Commenting on this milestone achievement, Dato’ Ghazali said, “TM has embarked on a journey towards becoming an integrated ICT player. We are moving beyond connectivity and instead of promoting individual products we work with closely with enterprises to offer end-to-end solutions that would enhance their business operations. “Business Made Easier” is an aspiration that we are committed to as the preferred communications and complete solutions partner to Enterprises in Malaysia. The Hospitality Entertainment Solution is our latest offering and we are pleased to inform that 35 hotels in Malaysia have already subscribed to TM’s Hospitality Entertainment Solution and KPJ Rawang is the very first hospital and enterprise customer to subscribe to the service.
