Radicare Eyes More Opportunities In Middle East

radicareKUALA LUMPUR, Nov 9 (Bernama) Realmild Facilities Management Sdn Bhd through its subsidiary Radicare (M) Sdn Bhd is set to explore more opportunities in the Middle East.

The company, which provides integrated facilities management (IFM), has carved its name in the Asian market and is now trying to strengthen its position in the Middle East with a project in hand in Dubai.

“The market demand for IFM in the Middle East is very encouraging and we are looking forward to a better future there,” said Realmild’s general manager for information technology and procurement, Hidaya Yahaya.

He said the Dubai project contributed about RM10 million annually to Radicare’s turnover of RM400 million.

He was speaking to reporters after a signing ceremony between Realmild and SAS Malaysia on strategic planning and budgeting for growth.

SAS Malaysia, a business intelligence and analytical software service provider, will help Radicare to reduce the cost of budget preparation through automating non-productive tasks like data consolidation and re-keying data.

Hidaya said the company aimed to save 10 per cent annually from its operational cost from the agreement with SAS Malaysia.

“This signing is only the first phase which covers the financial and budgeting sector. There will be another phase which covers operation management and human resources by end of this year,” he said.

Hidaya said for the second phase, the management was looking at the proposals from various companies, including SAS Malaysia.

He said the company’s investment for the first phase was around RM250,000 while the investment for the second phase had not been finalised yet.

Realmild is an 18-year-old investment holding company of Radicare and Labuan Shipyard. Its core operations are integrated healthcare facilities management, heavy engineering, maintenance and supply of defence technologies, logistics and capital development.
