This chapter told us about Skali for the first project NeoFission at year 2000. Trinity Network is first customer was using NeoFission where is basic information website for small company. After one year, they have got high-profile project from OIC Networks in OIC Exchange website. The purpose of the website was to bridge the Muslim communities within the Organisation of Islamic Conference countries, hence increasing interconnectivity among OIC individuals, corporations and government bodies. The reason why Skali choose was they have everything what OIC Networks want. Besides that, they have proposition unique.
Another customer is Malaysian Airports. Malaysian Airports are the most important customer because Malaysian Airports is shareholder. At year 2002, Skali won a RM3 million contract to build a website for the Employees Provident Fund (EPF). That was a tough one to tender for because there were about 30 other competitors bidding for the same project. But Skali have a big problem because EPF don’t want a basic website. EPF want to be interactive where members could log on to make changes to their addresses and other personal details.
But Skali can solve a problem. It is because they have experience about Malaysian Airports before it . But Skali have a big problem where they have don’t enough money. They have try approached a few commercial banks for the loan but the banks didn’t gave that loan. But Skali have lucky. It is because the Ministry of Finance had come up with Malaysian Debt Ventures (MDV), a project funded by the Japanese government to help local technology projects gain access to project financing capital. They have got it.
One project that Skali lost is Malaysian Airlines. Skali didn’t have the project because it involved building many components that Skali didn’t specialize in. Another project that Skali lost out on was the Putrajaya website.
