About Katsana

We are transforming fleet & enterprise operations for the digital age.

It all started with
a simple idea...

In 2013, two cars belonging to people close to the founder of KATSANA, Syed Ahmad Fuqaha were stolen in the span of just a week.

His market researched showed that existing solutions to track and secure vehicles were outdated and did not take advantage of rapid smartphone adoption that would allow vehicle owners to track vehicles in real-time.

Together with co-founder Irwan Ibrahim, the duo decided to bring innovations into the vehicle telematics/tracking market.

From what started as a simple idea to track and secure cars, KATSANA diversified into fleet management, telematics for usage-based insurance, big-data for automotive and industrial IoT (internet-of-things) technologies.

Today, KATSANA is one of the fastest growing tech companies in Malaysia with footprints across Asia, Australia and South Americas.
