IOI Properties Group Berhad (IOIPGB) is a major real estate firm from Malaysia, with operations spanning across the Asia-Pacific region. With restrictions on local and international travel due to the pandemic, IOI Properties started looking for solutions that could help them sail through remote work and futureproof their business.

Strongly believing in repair over replacement, they looked for solutions that could be integrated with their existing legacy systems. Landing upon low-code and Zoho Creator, and with the help of a Zoho partner, they not only integrated their existing software, but also built custom applications tailor-made to their unique processes.
