ComOps has signed a deal to provide integrated software solutions to Malaysian distribution and services company OdaSaja.
The contract is aimed at advancing the Malaysian government's "one home, one computer" program, a federal initiative designed to equip every Malaysian household with a computer, ComOps, a local business software developer, said in an ASX statement.
Under the program, Malaysian families may access their pension funds to pay for a new PC and software, and choose from a range of models using ComOps e-Catalogue technology, company officials said.
Officials said e-Com eases order entries, applications and enquiries through the Web-based e-Catalogue into ComOps business management solutions (BMS). These tools enable OdaSaja to process distribution, warehousing, financial and management information through a suite of integrated modules, the vendor said, which will then produce purchase orders in real time from PC suppliers like HP, IBM and Gateway.
"With orders received each week from more than 600 [government post offices] around the country, we needed a software solution that will keep accurate track of the orders, including payment and fulfilment," said OdaSaja's Ismail Ahmad.
OdaSaja is ComOps' first South-East Asian client, and the deal also marks the beginning of ComOps' long-term strategy of raising its profile in the Asian market.
A ComOps spokesperson refused to disclose the value of the deal, only indicating it was "significant."
