Reza here. As we’ve just entered into 2016, I thought I’d say a few words.
If you recall, we had just launched our cloud-based Slurp! POS in June of 2014 with a target market of F&B outlets within the Klang Valley. We gained some market traction within the few months of 2014 and that had inspired us to continue to push through in the next 12 months. Thankfully, we persevered.
2015 had kept our young team very busy with product development as well as sales & marketing. A lot of things happened during that period - turning Slurp! into a GST-compliant POS was a major task besides an on-going product development to update our software.
We saw Slurp! being adopted at small- and medium-sized, and, at single and chained F&B outlets, at an encouraging pace. Though our focus was within the Klang Valley, we had a couple of outlets in Melaka and Johor that started to use Slurp! Meanwhile, in the third quarter, we began to introduce a reseller program to help us expand further.
When we started Slurp! in 2014, we were a team of five and the number grew to 11 by the end of 2015. A major milestone was hit sometime in the third quarter of 2015 when Slurp! signed up the 100th customer. That got us truly excited.
Our customers continued to inspire us to work hard in making Slurp! the way it is today. We continue to be upbeat about going to the market in 2016. It is an exciting time for us. Our product development will continue to provide updates to help ease burden of restaurant owners and managers.

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all of our customers, partners, members of the media, families and friends who’ve been supporting us since we set foot in the industry. It has been an amazing journey and we wish to continue to make a difference in the POS industry in Malaysia and beyond.
To all of you, I wish you a great success in 2016!
