Access Software price increases, start from 1st March 2024

We are contacting you today to inform you of a change to your software pricing, which will come into effect start from 1st March 2024.

This is aligned to the upcoming increase in Malaysia’s Sales and Services Tax (SST), which will rise from 6% to 8% as of the 1st March 2024. This adjustment will have implications for many businesses, ours included.

Why the increase on software?
On top of the changes to SST, our commitment to deliver high-quality products and service remains the primary factor in this review of our pricing. We remain dedicated to providing you with the level of quality you anticipate and deserve, ensuring that our products maintain their status as market leading. Additionally, we work to continually enhance our product offerings to align with your evolving needs.

Securing and retaining exceptional talent, coupled with a deep understanding of UBS software, has proven challenging in the current competitive labour market. Consequently, our costs associated with supporting the product have risen over the past 12 months. It is important to note that we have endeavoured to minimise this increase, recognising the cost pressures our customers are also confronting while UBS remains one of the most cost-effective financial, inventory, billing and payroll solutions in the market.

What are the new fees?
You will see a 9% increase for all Access UBS and any other Access products you may be using, inclusive of Sales and Services Tax (SST), starting from the 1st March 2024.

What next?
You do not need to do anything – these changes will happen automatically from the 1st March 2024 and will be applied against your renewal invoice. However, we understand that change can be unsettling, and that’s why we’re providing ample notice for these adjustments.

Access Analytics with UBS

Access UBS customers on the latest version can now integrate with Access
Analytics, to get more insights to your business performance, securely and
all in 1 single location. Access Analytics makes it easy for you to understand
your business performance and share information with your employees or
colleagues as it is delivered through our Access Workspace software solution, where all your employees will be able to access.
The 2 main functions of Access Analytics start with Insights and Dashboards.

What are Insights and Dashboards?

Insights are the starting point of Analytics. You can create an Insight by choosing a data set that you want to visualise, select the Insight template (chart, metric or table type) that you want to display the data in and apply the filters to complete. Your Insight will be created according to your options. There are multiple Insight templates available for you to choose. You can further drill down into the details of your Insights by clicking on
their components.

Access Analytics extracts data from your UBS system saving you time from data preparation and export. With data from your accounting, inventory and payroll displayed in dashboards, you can easily view and understand your business performance. Running on the cloud, your users can view the dashboards anytime, anywhere. Access controls can also be set to ensure the dashboards are available only to staff with permission to view.

Harness the power of visualisation to communicate the pulse of your business companywide. Access Analytics for UBS offers an extensive suite of pre-built dashboards, enabling you to easily see the strengths and gaps across every aspect of your business. You can also leverage our visualisation tools to create additional customised dashboards from your data set.

How Access Analytics works with UBS

We have built secured connections between Access Workspace and UBS
so that you can securely transmit your UBS data across. A security token is generated for each unique customer so that your data remains accessible only to you. This security token will have to be matched and accepted at your Access Workspace instance before you can proceed.

We are and continue to be committed to offering you the quality you expect and deserve, specifically ensuring our software services are best in class to effectively support your changing needs.

With Expense users can now manage the entire process online and automate tasks for increased efficiency, this helps the finance/HR to cut down processing time and move forward paperless.

Employees are able capture expenses digitally by simply snapping a pic or scanned document and attach it their expense for submission. Where else Employers can have up to 3 levels of approval claims submission and certain type of policy for a claim.

This whole process can be done via browser on pc or mobile app, in additional to that the mobile app includes OCR (document capture) on the receipt so users simply take a picture of the receipt, using their phone camera and it picks up all the information for them to submit the expense. In terms of reporting, it connects to Analytics for a comprehensive report and in-depth analysis.


Applause is a peer-to-peer employee recognition software that engages, motivates and connects your people. An employee recognition platform gives your people a quick and easy way of sending someone they work with praise, reward, and virtual applause for their work or behaviour.
