SPSB adopts Sage to support expansion plans


KUALA LUMPUR: Sabah Ports Sdn Bhd (SPSB) has adopted Sage, an integrated accounting, payment and banking solution to better streamline operations, improve data management and insights, and budgetary costs analysis to drive business growth.

SPSB, a subsidiary of Suria Capital Holdings Bhd, has embarked on an expansion plan to upgrade port capabilities to handle 1.21 million Twenty-Foot Equivalent Unit (TEUs) during the first phase of development.

Upon completion of the port expansion, SPSB would be handling up to 3.76 million TEUs.

SPSB said in a statement that the adoption of Sage would assist the port operator in securing real-time data management and analysis, needed for faster decision-making.

Chairman, Datuk Karim Bujang said real-time business insights and visibility are critical for Sabah Ports’ expansion, as it could collect real-time information on all aspects of the business and assist the company in quickly identifying problems and making informed decisions.

As the main port operator in the state, SPSB has delivered maritime logistics, access and opportunities for Sabah, along with bringing the world to Malaysia’s shores.

The company manages eight ports located strategically on both the west and east coasts of the state, including the Sapangar Bay Container Port, which will be developed into a transhipment hub. — Bernama
