SAP GRC and security company Turnkey Consulting is continuing its global expansion by opening a new office in Malaysia. The move is in response to client demand, as key customers open offshore hubs and migrate their IT operations to the region.
“We offer direct value to our clients through having consultants located in the areas in which they have their main operations,” explains Richard Hunt, managing director of Turnkey Consulting. “Therefore, as they open up in new regions, it is critical that we follow suite to maintain our level of service.”
Based in Kuala Lumpur, Turnkey Consulting Malaysia Sdn will be run as a joint venture with Mantran Consulting, a Singapore-based SAP and information security specialist with whom Turnkey Consulting has collaborated on previous projects. Customers will benefit from the expertise of local Mantran consultants who will work under the Turnkey brand.
Hunt continues: “Working with Mantran is the ideal way to expand our operations. The company already has a solid client base and its core values of offering technical ability combined with business acumen and a high level of customer service are aligned to our own. The strong capability of its current consultants is also a key asset, and we plan to develop this further as we recruit from the strong talent pool based in the region.”
Barun Kumar, the managing director of Mantran Consulting will be managing director of the new Malaysian entity. He comments: “Working under the Turnkey brand is an opportunity to expand our global horizons and develop the team. The complementary values of the two companies ensures that we can do this while maintaining our focus on expertise and commitment to quality, which have been an integral part of our growth to date.”
To cement its presence in the region, Turnkey Consulting is attending the GRC 2013 conference in Singapore (3-5 September 2013), where, together with customers and partners, it will give the following presentations:
