Pre-Approval of ICM Vendors' Solutions


Infocomm Media (ICM) vendors play a key role in the SMEs Go Digital programme.

If you are an ICM vendor with ready digital solutions proven to deliver productivity gains to SMEs, we invite you to attend our Monthly ICM Vendor Briefing to find out more about how you can submit your solution for pre-approval under the programme.

Who is it for

Vendors with ready ICM digital solutions that are sector-specific or that cut across various sectors


Pre-approved solutions can be adopted by SMEs with support from the Productivity Solutions Grant. Such pre-approved solutions – assessed by IMDA to be effective, market-tested and cost-effective – will be made available on Tech Depot.
