Asiakom - Driving Operational Excellence: Katsana Success Story

Founded in 1992, Asiakom is leading the railway and construction industry in Malaysia. Recognized with ‘Pioneer’ status by the Malaysian Industrial Development Authority (MIDA), Asiakom broadened its portfolio into railway construction, track renewal, and railway material supply in 2001.

With two decades of expertise, Asiakom entered its third decade, bolstered by a dynamic management team and cutting-edge equipment, as it drives operational excellence with KATSANA’s Precision Fleet Management.

Navigating Operational Challenges

Even as a leading force in Malaysia’s Construction and Railway Industries, Asiakom faced complex challenges in tracking and monitoring its assets. The meticulous management of operational aspects such as precise fuel consumption monitoring, tracking multiple drivers across various assets, and generating comprehensive reports covering trip details, vehicle movement status, and fuel levels became imperative to their success. Recognizing the indispensable need for an advanced fleet management solution, Asiakom proactively sought a strategic partnership to enhance operational efficiency.

Finding a Reliable Fleet Management Partner: Ensuring Efficient Resource Allocation

Selecting a fleet management partner is a critical decision for any company, especially in the demanding landscape of rail and road construction where operational monitoring and precision reporting are vital. The partnership aimed at addressing Asiakom’s operational challenges by efficiently managing and tracking assets, reducing costs, and ensuring optimal fuel consumption. Asiakom recognized and prioritized the importance of implementing a system to enhance resource allocation efficiency, which is a cornerstone in its pursuit of operational excellence.

The collaboration began with a meticulous trial of three units in 2020, underscoring a commitment to thorough evaluation before full-scale implementation. Following the successful trial, the partnership expanded, leading to the installation of the comprehensive suite of devices and sensors in 96 vehicles since 2021. The deployment of GPS Devices, Fuel Sensors, RFID, Immobilizer technologies, and other devices played a crucial role in achieving these objectives.

How KATSANA Supports Asiakom’s Fleet Management
