KUALA LUMPUR: Microlink Solutions Bhd is strengthening its presence in Vietnam through a partnership with AquaOne Corp.
This follows Microlink’s existing technology engagement with leading insurance provider Vien Dong Assurance Corporation (VASS).
AquaOne is one of the leading water supply and treatment companies in Vietnam.
The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with AquaOne will allow Microlink to explore a number of areas including digitalisation of business automation processes, business analytics, Internet of things (IOT) and advanced automation and monitoring technologies.
Microlink chief executive officer Ramlee Abdullah said the company aimed to provide a reliable and consistent supply of clean water to the local community.
“The digitalisation initiatives that we will explore together via this MoU will contribute to ensuring that AquaOne is able to achieve its drive for advanced business automation and becoming a pioneer in the field of environmental technology,” he said.
AquaOne chairman Do Thi Kim Lien, said the company’s goal was to ensure it would grow faster to help fulfil the government’s targets in resolving the urgent social issues for the Vietnamese people, particularly in terms of basic utilities such as clean water.
“In order to achieve that goal, we need a worthy technology partner to help the corporation move forward in the time of Industry 4.0. We are confident that Microlink will be that partner, supporting us in terms of technology, giving us wings to achieve our sustainable development goals for a healthy Vietnam,” she said.
The new venture continues the digitalisation work that Microlink is already carrying out in-country for VASS.
VASS began its digital journey back in 2018 when it became one of the first insurance provider in Vietnam to offer mobile engagement capabilities to its partner ecosystem.
In order to take its digital transformation journey to the next level, VASS approached Microlink to develop a blueprint for a customer data platform, comprising several key components to achieve swift go-to-market and increased customer base.
“We are truly excited to be working in this dynamic environment with such visionary companies as VASS and AquaOne and we look forward to building a successful and productive partnership with both organisations to achieve their digital transformation,” Ramlee said.
