Mission to embark digital transformation in 2021

Digital transformation is a widespread movement that global companies, large and small, are quickly adopting for their business to stay afloat, especially during this ongoing pandemic.

During this era of modern technology, we’re slowly but surely shifting from the physical world to the digital space. This phenomenon is known as the digital transformation which refers to the convergence of all digital technologies to reconstruct services and operations by actively reshaping or replacing outdated technology with the latest trending digital technologies. This digitalization movement includes shifting paper to spreadsheets, written records to typed documents and from managing old businesses practices to smart tech-based practices where modern companies are reimagining the way they run their business by adopting new digital technologies to leverage the digital transformation.

 

Digital transformation is a widespread movement that global companies, large and small, are quickly adopting for their business to stay afloat, especially during this ongoing pandemic. Following a survey done by the leading survey company Gartner, 91% of organizations nowadays are engaging in some form of digital initiatives while a survey done before COVID-19 by SAP & Oxford Business implies that leading companies have increased their profits after digital transformation. This movement has inevitably caused an ever-increasing demand for intelligent, reliable and available data to motivate both local and global organizations to implement digital strategies. As a way to satisfy the need for digital transformation strategies, a Malaysian R&D startup, REKA is prioritizing digital enablement as a central focus of their clients’ modernization initiatives. REKA, well-known for the Malaysian talents that created a local autonomous vehicle, is currently exploring the potential engagement in the field of traffic data monitoring with their Japanese counterparts as well as warehouse automation, and the digitalization of the local aftermarket sector.

 

The COO of REKA, Amri Mohd Din, commented: “We’ve well-equipped our team for the digital transformation movement even before the pandemic which helped our clients to sustain their business by transferring their organization to the digital space. We quickly studied and understood the ever-increasing demand in the current times and started working on digital automation technologies within our services which we used to advance the digitalization process. One of our efforts towards digital transformation was joining the SERV Group to further enhance the digitalization movement beyond the automotive industry”.

 

Digital transformation has not only transcended the operations and services of businesses worldwide but it has also changed the everyday lives of the people. This global pandemic demonstrated how people in 2020 heavily rely on digital technologies which calls for modern organizations to equip digital transformation strategies to remain relevant in the post-pandemic era. Digital transformation is not just a passing event, it is a long-term movement that has been our commitment since REKA began its journey to build better technology for the people.

Goodbye 2020, holla new REKA!

As we bid adieu to 2020, let’s take a look at what this rollercoaster of a year has brought us and see what’s in store for us next year! This year became the year where we ascended to a new phase at REKA. We remodeled our entire look and feel to represent a brand new identity. This new face of REKA reflects our future alongside the fun and beautiful side of the realm of technology. We took the original REKA logo & branding and made a few tweaks to the design to showcase the endless fun side with different kinds of inputs in technology. Let’s take a look at other achievements we made last year.

Last year we took a leap of faith and joined forces with SERV to advance mobility technology in Malaysia which is aligned with our aim to expand the implementation of our AI and autonomous technology. By adding REKA’s capabilities into SERV’s ambition, the group has now provided a simpler approach to promote the R&D of autonomous mobility technology across the automotive networks in the region. This collaboration allows REKA to design and move forward with various types of multi-dimensional tech solutions that will be needed to address the complex problems in the whole automotive industry.

The partnership with our Japanese counterpart began with the deployment of this traffic sensor that was installed at one of the main entry points to Cyberjaya as a test run in 2019. Apart from the technical support from our team, we’re also active in advocating for our local engineers by joining a talk with YME: Young Malaysian Engineers and covered a few subtopics under data analytics such as Economy, Social, Agriculture, Mobility, and Careers/Fresh Grads. 

During the peak of the pandemic, we were hard at work to devise a way for us to give back to our dedicated front liners by partnering with MERCY Malaysia to deliver intubation boxes to hospitals around Malaysia! This may not have been a revolutionary way to help them but it was our small contribution to flatten the curve last year. 

As it was a stressful time for many, our team was forced to adapt to the ‘new norm’ amidst the ongoing pandemic crisis. Our remote working started just a few weeks before the MCO in Malaysia commenced which was definitely a different experience for many peREKAs who were fortunately coping well whilst juggling between work and personal life with the help of modern technology. We ensured that our team followed all the SOPs seriously by encouraging everyone to mainly work from home & only make essential trips within their vicinity. We believe that our small steps play a huge role in helping to curb the COVID-19 spread by abiding by the SOPs & staying safe through these trying times.

At REKA, we believe in trying to out-do ourselves and achieving greater heights each year. With our friends over at SERV – who believe that great is never good enough – we’ll definitely be working harder towards achieving our shared goal towards serving the people and our nation with innovation in the field of technology. If you’re interested in our future developments, we advise you to expect the unexpected when it comes to our talents and the future we’re building.
