A Bruneian software firm which has developed a fully customisable ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) application for SMEs was recently honoured in Geneva.
Nuara Group was praised at the 2019 World Summit for Information Society (WSIS) Awards last week for helping small businesses in their digital transformation through the company’s E2 (Effective and Efficient) project.
Nuara E2’s modular nature, which includes features that range from HR Management to inventory to Sales and Order Management, enables companies to streamline their business operations by providing them with a one-stop solution.
The project was shortlisted under WSIS’ ICT Applications/E-Business category.
Making ERP solutions available to all
Nuara Group’s managing director Barbora Grexa said that although digital technologies have become a crucial feature in today’s business world, most ERP solutions in the market are non-customisable and expensive for SMEs to afford.
“We believe E2 can bridge that gap with full customisability of our modules with in-person and on-site consultation,” Grexa said at the MSME Festival two weeks ago.
“We are a pioneer with this sales model because we’ve identified our customers’ desire for digital yet personalised service,” she added.
Nuara Group was one of several Bruneian firms featured in an ASEAN secretariat publication highlighting 50 regional MSMEs that have successfully digitalised their business models.
The company said digitisation has helped increase its revenue by 400% over the past six months.
The WSIS Prize is a unique international contest that evaluates and recognises individuals, governments, civil society, local, regional and international agencies, research institutions and private-sector companies for outstanding success in implementing development oriented strategies that leverage the power of ICT as an enabler of the development.
The submission phase, which began from July 2 to December 5 last year, received a record number of 1,140 submissions, out of which 1,062 exceptional projects were nominated for WSIS Prizes 2019.
Over two million votes were cast for these projects from December 21, 2018 to February 10, 2019 and following a comprehensive review by the Expert Group, 90 extraordinary ICT-related projects and initiatives were named as ‘champions’. 18 winners were awarded for each of the 18 categories at the WSIS Prize 2019 Ceremony.
