UEM Edgenta Bhd has unveiled the Edgenta of the Future 2025 vision which outlines its aspirations to grow its healthcare support, infrastructure and technology business segments.
The vision contains a two-pronged strategy which is: (i) to protect and preserve current contracts and partnerships with long-term clients; and (ii) to spearhead its next phase of growth through new product and market expansion, as well as introduce new business models and revenue streams.
“The impact of the pandemic last year on our diversified businesses in the region have been carefully studied, serving us with more knowledge and clear datasets to remain agile and responsive,” commented the company’s managing director and CEO Syahrunizam Samsudin.
“In this new operating environment, we will re-position our business and grow sustainably to achieve our value creation promise through clear and differentiated solutions offered to the market.”
According to Syahrunizam, UEM Edgenta’s first wave of products will focus on digital healthcare to provide the market with convenient access to primary healthcare services and follow through later this year with more tech-enabled and cloud-based solutions for the property and infrastructure segments.
The company’s healthcare support and infrastructure services divisions will be productising currently available technology solutions, including among others, UETrack and Road Asset Management System (RAMS).
“These in-house-developed solutions are results of systemic innovation undertaken by its engineers and data scientists which are ready to be commercialised and potentially applied into other segments of the asset, facilities and infrastructure services industry,” explained Syahrunizam.
On its future technology offerings in the Malaysian integrated facilities management (IFM) sector, UEM Edgenta hopes to make a foray into new markets, particularly in the Middle East where it aims to secure partnerships with reputable local IFM players in the healthcare industry.
In this region, UEM Edgenta is currently present in Dubai, through Operon Middle East, a subsidiary of its property & facility solutions division.
Elsewhere, Syahrunizam said the company’s thrust into Sarawak, Sabah and Kalimantan will lead UEM Edgenta’s regional expansion with Opus Consultants providing an existing beachhead through its involvement in the Sarawak Coastal & Second Trunk Road Project.
“The company will participate in future infrastructure works available in this market as well as explore opportunities in Peninsular Malaysia’s highways and roads infrastructure segment,” he added. – Mar 1, 2021
