Toppan Ecquaria delivers Digital Government Solutions. Harnessing the potential of technologies, we co-create opportunities and revolutionise the way governments connect with their citizens.
Toppan Ecquaria was started by our four founders Wai Keong, Kwang Han, Ser Wah and Meng Hee. Four forward-thinking innovators and entrepreneurs. They came together with a desire to leverage technology and create a link between the Singapore government and its citizens – to make Singapore a better place for everyone.More >>
Starting from humble beginnings, they embraced the innovative spirit and constantly push the boundaries of technology; a true startup back in their days. Currently, all digital government solutions delivered by us are built on our in-house developed Ecquaria Government Platform (EGP).
Focusing on delivering citizen-centric digital solutions specially for the public sector, we have since grown from strength to strength and have established a strong foundation in digital government solutions.
Over the years, they gathered a loyal tight-knit group of technology enthusiasts to join them in their journey. Our top management has been with the company (an average of 18 years of working together and counting) through its struggles to where we are today.More >>
In 2004, leveraging our expertise in the digital government domain, the team decided to venture offshores and share their experiences with overseas governments; connecting them with their citizens.
Specialising in delivering mission-critical turnkey projects built on our in-house product (EGP), we have since established ourselves in various domains, connected numerous governments with their citizens and we have achieved the highest certification by the Singapore Government to handle IT projects worth S$30 million and above. Not bad for four-men team and a dream.
Today, we are an full-fledged digital government solutions provider with an agile startup mentality. Beginning since 1998, it has been a not-so-short journey. Focusing on the vision and direction our founders have laid down for us, Toppan Ecquaria strives to continuously innovate and create citizen-centric digital solutions to connect governments and their citizens.
Headquartered in Singapore, we currently have offices in Bandung (Indonesia), Brunei and Suzhou (China), with more than 250 employees.
