AJIYA Group of Companies
AJIYA Berhad and its Group of Companies: Started as a metal roll forming company in 1990, the Group ventured into production of high value-added safety glass products. AJIYA products cater to a wide range of industries, from commercial buildings to common residential houses.
With continuous expansions, AJIYA has a network of 18 factories/warehouses with offices throughout Malaysia and Thailand. The business has developed to be a one-stop manufacturer of Industrialized Building System (IBS), with its very own Ajiya Green Integrated Building Solutions (AGiBS).
The AJIYA Group of Companies understands that keeping up with today’s technology is key to staying relevant and successful. In the pursuit of increased efficiency and productivity, the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) team is looking into adoption of new systems and technologies within the Group.
In 2019, AJIYA Group has upgraded from using Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system, to using Systems, Applications and Products (SAP) system. This prevalent system enables quicker approval and processing with more reliable data sharing, amplifying the efficiency of the entire process.
Concurrently, AJIYA Group is exploring the possibilities of using cloud base systems, for information storage and backup, instead of physical storage in 2020. This is not only to save valuable physical space required to store the backup information, but to also enable easier sharing of information, documents, and files with external parties. While considering the usage of cloud storage, the Group is looking to improve on reducing inefficiencies during annual hardware renewals and end-of-life support, as well as further protecting the Group’s data from ransomware attacks.
In line with the group’s digital transformation efforts towards IR 4.0, with the cloud base system, AJIYA hopes the next phase of digital transformation could be elevated to the next level, as they are also working hand-in-hand with higher learning institutions and system integrators, to implement system integrations for faster vertical (factory-to-factory), and horizontal (shop floor machines-to-business system) interoperability, creating more business values to customers and improving overall business operations.
These efforts are in line with UN SDG 9, target 9.5, to upgrade the technological capabilities of industrial sectors. AJIYA’s facilities are continually being upgraded and the Group is looking forward to doing more in the upcoming years.
