An initiative to provide service to allow small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to consult chief technology officers (CTO) for free, or at an affordable cost in subscription basic, will be launched next month (May 2022) as part of plans to help businesses go digital.

In the scheme, for SMEs that cannot afford an in-house technology chief whose average salary range from RM 15,000 to RM 50,000 in the local market within SMEs, CTOaaS will be an ideal solution whose subscription is as low as RM 1,500 per month.

CTO as a service (CaaS) stands for the business advisory and technical implementation services provided by a Chief Technology Officer for a start-up. A CTO is an executive that meets a start-up’s technical needs and coordinates its research and development; then assesses both the short and long-term requirements of your business and leverages investment to reach cost-effectiveness.

Many start-ups and small companies looking for affordable technology consultation because they do not know where to start when they want to digitalize but can’t get any that suits their budget, said Mr. Jay Chong, group managing director of Jagole.

Some firms use CTO-as-a-Service to avoid the time-consuming process of trial and error when trying to digitalize, he added.

Over the past 2 years with about 100 clienteles, one of the most challenging missions was to create a “Farm to Table” journey for plantation Corp, from there we managed to develop their e-store as well as successfully developed a fruit directory that connects more than 2,000 fruit sellers that is now the Largest Fruits Directory in Malaysia –

Jagole also developed simplify tools such as ss88 (“” + “linktree” – URL Shortener + Bio Page), myWinet (Community News Platform), TechPedia (Encyclopedia for Digital Transformation Success Story; And providing Dedicated and Managed WordPress Hosting & Infrastructure.

The company’s current capacity can support up to 50 subscriptions now and actively invite tech partners to participate in the scheme to build up the talents pool.
