FAQ

Q1: Can the 5 happy customers used for the purpose of applying for PSG be reused for the purpose of applying for DII?
A1: Yes, it can be. If it has been approved by IMDA, you may also wish to share the approval from IMDA with us.

Q2: Can I apply for more than 1 DII with different software?
A2: You may apply for more than 1 DII as long as each of your software meets the eligibility criteria.

Q3: I am a reseller and did not make any integration efforts, am I eligible to apply?
A3: Unfortunately, DII is to incentivize the integration of the 3 digital products under the ASR+ framework. Hence, you would not be eligible for the DII if no integration efforts were made.
