iWV boosts managed services strategy across Singapore and Malaysia

17 Jan 17

Singapore-based cloud service and managed service provider ICONZ-Webvisions (iWV) has brought two new sales managers on board for its Singapore and Malaysia bases as the company hopes to grow its managed hosting business in the region.
Terence Yeo will take over as country sales manager for Singapore, while Allen Kam will join the company’s Malaysia offices. Both will report directly to iWV group CEO Albert Wong.

Yeo comes from a position including Oracle Singapore as country sales director and a host of other roles in his 10-year stint at the company. Allen comes from Ricoh, where he was the solution sales head for the Application and Workplace Business Unit.

The company is looking to move its focus to cloud and managed services for the SMB market, including services such as backup, disaster recovery, HRMS, data leak protection and business intelligence.

Yeo says customer experience is important so that customers choose iWV as their managed service provider.

“From procuring our services to receiving Customer Support, we will continue to improve the quality of our services and solutions to provide a seamless and hassle-free interaction for our customers,” Yeo says.

Kam believes iWV has potential to be cemented in its markets by using the 20 years’ experience the Asian-centred cloud managed services has provided.

“Working with the talents in our Team, we will be equipping customers for their transition to Cloud, and for those who are already on Cloud, to help them safeguard their data besides optimizing their IT spending," Kam says.

The company was also awarded the Multi-Tier Cloud Security Singapore Standard 584, world’s first cloud security standard that covers multiple tiers of cloud security.

"We need to continuously evaluate our service offerings and expand our portfolio by adding on useful solutions to meet our clients' requirements. With a line-up of new solutions like WebShield, Enhanced Monitoring and Microsoft Azure, we are confident we can help our customers safeguard their data better while ensuring business continuity," Wong concludes.
