Malaysia’s Momentum Commerce ties up with Anchanto 

Malaysia-based e-commerce solution provider Momentum Commerce announced on Wednesday that it has partnered with Anchanto, a SaaS-based B2B software company, to support its multi-channel backend operation.

Through the collaboration, Momentum Commerce will be using Anchanto’s multichannel eCommerce management solution called SelluSeller to help brands manage their operations across different platforms.

Momentum Commerce, which was established by the co-founder of Lazada Hans Peter Ressel and former Senheng Malaysia head of e-commerce Eddy Yap, also will help Anchanto’s customers to scale up regionally, in which some of the markets are still untapped.

Anchanto has a huge ecosystem of over 7,000 customers or brands across the region.

Singapore-headquartered cloud-based platform Deskera announced a strategic partnership with NAVER Business Platform (NBP), the cloud and IT infrastructure subsidiary of South Korea’s NAVER Corporation, to offer cloud services for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) across Southeast Asia.

The joint announcement was held at an annual RISE 2019 Conference in Hong Kong.

Through the collaboration, Deskera will incorporate NBP’s cloud service platform to its technology, which will support SMEs in the region to host their data securely and efficiently.

The partnership between both companies will also enable SMEs to create a sustainable value across their digital transformation efforts.
