We are in a time where there is an increasing need to mobilise the workforce, virtualise workspaces and digitalise the customer interface, and today's event can help drive that mind-set change," said Shanti Jusnita Johari, Maxis' head of Enterprise Marketing & Mobility.

Kevin Lee, Maxis' head of SME said, "This event was all about inspiring new ways of working in a digitalised environment. SMEs are a driving force in the economy and it is critical that they have access to the right tools and knowledge in growing their businesses in such an environment."
