As far as brands go Razer is up there in the gaming firmament as one of the world’s greatest brands for gaming peripherals and they’ve just made their next big step by establishing a new country headquarters in Malaysia
The launch was graced by a host of worthies including Malaysia’s Minister of Finance Lim Guan Eng and the Minister of Youth & Sports Syed Saddiq bin Syed Abdul Rahman.
The new office hosts 280 Razer employees and is located in the posh looking The Vertical nestled in Bangsar South within the heart of Kuala Lumpur. “Razer will be investing in Malaysia as a hub for our fintech efforts in Southeast Asia,” says Min-Liang Tan, co-founder and CEO of Razer who joined the official opening ceremony. “It is the first country in the world to be ready for Razer Pay, and we see the Razer Malaysia office as a natural springboard for our fintech efforts in the region.”
In terms of fintech, Razer has made significant gains in the field with the launch of their Razer Pay e-wallet app last year in Malaysia with over 500,000 signing up in less than a week. Razer is also working with merchants in Bangsar South to start accepting Razer Pay along with reward programmes like coupons and flash sales. Razer is also exploring opportunities with UOA to digitise and integrate their carpark system to settle their fees with Razer Pay. For more on Razer swing by www.razer.com
