Fujitsu Malaysia Aims to Grow ERP Business 30% Year on Year
Fujitsu (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. today introduced to the local market GLOVIAG2, an enterprise resource planning (ERP) software especially useful to manufacturing organisations.
Ideal for a variety of small-to-large businesses, including Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 suppliers to the automotive, aerospace, defense and electronics industries, GLOVIAG2 is well known for its depth of functionality, strong ROI and lower cost-of-ownership.
In Malaysia, 97% of businesses are small to medium enterprises, and these SMEs are responsible for 36% of the country’s GDP. With the Malaysian government’s 2012-2020 SME Masterplan’s goal of having SMEs contribute 41% to the national GDP by 2020, it’s clear that these organisations are a key component in becoming a high income nation. As they grow, these businesses will need to manage increasingly more complex and urgent needs. For manufacturers it is all about demand forecasting, responding to customer demands quickly and accurately and gaining visibility into entire operations to synchronize supply chain while cutting costs,” said Philip Soh, CEO, Fujitsu Malaysia.
“With this, the opportunity for a tailor-designed, cost-effective and simple to use business management software such as GLOVIAG2 is tremendous. In addition, with Fujitsu actively growing its business outside Japan, we will be making an especially strong case for GLOVIAG2 to our customers here. We are confident of achieving a 30% year-on-year growth for our ERP segment over the next two years,” he added.
The two subsidiaries of the Dutch Hittech Group, namely, Hittech Assembly Malaysia and Hittech Trade Malaysia have been using GLOVIAG2 since January 2015. Hittech Group is a full service systems supplier based in Netherlands, which acts as a 1st tier supplier and partner of OEM companies.
Koen Davina, General Manager and Director of Hittech Assembly Malaysia, Hittech Trade Malaysia and Hittech Wemac said: “GLOVIAG2 is highly recommended in our industry for excellent planning capabilities and we were delighted to have been able to implement the solution without any necessary customization. The recurring costs with GLOVIAG2 are low, and since it has built-in quality control points, we have better control over our product quality.”
“Prior to GLOVIAG2, we had some challenges with exercising a full control of the accounts, recording of the stock levels and internal stock movements, and without Glovia G2, our old system would not have been able to support our significant growth. We are positive that GLOVIAG2 will continue to support us efficiently in our quest to grow our revenues by 300% by the end of 2017.”
FUJITSU GLOVIA, INC has been serving customers for over four decades.

GLOVIAG2 is built on open technology mobile framework and is therefore available not only on-premises, and partner-hosted solutions but also on-demand via web browser or via any Internet-enabled mobile device. With its rich and deep functionality the solution can be either deployed as end to end solution or it could coexists with other systems using its “out of the box” integration capabilities, thus preserving the legacy investments if necessary.
