms the Bank’s commitment to helping Malaysian businesses digitalise their businesses for continued growth.
Collaborating with ecosystem partners to drive success
UOB Malaysia will be working with five partners that share the common goal of helping Malaysian SMEs innovate and digitalise their business for growth. From both the private and public sectors, these partners are the Chinese Chamber of Commerce & Industry of Kuala Lumpur & Selangor (KLSCCCI), the Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (MATTA), Maxis, the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC)
and SME Corporation Malaysia (SME Corp. Malaysia).
The partners will support the Jom Transform Programme by providing mentorship and expertise to participating businesses. They will also organise events with UOB Malaysia and The FinLab to promote digitalisation among Malaysian businesses (see Appendix for details on the partners’ individual contributions).
Interested businesses are invited to attend the programme’s Kick-off Event on 21 June 2019, 2 pm at White Box, Publika Solaris Dutamas. They can register their interest at http://thefinlab.com/.
