Supplycart is a Malaysian company that can help you source, procure, manage, and restock your office needs, from food in the pantry to stationery. Last week, we invited them to “invade” Supahands HQ in Bangsar South with the thing that they’re known for – fresh fruits, healthy and delicious snacks and plenty of industry knowledge to share. As we cozied up on our beanbags and exchanged ideas whilst munching on crunchy fresh apples, it became clear to us that this was a very insightful session that we’re happy to host in SupHQ. Here’s a quick recap of what went down.
So, what is it like to work with a startup? What can you expect? Previously, we shared an article about the benefits of working in a startup environment that you can check out. To add, Supahands’ Community Manager, Su Yin Voon, had a talk at Sunway University to share her first hand experience working with one – us! If you’re considering being part of the startup community, here are 6 things for you to ponder on.
According to World Bank, business process outsourcing (BPO) revenues could soar to well over US$50 billion and provide some 2.6 million jobs by 2020. With that in mind, Supahands set out to disrupt this lucrative, yet highly competitive field. Unlike traditional BPO companies, Malaysian-born Supahands aims to help businesses scale by changing the nature of time, with its combination of technology solutions and a distributed workforce.
So, you are looking for a part-time gig, but you are also well aware about the many scams for part-time jobs that are prevalent out there. Well, why not work with us as a SupaAgent? Don’t worry, we’re very different from whatever you’ve been seeing out there. Supahands offers a chance to have a rewarding side gig to people, who want the benefits of working remotely and in their own time. Without a doubt, it will indeed be a wise choice. You can read more about what makes us legit in our previous article.
As an individual or a corporation, everyone has the responsibility to give back to the community – one way or another. Typically the thought of a CSR effort makes one automatically assume that a monetary contribution is in order, but donating money isn’t the only way to make the world a better place. Giving back also can be contributions in the form of your time and effort to a community that’s in need. Getting in the spirit of giving and wanting to start the year with good vibes, Supahands recently joined Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK) to help with their regular food drives for the less fortunate around central Kuala Lumpur.
The Supahands team is very excited to finally be able to introduce you to our revamped website soon, as part of our never ending drive to improve ourselves. We’ve gathered all of your feedback and the team has been working hard to create a website that gives you a more comprehensive look at what we do and how we can help you. We also decided to make the experience more interactive for our visitors as well. Check out the full breakdown of all the new features below.
Our SupaBoss, Mark Koh, was recently invited to Malaysia Business Student Summit 2017 (MBSS), organised by Universiti Malaya, to be part of the panel for its symposium – Create Opportunities: The Inner Dimensions of Entrepreneurship and Sustainable Business. Other speakers involved were Tan Ban Eu, co-founder of Offpeak and Boat Noodle’s founder & CEO, Tony Lim.
Moderated by Feixiang Lim, CEO of Major Drop, we found the panel discussion very informative and engaging. Here’s a handy roundup of what we’ve learnt from it. Some of which also act as a reminder for those among us who are going on the path to be entrepreneurs.

After months of getting feedback from our users (some angry ones that have left deep scars), we’re happy to announce that our User Dashboard has got a new look!
People always say that change is always hard but not in this case, we were happy to say goodbye to the old and welcome in the new especially when it meant that there’d be some new features for our users.
So what’s new?
Say hello to colourcoding!
Now we’ve introduced different colour blocks for our task status’ which makes it all the easier to vet through your existing tasks. So there’ll be no more squinting needed, just easy screening.
How many Hands again?
Since we’re on a roll of introducing features designed at making it easier for users, we’ve also decided to make it a little clearer on how many Hands each task has taken. So now it’ll always be clear how many Hands each of your tasks has taken, helping you keep track of it all.
To the left, to the left.
Heeding the words of Beyonce, we’ve shifted everything from the right sidebar to the left. So no need to panic once you’ve signed in to your dashboard, everything is still there right from creating New Tasks, to purchasing more Hands, to redeeming your voucher codes.
Before this, using the dragdown list to filter through your tasks based on its status was truly.. well, a drag. We’ve gone and done away with that and have placed these filters on the left sidebar as well. So all you’ll need to do now is to just click on a status and voila! all those tasks with that status will appear in no time.
So how does this new dashboard beat the old one?
Even though we know that these aren’t major changes but these improvements were all made with our users (YOU!) in mind. Being virtual assistants, we understand that our value is in helping you save time and we wanted that to be visible in how the dashboard was designed as well. This then led to the creation of these new features so that you didn’t have to spend the extra time you didn’t have by going through tasks.
Besides that, the old dashboard looked washed out and tired and we felt that this wasn’t reflecting what we wanted to show our users which was that we were excitedand eager to help them and that Supahands was a place of happiness because when you’re on Supahands, you knew that you were getting things done and who isn’t joyed over that?
So, Love it? Hate it? Sad there isn’t something included? Let us know! Drop us an email at email@example.com so that we can continue making improvements to create a Supadashboard that is seamless and easy for you to use.
We hope you’ll enjoy these changes and happy delegating Supausers! Experience the change and start delegating away at www.supahands.com
