Exabytes has partnered with Google Cloud to create SME Kick-Starter Bundles for SMEs in Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia. The three business bundles offer Google Workspace, along with a free domain and 50 gigabytes of free backup storage.

The bundles aim to help SMEs to adopt and effectively utilise digital and cloud technologies to reduce costs, optimise processes, and reach more customers.

Built on Google Cloud’s communication and collaboration platform, Google Workspace brings together familiar applications like Gmail, Chat, Calendar, Drive, Docs, Sheets, and Meet into a single, integrated workspace, with built-in enterprise-grade access management, device management, data protection, and data encryption, to establish a secure remote working environment from anywhere, on any device.

“Digitalisation is vital for businesses looking to stay competitive, and Southeast Asia is seeing the fastest pace of digital transformation in the Asia Pacific region,” said Mr Chan Kee Siak, Founder and CEO of the Exabytes Group.

“We look forward to the possibilities of our partnership, and the new opportunities we will bring to SMEs to digitise their businesses and enhance their ability to grow and scale.”

By using Google Workspace, the bundles will give businesses a streamlined set of applications and tools to accelerate business digitisation and improve collaboration between employees. This is a far cry from when Mr Chan first started his business, when he had to work with many providers to get the services his business needed. He also had many issues finding local business service providers that could provide local technical support.

“SMEs have diverse needs and often require local support as they go digital. This includes the ability to empower employees with the innovative and flexible tools they need to connect, create, and collaborate securely on any device – whether they are returning to the office, working from home, or serving customers on the frontlines”, said Mr Yuval Dvir, Global Director, Google Workspace Online Scaled Partnerships, Google Cloud.

“We are confident that SMEs will benefit from the newly launched SME Kick-Starter Bundles – which combine the Google Workspace tools with Exabytes’ full service offerings,“ he concludes.
