Soft Space had our first intern join us in January 2014. The 20-year-old law student, Kiko Yap joined us as a law-intern. At Soft Space, we believe in providing a platform for interns to learn and be exposed to the working world. Along with the perks and benefits that comes with the job, we focus on career development, most importantly providing interns the opportunity to take initiative and explore their majoring field.

Coming from us may not be convincing enough hence why, we got Ms Yap to share her internship experience here at Soft Space. This is what she had to say about her 1-month internship program with us.

“We at FLEXIROAM have been using CIMB Plug and Pay, powered by Softspace for over 8 months. Having 4 business centers in major Malaysian international airports the payment service was relatively fast to deploy and easy to use. This payment solution compliments our cloud based point of sales systems which runs on Apple iPads which means we can use our existing hardware. Furthermore, we find the benefit of quickly deploying this payment solution at different settings including events a great feature for our business. Cloud and App based payment solution brings benefits for mufti-location and rapidly growing companies like ours in easing operational complexities and remote access to information on demand.” – Jason Khoo, VP of Business Development at Flexiroam Malaysia
