Formis (FRB) in partnership talks with big IT service providers (Edge)

Information and Communications Technology outfit Formis Resources Bhd is currently in discussions with large technology service providers to form partnerships that will help it “do bigger things”, especially in the area of innovation and disruptive technology.
“These discussions are all underway,” said Datuk Larry Gan, group chief executive officer of Formis after the company’s annual general meeting (AGM) and extraordinary general meeting yesterday.

Gan said these partnerships will help the firm tap into the large corporations’ clientele market, apart from growing its existing small and medium enterprises (SME) customer base. “For instance, we will go to a bank and figure out how to help them to adopt disruptive technologies and compete locally as well as regionally and globally,” he said.

For these initiatives, Formis will leverage on a new unit created within the group, dubbed “Omesti innovation lab” that provides a range of technology systems, services and solutions for financial institutions, government departments, utility and energy firms, and telecommunications...
