Malaysia’s Top E-Commerce Merchant Awards is here!

Malaysia’s Top E-Commerce Merchant Awards is here!

The time has come for e-sellers to shine as the very first Top EC merchant will be chosen.

Leonardo DiCaprio waited 12 years to get his Oscar, and he did not take the night for granted. But what about our local e-commerce merchants? In recent years, there have been many homegrown merchants rising to the challenge of doing e-commerce, and we believe that the time has come to recognise their excellence, innovation and creativity!

As such, the Malaysia Top E-Commerce Merchant Awards, the first of its kind in the country, was brought into existence by the Selangor Information Technology and E-Commerce Council (SITEC), with the support of major industry players such as Lazada Malaysia, Lelong.my, Logon.my, Youbeli, 11street, MOLPay, iPay88, Exabytes and eCommerceMILO.

The aim of the competition is to honour and recognise the efforts of the most innovative, creative and well-received e-merchants, helping to boost their brand names through a friendly competition, in turn helping e-merchants find out how they can improve their services and offers.

Since the launch of the competition on Feb 18th, there have been over 30 (and counting!) local e-merchants registered for this prestigious competition. Just as Leonardo DiCaprio did not take the night of the Academy Awards for granted, Malaysia’s e-commerce merchants should not miss this opportunity to showcase their products and services either.

In order to stand a chance to win some sweet cash from that RM25,000 prize pool, the merchant must have achieved at least 200 transactions or have over RM50,000 in sales volume for any single month in 2015.

Additionally, winners will receive other attractive prizes such as trophies, industrial recognition and credibility through official certification by SITEC, co-working spaces in SDCC for 1 year, and mentorship by industry experts.

12 Distinguished Judges Make The Call

Actual judging will be split, with the competition’s distinguished panel of judges holding 50% of the weightage while the remainder 50% of the weightage will come from public voting, representing the targeted customer base of the merchants.

The competition has the strong support of major industry players, with the panel of judges fielding 12 of the e-commerce sector’s pioneers and e-marketplace administrators, each able to provide their own insights into the judging process.

Of the 12, there are names such as Hans-Peter Ressel, the CEO of Lazada Malaysia, Andy Lau, the CEO of Youbeli, Adrian Foong, the GM of Lelong.my, Hoseok Kim, the CEO of 11street, and Bernard Yap, the chief digital officer of Logon.my. These gentlemen represent the most popular e-marketplaces in Malaysia, with the public no strangers to the brands they represent.

Also on the panel of judges are big players in the e-commerce scene, such as the co-founders of eCommerceMILO, Adrian Oh and CK Wong, the founder and CEO of the Exabytes Group of Companies, Chan Kee Siak, Chief Executive of SITEC Yong Kai Ping, and EC Class Manager Goh Boon Peng of SITEC. These gentlemen, being experienced and knowledgeable in e-commerce themselves, will be able to provide valuable insight and offer critique into the processes of the competition’s participants.

At the same time, an online business is not considered functional without a payment gateway. Following that train of thought, payment gateways are represented among the judges as well, with MOLPay CEO Eng Sheng Guan, as well as iPay88 CEO Chan Kok Long.

Nilai U signs agreement with ACCA to offer ACCA Accelerate programme

“The Accounting and Finance degree is one of the more popular programmes at Nilai University (Nilai U). The vast majority of our students in the programme are focussed on becoming certified accountants. This agreement with the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) is designed to fast track their ambitions,” explains Assoc Prof Dr Celis Evelita, Head of Nilai U’s Department of Accounting and Finance. She states that this agreement will allow students to begin and complete their professional qualifications during their varsity years. Previously, students could only start on the ACCA programme after graduation. Under the terms of this agreement Nilai University’s BA (Hons) in Accounting and Finance students will now be able to register with ACCA even before they graduate.

Nilai U’s BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance Programme is an ACCA Accredited programme, as such, graduates of this programme get the full nine paper exemptions from ACCA. Now, with the ACCA Accelerate programme, our students have the option to complete their remaining 5 ACCA papers at the same time they are studying for their degrees. “Many students are very eager to join the work force and not spend any additional time studying,” states Dr Celis. “Many have expressed that completing their ACCA papers at university is much easier than studying part-time whilst juggling work commitments.”

On hand to sign on behalf of ACCA was David Chin, Head of ACCA Malaysia. He had this to say: “Undergraduates under the ACCA Accelerate programme will be able to graduate with both their accounting degree and ACCA qualification certificates in hand. This will make them more competitive in the employment market and be highly sought after by reputable companies both locally and globally.”

Students who sign up for the ACCA Accelerate scheme will be entitled to:

  • Waiver of ACCA’s initial registration fee (worth £79)
  • Free annual subscription fee worth £170 for up to two years after graduation (inclusive of graduation year)
  • Deferred exemption fee payment (up to 24 months after graduation)

These students can also look forward to further support from ACCA via the organising of informative events, meetings with ACCA members, and promotion of the ACCA qualification at Nilai U. Students who successfully register to study ACCA will automatically gain access to ACCA’s online resources including the ACCA Learning Community which connects over 455,000 ACCA students around the world offering support during study and training.

Nilai U’s business programmes are highly popular among school leavers and this move allowing students to fast track their ACCA qualifications is sure to be greeted positively. The Faculty of Business also offers Diplomas in Accounting and Finance as well as Business Administration. Apart from the BA (Hons) in Accounting and Finance, students can get to choose Bachelors of Business Administration (Hons) in the fields of Human Resource Management, Finance, International Business, Marketing and Management.

Nilai U was established in 1997 and is located in the picturesque suburb of Putra Nilai, just 15-minutes from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport. All of its programmes are approved by the Ministry of Higher Education and is rated as ‘Setara 5 / Excellent’ by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency. For more information, please go to www.nilai.edu.my or call 06-8502308.

Nilai U’s Accounting and Finance degree students can now opt to complete the ACCA examinations whilst studying for their degree via the Accelerate programme. (L-R) “Prof. Dr. Sivakumar Velayutham (Nilai U Dean of Faculty of Business), Prof Dato’ Dr Sothi Rachagan (Nilai U Vice-Chancellor), David Chin (Head of ACCA Malaysia) and Hishamuddin Jalil (Head of Strategic Partnerships and Learning, ACCA).

Prof Dato’ Dr Sothi Rachagan (Nilai U Vice-Chancellor) and David Chin (Head of ACCA Malaysia) formalises the agreement to offer the Accelerate programme to the university’s accounting and finance degree students.

GS15-4® – World’s Most Bioavailable Ginseng Produced by Biotechnology

GS15-4® – World’s Most Bioavailable Ginseng Produced by Biotechnology

Ginseng is the world’s most powerful adaptogenic herb. It assists your body to adapt and adjust to maintain balance and optimal health.

The ginseng root contains ginsenosides – the main active ingredients responsible for the herb’s medicinal properties. Among the various ginseng types, Korean ginseng is the most efficacious with 36 types of ginsenosides. American ginseng has only 13.

However, ginsenosides are large molecules that need to be broken down by the gut into smaller molecules like compound K (CK) and protopanaxadiol (PPD) before it can be absorbed effectively by the body.

This varies between individuals. Most people do not fully metabolise ginseng. This is more so with the elderly who truly need the benefits of ginseng. Poor absorption leads to low efficacy.

20 years of clinical studies have shown Korean ginseng to have the following health benefits:

  • Aids in managing stress
  • Purifies the blood of toxins
  • Improves blood quality
  • Assists in balancing blood sugar
  • Mental clarity and focus
  • Stimulates and supports digestion
  • Supports strong immune system
  • Helps to alkalize your body
  • Helps to increase energy and vitality
  • Helps in male erectile dysfunction

Recent advancement in biotechnology has enabled ILHWA – the world leader in ginseng research – to improve the amount of ginseng that is absorbed and the speed at which is it absorbed.

In fact, ILHWA has developed a patented and pre-digested Korean ginseng extract called GS15-4 using a breakthrough enzyme fermentation technology. This had lead to the production of a completely balanced ginseng extract in its end-stage metabolite form (Compound K).
