Digitalising A City Through George Town City Centre


Digitalising A City Through George Town City Centre

It is not all about growing businesses online, but at Exabytes, we are passionate about digitalising whenever we see the opportunity for growth.

What is GTCC?

Have you heard about the recently launched GTCC? GTCC stands for George Town City Centre and this is the latest initiative by the Penang State Government and other partners surrounding the areas of Komtar Walk to revive the area.

Also a part of this project is The Top Penang, 1st Avenue, Prangin Mall, Tech Dome Penang, ICT Hub, Komtar management and others.

“With a total cost of RM2.8 million, there are seven food and beverage outlets, 58 car parking lots, 43 motorcycle lots, bus lay-by, pick up & drop off point, new landscape upgrading and toilet facilities.

We hope this venue will bring a “new breath of life” and add value to this location,” said the Penang Chief Minister, Chow Kon Yeow.

Digitalising GTCC

Keeping up with the trends of going digital, the George Town City Centre committee approached Exabytes for our expertise and thoughts on creating an online presence for GTCC. Happy we were to hear of this new initiative for the city of George Town, and even more on the team’s interest in bringing this online. 

As much as it is a physical and brick and mortar set-up that this project is reviving and revitalising, being Southeast Asia’s leading All-in-one Business Cloud, Digital and eCommerce solutions provider, Exabytes sees great opportunities in bringing this online and growing this initiative through digitalisation.

Having passer-by chance upon GTCC is almost leaving the growth of this project to luck, if we may say. Giving GTCC an online presence brings wider possibilities for GTCC to be promoted digitally.

Customer behaviours have changed over time and the first thing many would do before proceeding with visiting a new place would be to check them out online.

Having detailed information, a gallery, latest promotions etc. available for interested visitors to check out is a nudge further in enticing them to visit you.

How did Exabytes support?

With our experience and expertise, Exabytes put a team together right after GTCC’s request for a website sponsorship.

Our team worked closely with the management of GTCC, as well as gave our best advice on how to best optimise the structure, user experience and look and feel of GTCC’s website. 

Supporting through our digital solutions for a good cause is what Exabytes has been practising over our 20 years being in business. We believe that by taking you online, we are growing with you hand-in-hand, be it revenue-related or not, we want to see success with you.
