Transformational Strategies Driving Business Agility & Value-Add in Shared Services

leave a comment »

SINGAPORE /PRNewswire/ — Asia’s #1 Shared Services & Outsourcing event returns for the 19th year in Singapore on 15-16 November 2016. Against the backdrop of economic uncertainties and tightening market competition, the 19th Shared Services & Outsourcing Week (SSOW) Asia, which will be held by SSON, a division of IQPC, will gather shared services leaders in the region to explore and exchange transformational strategies driving business agility and value-add in their organisations.

According to the latest research from Shared Services & Outsourcing Network (SSON), more than 80% of shared services organisations in Asia are committed to delivering value beyond costs savings. In particular, they are turning to robotics process automation and data analytics to fast-track their business targets.

“Under current market conditions, shared services and outsourcing (SS&O) leaders in Asia are under pressure to do more with less. The good news is – the industry has never been more ready to make the transition from cost-savings to value-add. Advancements in new technologies such as robotics process automation and data analytics are key enablers in the redeployment of shared services resources and talent to focus on value-added work,” said Ann Liu, Asia deputy divisional director at SSON. 60% of respondents in SSON’s Mega Trends Report 2016 ranked robotics process automation as a radical game-changer and 90% believed data analytics to be critical to improving business decision-making.

While it is still early stages in Asia when it comes to robotics process automation and data analytics uptake, SSON predicts that this scenario is likely to change. On that note, Ann Liu further said, “If you look closely at the speed of current adoption and the results thus far, the prospects for future applications are immense. Robotics process automation and data analytics will lead to process improvement and that in turn, will bring shared services closer to supporting their organisations as critical business partners.”

SSON’s flagship SSOW Asia 2016 will shine the spotlight on robotics process automation and data analytics implementation. In addition, the event will feature key discussions on priorities such as Talent Management, Cost-Control, Shared Services Governance, Customer Experience and Outsourcing. Do not miss this opportunity to network with more than 400 SS&O senior leaders, forge new relationships and equip yourself with the knowledge and skills to drive continuous success in your organisation.

“With more than 100,000 senior level SS&O members, we at SSON, have always prided ourselves on being the best platform for industry practitioners to keep their pulse on the industry. This year is no exception. Let SSOW 2016 be your guide in formulating your SS&O roadmap for 2017 and beyond,” said Ann Liu.

Affordable Data Analytics and Management Services for SMEs

leave a comment »

SINGAPORE /PRNewswire/ — Cloud hosting specialist ICONZ-Webvisions (iWV) and business analytics experts ClayOPS have announced a new partnership that will give SMEs in Singapore greater access to affordable business analytics tools and services.

While leveraging on data can revolutionalise companies’ operations and improve their business strategies, it is often beyond the budget of smaller companies. These small- and medium-sized firms cannot afford the technology and expertise involved. The tie-up between iWV and ClayOPS, however, will allow these SMEs to tap into the specialised business analytics tools developed by ClayOPS, a highly successful Singapore start-up, through the access provided by iWV, a large-scale provider of cloud-hosting services.

The tie-up not only gives SMEs access to a one-stop suite of specialised yet affordable services, but will also help them join in the national push to turn Singapore into a Smart Nation. Part of this vision sees companies mining and analysing data from their operations so that they can maximise their efficiency and spot opportunities for growth. Capturing data through the use of sensors, then analysing them, can give data-driven firms an advantage in business operations and strategic decisions.

“The ability to slice and cut data, and pinpoint areas of improvement in a fast and cost-effective way is highly desirable for business owners and leaders,” says Albert Wong, Group CEO of iWV. “Leveraging on business analytics used to be only available to large enterprises because of the exorbitant costs and efforts involved. Today, with our partnership with ClayOPS, we can empower our clients with the ability to analyse their data via solutions that are simple and affordable.”

Matthew Choo, Director, Business & Consumer Insights, of ClayOPS, notes that MNCs and SMEs face similar challenges and opportunities when it comes to mining and analysing data. But SMEs are often placed at a disadvantage because they do not have the same access to data analytics that larger companies have, or are unaware of the value of these services.

“ClayOPS is in the business of helping clients understand and use their data better,” he says. “We are able to take our expertise, experience and technology we built for MNCs and make them easily available for SMEs. But ClayOPS being a local SME ourselves, we lack the resources and expertise to reach out widely to SMEs. With the iWV team, we share the same business direction and have the necessary complementary skill sets to help firms be better at using data.”

Businesses Can Now Access Mongolia’s Market Faster and Easier with DHL

leave a comment »

— Mongolia’s exports and domestic consumption are returning to rapid growth as its economy recovers from mining downturn
— New time-saving road and multimodal services connect Mongolia to its main European and US trading partners with cost-effective, agile shipping

ULAANBAATAR, Mongolia /PRNewswire/ — DHL Global Forwarding, the leading international provider of air, sea and road freight services, today announced the launch of its new road and multimodal freight services connecting Mongolia to its major European and US trading partners in less than 20 days. The services support both SMEs and larger enterprises in industries ranging from mining and automotive to retail, fashion and perishables seeking to capitalize on Mongolia’s return to rapid economic growth and its transition from commodities to value-added exports.

Businesses in European nations stand to benefit from DHL’s new road freight service to and from Mongolia which connects to continental Europe through Russia and Belarus under 20 days. The new service offers both Full Truck Load (FTL) and Less-than-Truck Load (LTL) options to support different business sizes, ideal for small cargo volumes and initial market testing. The service will support the movement of imported foreign goods such as furniture, medicines and wine, and exports like mining spare parts, cashmere products and all terrain bikes.

“Mongolia’s economy is rebounding from the mining downturn, further building on its status as the world’s second-largest cashmere producer[1] and a food and agricultural export hub[2],” said Kelvin Leung, CEO, DHL Global Forwarding Asia Pacific. “With Mongolian businesses gaining a growing slice of global market share, supported by an increasingly solid network of regional Free Trade Agreements[3][4], Mongolia’s dominant trading partners also stand to gain from increases in domestic consumption of foreign goods.”

Mongolia also counts the US as one of its top five sources of imports[5] with cars and food as key imports. DHL’s new multimodal service provides Full Container Load (FCL) and Less-than-Container Load (LCL) shipping with transit time as few as 18 days. The service moves cargo such as watches, coffee machines and motorcycles from the US to South Korea by air, via ocean freight to China, and through rail and road into Mongolia, offering a balance between cost-efficiency and speed to businesses in the US seeking to expand their reach to Mongolia’s consumers. The service also offers Mongolia businesses exporting goods like aviation spare parts, camel wool and rally cars access to the US market.

“The new road freight and multimodal services provide both small businesses and large enterprises with an especially cost-effective and timely way of testing demand and establishing consistent trade between both markets,” said Charles Kaufmann, CEO, North Asia and Head, Value Added Services, DHL Global Forwarding Asia Pacific. “As the only international logistics provider with a local presence in Mongolia, DHL enables overseas exporters to gain a head-start in accessing the ‘Wolf Economy’ as it continues its path to the front of the pack.”

New Silkroutes Group Forms JV to Provide Bespoke Risk Management and Private Security Services in Asia

leave a comment »

SINGAPORE /PRNewswire/ — New Silkroutes Group Limited (“NSG” or “the Group”) has formed a joint venture with the owners of London-based consulting firm Rubeus Limited (“Rubeus”) to provide bespoke solutions for risk and security-related matters in Asia, adding to its portfolio of businesses following its exit from the SGX Watchlist in November 2014.

Incorporated in September 2011, Rubeus offers risk management solutions to corporations, government agencies and ultra-high-net-worth families globally. Its scope of work includes providing insights into entering emerging or frontier markets, monitoring on-site conditions throughout the life cycle of an investment and the operational management of projects, as well as offering crisis management services and advice on the security of critical national infrastructure. Its clients include oil, gas and mining companies, private banks, hedge funds, maritime firms, the media, as well as family offices.

Rubeus was founded by Mr John Davidson and his partner, Dr Jessica Lincoln. Mr Davidson is a former British Special Forces soldier with over 25 years of experience in high-intensity crisis situations. He has worked with governments to develop training programmes to enhance security, and has been involved in ending the operations of certain groups in armed conflicts.

Dr Lincoln is an expert in open-source intelligence and a former member of staff at the Department of War Studies in King’s College London and the Defence Studies Department at the UK’s Joint Services Command and Staff College. She and Mr Davidson are supported by a team of experts in fields such as technology and research.

The Singapore-based joint venture, Rubeus Silk Pte Ltd (“Rubeus Silk”), is 51% owned by NSG. Mr Davidson and Dr Lincoln own the remaining 49%. The new partnership will seek to expand across Asia and develop local expertise in each of the markets it sets foot in.

“Rubeus exists to protect people and assets. In Asia, we believe our services will be useful in helping companies, ultra-high-net-worth families and their businesses better manage and safeguard their resources and investments,” said Mr Davidson.

Dr Goh Jin Hian, Group Chief Executive Officer of NSG, said: “Rubeus Silk is the latest addition to NSG’s security and governance business, which has so far centred on big data analytics and enterprise software solutions. The joint venture will not only widen the scope of this business but also complement NSG’s other divisions.”

“For example, as our oil and gas business grows, we eventually want to get involved in activities beyond trading. These could include managing and owning oil storage facilities in Asia and Europe. Rubeus’ experience in evaluating energy assets, particularly in frontier markets, will be invaluable.”

NSG currently gets most of its revenue from oil and gas trading. It also has a joint venture with the government of Malta to develop the Southern European island into an energy trading hub between Europe and Asia.

Digiland Pte Ltd, the Group’s wholly owned technology arm, provides consultancy services and solutions in data analytics, cloud-based e-government services, and IT infrastructure for the management of public housing, real estate and facilities.
