Kuala Lumpur, 26 June 2017 – Curlec is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Cheng & Co that will allow Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) to tap into the previously hard to access Direct Debit system. With the recently signed MoU, Cheng & Co’s client base can now enjoy the benefits of Curlec’s ability to automate payment collections.
This partnership is the latest tie up that Cheng & Co have made with global and regional FinTech players, with the cloud-based accounting company, Xero, and P2P lenders, Funding Societies, examples of this.
Tom Wong, CEO of Cheng & Co stated that the partnership with Curlec would help their clients to “accelerate their business growth and opportunities”. In addition to the partnership, Cheng & Co’s associate company, Indah Secretarial, will become users of the Curlec system to help with their payment collections.
“Digital transformation is promising to deliver value to enterprises of all sizes. As businesses expand and grow, it is imperative for businesses to evolve and adapt to technology advances in order to keep pace with the changing global business landscape,” explained Wong.
Zac Liew, co-founder and CEO of Curlec, added that he was delighted to be working with Cheng & Co.
“Existing Direct Debit solutions have been a payment method that has been traditionally restricted to large corporates who have the resources to facilitate it. With Cheng & Co being one of the largest professional services firms in Malaysia, we now have the opportunity to bring this underutilised payment solution to the masses. I believe that this will be a formidable partnership and together we can offer a best in class solution to their customers,” said Liew.
This strategic partnership is in line with Curlec’s mission to make Direct Debit accessible to businesses of all sizes in Malaysia. If you would like to take full advantage of Curlec’s collaboration with Cheng & Co, please leave your contact details below.
