He said the promotional packages are part of efforts by the company to increase digitalisation among SMEs, which unfortunately have been adversely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
“DNeX is well positioned as the digital trade facilitation partner for businesses including SMEs and Government agencies towards improvements and efficiency in trade processes as well as ease of doing business in the country. We hope that the promotional packages can bring about some relief in terms of cost savings and cost optimisation of affected businesses,” he added.
