SMEs to Receive Grants for Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Systems Implementations
The recent Malaysian government’s annual budget announcement emphasizes the importance placed in the small and medium enterprises (“SMEs”) sector. As part of the Malaysian government’s National Budget 2020, there are incentives for companies that invest in the automation and digitalisation of their businesses. Specifically, the Malaysian government is allocating RM550 million in smart automation matching grants to 1,000 manufacturing companies and 1,000 service companies in order to automate their business processes.
Along with this, the first 100,000 SMEs that apply, will receive a 50 percent matching grant of up to RM5,000 as an incentive for subscribing to digital services for business operations. Digital services include things like electronic Point of Sale systems (“e-POS”), Enterprise Resources Planning (“ERP”) and electronic payroll systems.

The government is providing substantial incentives and assistance to improve SME business efficiencies that will enable them to maintain a competitive edge within and outside of Malaysia. Because of this, SMEs should seriously consider incorporating ERP systems into their business operations.
A Basic Explanation of ERP Systems
If you haven’t yet heard of ERP systems, they are crucial for managing business functions efficiently. In essence, an ERP is a centralized and integrated system that provides controls to manage business operations in an integrated way. All data is stored in a single system, meaning that problems can be easily identified and informed decisions can be quickly made.
Staff, customers, and inventory can be managed on a single system, which provides you with a 360 degree view into your organization’s operations. Along with this, the most tedious tasks are automated with ERPs. In the end, an ERP system in a business means more productivity, improved collaboration, and happier customers.
