SHAH ALAM: Property developer I-Bhd is looking to expand its digital technology solutions to other development areas in the country and the region.

Speaking at the launch of the i-Office2 (iO2) system here yesterday, I-Bhd chairman Tan Sri Hamad Kama Piah Che Othman said the company’s latest endeavour would provide it with technology-based income.

“When this rollout is fully operational, I-Bhd will have another revenue stream to complement the one from property development,” he said.

Hamad Kama Piah said the built-in facilities and services of i-City would enable clients to save costs due to the extensive planning, significant economies of scale and strategic alliances with partners. iO2 is the result of a joint venture between I-Bhd and Australian virtual business offices creator Servcorp to deploy network and telecommunication services throughout the i-City development.

Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha, who launched the iO2 system, said it was not surprising that digital technology was incorporated into property development.

“This ICT-enabled commercial development will act as a catalyst to spur more growth for activities driven by economies of knowledge especially in the IT-related sector,” he said.
