Developed by Asian Business Software Solutions Sdn Bhd (ABSS), a subsidiary of Censof Holdings Bhd, the software is a user-friendly, cloud-based, with no accounting knowledge needed to operate.

Conway said the Malaysian-developed software is able to generate reports and tax reports among others, with users only needing to key-in the sales and purchase figures.

He said ABSS will introduce Financio in Singapore by June, followed by Hong Kong, the Philippines and Indonesia in September.

ABSS chief technology officer (Cloud) Jye Eng said Financio also allow businesses to connect with one another, just like adding friends on social media.

“We realised the younger generation is becoming the main driver of the country’s economy, they tend to be more IT savvy, willing to try new things, and want to have a clearer picture of their business’ finance and access data anywhere they go,” said Eng.

Users can try Financio for free or purchase the premium version which features a full function of the software including the Malaysian GST support and bigger file storage with a low entry cost of RM32.95 per month of RM329.50 for a year.

ABSS & MINT PAYMENTS LAUNCH “ABSS CLICK TO PAY” IN SINGAPORE TO GIVE SMEs AN EDGE

ABSS and Mint Payments launch ABSS Click to Pay in Singapore – a comprehensive e-invoicing and payments solution aimed at Singapore SMEs.

The solution is now available in Singapore and is due for release in Malaysia next; product to be out across South East Asia.

ABSS and Mint Payments see exponential growth and potential in eCommerce, online and mobile payments in South East Asia.

Asia Business Solution Software Solutions (ABSS), a leading business software provider and Mint Payments, an Australian payments processing technology provider, today announced the launch of ABSS Click to Pay, a comprehensive e-invoicing and payments solution targeted at Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs).

ABSS Click to Pay provides SMEs with a safe and secure online card payment channel for paying invoices. The solution enables SMEs to click through directly from an e-invoice, enter credit/debit card or bank account transfer details, submit their payment online and receive a tax receipt instantly. This also allows direct card transactions to be processed in real-time, allowing SMEs to effectively manage their cash flow, reducing invoice processing costs and improving the invoice to payment process to achieve cost efficiency.

The launch follows a partnership agreement between ABSS and Mint Payments in March. Under this agreement, ABSS will distribute, license and integrate Mint Payments’ omni-channel payment solutions with ABSS’ MYOB branded SME business software products. Mint Payments’ partnership with NETS also enabled ABSS to be connected to NETS’ extensive payment processing network.

“More than 300,000 SMEs across Asia are already using MYOB as their accounting software of choice and it is the number #1 accounting software for SMEs in Singapore. Our partnership with Mint has enabled ABSS Click to Pay to be integrated with our MYOB software, which aims to help all SME businesses in Asia significantly increase business profitability by receiving payment faster,” Paul Conway, CEO, ABSS

ABSS Click to Pay is currently available in Singapore and will be rolled out across Southeast Asia. The collaboration between Mint Payments, ABSS and NETS seeks to capitalise on the strong growth of eCommerce as well as online and mobile payments. Southeast Asia is also slowly witnessing the shift towards electronic payments, in replacement of cash and cheques, from consumers to corporations.

“With this collaboration, we are delivering a comprehensive omni-channel payment solution to SMEs in Singapore and the wider Asia-Pacific region. ABSS Click to Pay marks the first of a full suite of products that will be made available. Moving forward, we are targeting to launch Singapore’s first unified mPOS solution with NETS, which will also be made available to all ABSS’ merchants,” Mint Payments CEO Alex Teoh

“Being a trusted payment partner for merchants in Singapore, this collaboration with Mint and ABSS enables NETS to deliver omni-channel payment solutions that boost business productivity and efficiency for our merchants. This completes the final leg for merchants to automatically link payments into their business management system in a seamless manner.” Jeffrey Goh NETS CEO

ABSS appointed as new Google Premier Partner in Singapore & Malaysia

Asian Business Software Solutions Pte Ltd (ABSS), the exclusive developer and distributor of MYOB branded software for Asia has been appointed as the new Google AdWords Premier SME Partner for Singapore and Malaysia on 1st April 2016.

Google works with only a limited number of Premier SME Partners (PSP) in each market, who show proven ability to help bring Google’s online advertising solutions to small and medium sized businesses (SMEs). Successful partners are chosen for their large existing customer base of SMEs, extensive phone and field based sales force, commitment to provide excellent customer service and an existing operational infrastructure to service thousands of customers.

“The Google AdWords Premier SME Partner Program was created to help small- and medium-sized businesses who don’t have the time or resources to manage their advertising campaigns,”

“Our PSPs like Asian Business Software Solutions (ABSS) offer expertise, experience, and end-to-end customer service so business owners can focus on running their businesses.” Matt Heller Head of Google Channel Sales Southeast Asia

The Premier SME Partner program is the highest level of certification by Google. Partners are highly qualified and have direct access to Google. It takes ongoing, dedicated time to manage advertising on Adwords which SMEs simply don’t have the time or expertise to do themselves. Google Premier SME Partners know online marketing. They provide SME’s with local knowledge, product expertise, and access to Google’s technology to create high-performing advertisements so you can focus on what you know best, your business.

“ABSS are very proud to have been selected as Google’s newest AdWords Premier SME Partner in Singapore and Malaysia, which is a testament to our continued growth and success across Asia. Over 300,000 SMEs throughout Asia are actively using our MYOB branded software to simplify their accounting.

ABSS Partners with Mint Payments to capitalise on ePayments trend

Asian Business Software Solutions Pte. Ltd. (ABSS), a subsidiary of Censof Holdings Berhad (Censof) has entered into a master services agreement with Mint Payments Limited (Mint) a company listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), to distribute, license and integrate Mint’s omni-channel payment solutions with ABSS’ MYOB branded SME software products.

The exclusive agreement has an initial term of three years and will cover 11 countries throughout South East Asia. Currently, ABSS’s primary markets are Singapore and Malaysia where they are the leading accounting solutions provider with more than 200,000 business customers.

The partnership between ABSS and MINT capitalises on the increasing trend of digitalisation and computerisation in the Asian market and the developing appetite for eCommerce and mobile payments. The region is experiencing a regulatory and structural change to displace cash and increase payment card acceptance, demonstrated by Bank Negara’s target of 800,000 card terminals by 2020 as well as the adoption of Chip and Pin by 1 January 2017. This partnership is the first initiative in the South East Asian market to take advantage of the structural change and places Mint and ABSS’ MYOB customers in a prime position to realize opportunities in the region.

“I believe this is a step in the right direction for ABSS. This partnership will add to our portfolio of products and will enable them to deliver a wide range of business solutions using innovative technology to more than 330,000 businesses and accounting practices in the Asia region. Mint is the leading payments provider and we are delighted to work hand-in-hand with them to transform and modernise business management systems for our customers,” Mr. Ameer Shaik Mydin Managing Director of Censof Holdings Berhad

“Following on from our partnership with MYOB in Australia and New Zealand, we are delighted to have signed with ABSS, the developer of MYOB branded SME software products in the South East Asian region. We look forward to delivering the first comprehensive omni channel payment solution to its leading network of small and medium sized business in the region. This agreement with ABSS is an excellent first step for Mint as we continue to execute our strategy, which includes expanding into key markets in Asia.” Andrew Teoh Mint’s Executive Director and Head of International Business,

“As we have witnessed in Australia and New Zealand, chip and PIN as well as contactless payments are becoming a necessity. With the rise of physical card and electronic payments in the region, we see similar adoption and growth rates experienced in Australia, being reflected in these South East Asian markets, however, the market size and opportunity will be far greater. The region is expected to account for approximately 20% of mPOS devices and transaction spend worldwide by the next five years, making it the right time for Mint to pursue these markets aggressively.” Alex Teoh Mint’s CEO
