ASEAN KEY DESTINATIONS
Netherlands software firm increases Malaysia investment
Under the NEM, the government is calling on companies to adopt information technology (IT) to be globally competitive.
"Quintiq will be a key enabler in making this achievable," said Sanjay Nair, managing director of Quintiq's Malaysian operation, Quintiq Sdn Bhd.
"Besides this, we are fully aware of the potential here and this adds to the objective of our Global Development Centre here," he told Bernama in an interview recently.
Quintiq aims to meet the specific IT needs of businesses worldwide with its specific Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) solutions.
On the Global Development Centre, Sanjay said its presence in the country opened doors to enriching the economic landscape of local industries.
He said with the company's rich and diverse expertise in servicing multiple clients internationally, the knowledge transfer would both directly and indirectly benefit Malaysia in terms of knowledge and skills.
"This also creates more high-level employment opportunities, developing the human resource industry here, in line with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak's vision of creating a high income and skilled society," he added.
Sanjay said attractive financial incentives and cost competitiveness, along with a highly advanced ICT infrastructure supported by a pro-business government, were the main factors that attracted Quintiq to Malaysia.
The company planned to invest close to RM100 million over the next three years in Malaysia, mainly to develop human capital, especially skilled knowledge workers, he said.
