Our Vision

We aim to be the preferred business partner for consulting and systems & solutions in the distribution trade in Malaysia, and internationally.




KAT HISTORY

The KAT Group of Companies was first established with the incorporation of KAT Technologies Sdn Bhd
in 1994 by Datuk Ir. (Dr) Khairol Anuar Tawi. A major business opportunity came in the early years when KAT
was appointed as distributor for telco prepaid products. The operations started with only three employees
and a small distribution territory in the Northern States of Peninsular Malaysia in 1999.


It was a lot of hard work and learning on-the-go in the physical distribution of mobile prepaid cards which, at that point in time, was an emerging and innovative mobile service that was rapidly expanding on a global scale. KAT’s small team had to literally comb on foot street-by-street to register dealers as prepaid touchpoints. In the ensuing years, the entrepreneurial drive of our founder and a desire to ride the growth wave of prepaid service gradually led to the development of systematic daily activities, new operating procedures, cash and stock management, check and balance, and a basic in-house developed computerised order management and distribution system to handle the ever-increasing transaction volume.By 2014-15, the distribution complexity had increased tremendously as a result of territorial expansion awarded to KAT by our principals.


The enabler to this rapid growth of our prepaid distribution was the innovation that was introduced in stages into our computerised distribution system and the accompanying standard operating procedures. At the peak of KAT’s physical prepaid distribution operations, we were handling approximately 6 millions pieces of cards monthly. Our system was able to track the location of any one of these cards at any time along our supply chain which comprised a network of more than 10,000 dealers spread across nine States in Peninsular Malaysia. That was the degree of emphasis we had placed in our own operations and the standard we had set for ourselves back then, and which we still do to this day. It is such levels of commitment and refinement of processes that has enabled KAT Technologies to be an award-winning best-in-class distributor. At KAT, we synergise the latest in applications technology, strategic planning, and the drive and enthusiasm of a highly technical professional team.


Today, KATSys™ is a comprehensive distribution management system loaded with tracking, handling, reporting and data mining features particularly suitable for businesses involved in fast moving items in ultra high volume. KATSys™ is equally adept to handle more ordinary goods and in more ordinary volume. KATSys™ is an embodiment of the desire to be the best, where innovation is culture, where failure is not an option, where visibility and control of operations are ingredients for success, and where maximising business profitability is transmitted like a heartbeat that runs all along our supply chain. It is all about efficiency, effectiveness, measurability and accuracy of the daily distribution operations. If your business require distribution, and you need an outsourced distributor, or system and solutions, or just consultancy to support your Go Anywhere, At Anytime, By Anyhow distribution operations, then talk to us at KAT.

KAT GROUP Digital Excellence

When KAT first established its prepaid distribution operations in 1999, digitalisation wasn’t a consideration.
It was all about physical work moving products from the principal to the retailers. It soon became apparent
that to handle all the cards and strips of prepaid stock keeping units (SKU) that grew from mere thousands
to hundreds of thousands back then for delivery to a huge network of retailers on daily basis over a large
territory with no or minimal losses – would require “a system”. As the proverb goes, “necessity is the
mother of invention”. From spreadsheets to PC-based distribution tracking software developed in-house
circa 2005 – these were the initial and inevitable digitalisation steps taken by KAT. This was
the precursor to KATSys™–our in-house developed distribution management system.


KAT was accorded MSC-status in 2011 and we embarked on our digitalisation journey with even more vigour. As the years went by, the features built into KATSys™ reflected our own experience and needs running the distribution operations. Its phased development and the associated standard operating procedures, enabled us to scale up our operations to eventually handle millions of prepaid cards per month, and for multiple principals, while consistently achieving delivery accuracy of at least 99.97% to a network of more than ten thousand retailers. By 2015, digitalisation is a given reality at KAT.


From then on, we raised the bar further. It marked the beginning of our era of digital excellence. The track record of KAT’s physical distribution performance and the increasing dominance in the market fuelled by KATSys™ had earned us several industry recognitions between the years 2012 to 2018. Among these are the STAR Business Award for “Best in Innovation” in 2013; SMECorp “Best Innovation in Services” in 2014; and the Asia Pacific ICT Alliance (APICTA) Awards for “Best of Retail and Supply Chain Management Solution” in 2016.


KATSys™ today had also adapted to solutioning technologies such as cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence, industry internet of things, and blockchain so as to offer our clients the best platform to match distribution operations across many industries. Such is the difference that KATSys™ could bring into the distribution operations of companies. In summary, with our excellent track record, proven methodology and processes, distribution support solutions, and expertise and resources to assist our clients, the KAT Group of Companies continue to be sector leaders and is relentless in our pursuit to achieve the best outcomes for our clients.
