Sabah Ports Sdn Bhd (SPSB) chose Sage to better streamline its operations, improve data management and insights and budgetary costs analysis to drive business growth. Previously, SPSB were looking to upgrade their ability to support multi-dimensional analysis by securing real-time data management and analysis that is needed for faster decision-making. The company was also keen to improve system support within the organisation to support SPSB’s plans for expansion.

Apart from that, SPSB will also be able to simply its operations and provide makers with a single view of company financials, sales programmes and the status of its supply chain.
Datuk Karim Hj Bujang, Chairman of SPSB, said: “Real-time business insights and visibility into our operations is critical to Sabah Ports’ expansion, to help us increase our efficiency, and maintain our relevance and competitive edge. The Sage X3 solution, especially the multi-dimensional analysis functionality, collects real-time information on all aspects of our business and provides us with a 360-degree view of our business across all our ports, helping us quickly identify problems and make informed decisions.”
