I-Bhd to offer IT solutions to others

SHAH ALAM: I-Bhd, the developer of i-City commercial project, is looking to offer its digital technology solutions to other developments in the region.

Speaking at the launch of the I-Office Squared (iO2) system yesterday, chairman Tan Sri Hamad Kama Piah Che Othman said this would be a technology-based income for the company.

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

The system was launched by Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha.

Hamad said tenants at i-City would be offered a range of built-in facilities and services that would enable them to lower operational costs.

I-Bhd has teamed up with Cisco and Australia-based Servcorp to set up a joint-venture, i-Office2 Sdn Bhd, to provide managed services to i-City and other property projects in the country.

The iO2 is a multi-tenant managed service system. The key tenant service offerings include high-speed Internet access, IP telephony and unified communications, wireless/mobility solutions, network and physical security and control over their office environments.

I-Bhd CEO Eu Hong Chew said the company would focus on local markets for its technology solutions services before venturing into other countries in the region.

“We will probably have the first roll out of the iO2 system beyond i-City by early next year,” he told StarBiz in a phone interview.

He said I-Bhd was looking to either invest and provide its solutions to projects undertaken by other developers or license the products to them.
