Quest AIMS Signing Ceremony - TeleVAS and Yayasan Universiti Multimedia

Dublin technology company Quest Computing has won a major contract with a prestigious Malaysian university that will use its software to manage grant allocations.

Quest Computing’s AIMS system is an enterprise-wide grant and knowledge management platform for government bodies that are looking to make and manage grant and funding decisions. It controls all aspects of the funding process, from initial application to assessment, funding, authorisation, payment and monitoring.

Built on the Oracle 11g database system and various open-source technologies, it allows organisations to provide web access to applicants and provides bodies with budgeting and reporting business intelligence.

Quest managing director Don Kingston told that the deal with the Yayasan Multimedia University of Malaysia will provide an important boost to the company, which sees expansion opportunities in the global market.

“Our system will enable the Multimedia University to handle around 6,000 funding applications a year,” Kingston said.

Quest, which employs 50 people at its offices in Dublin, the UK, Holland, Germany and Malaysia, is growing globally through alliances with major system integrators, such as Germany’s FSBM.

“The deal in Malaysia is a great opportunity for Quest and we have to thank the assistance of Enterprise Ireland’s Asia and the staff in the Irish embassy in Malaysia who went out of their way to assist us,” Kingston said.
