After the financial lifeline thrown its way courtesy of the 1 Malaysia email project a.k.a myemail in April last year (and the controversy that ensued), Tricubes Berhad can look forward to start 2012 on a positive note: it has been awarded a RM6 million contract by the Home Ministry to maintain the Royal Malaysian Police’s (PDRM) mobile systems for two years starting January 1.
The project, which will be to maintain PDRM’s Enhanced Mobile Management System (EMMS) and Mobile Card Acceptance Device (MCAD) will be spearheaded by TricubesNCR JV Sdn Bhd, which is 70% owned by Tricubes Berhad.
Tricubes, which was appointed as PDRM’s traffic fines collection agent last November expects the award ”to contribute positively to the earnings and net assets per share of the group from the financial year ending 31 March 2012 and is not expected to have any material effect on the gearing of the company”, as stated in a filing to Bursa Malaysia today.
The Malaysian Insider reveals that Tricubes has also approached the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), the Road Transport Department (JPN) and the Employees Provident Fund (EPF) to use its controversial myemail billing system and will begin pilot trials soon.
