We started with an ambition to be among the service provider in the oil and gas industry in June 2017. The period when the oil and gas market was very fragile and oil price was most volatile. In less than six months, the price per barrel may fall from roughly USD 70 to around USD 40. Three years ago, based on the belief that one should "be courageous when others are fearful", we acquired an existing company and began to make our mark on this challenging market. We want to offer onshore surveying and positioning as the company's primary service and will gradually expand offshore. In addition, we have begun to invest in data management services as a secondary business line.
We completed our first project for Empangan Jus in the first six months under Badan Kawal Selia Air (BKSA), Melaka. Shortly after, we were granted two other projects under BKSA, Empangan Durian Tunggal-Bundle I and II.
The determination to prove that our local talent are at par with other well-known international products has now been established by the in-house inventions. We called it PRIDE - our AI-powered data extraction service and KRISPI - our AI-powered chatbot. These inventions have been used by the government as well as non-government sectors.
Our mission is to make our country proud by providing competitive local high-tech inventions. We also want to assist business owners in coping with limitations of time and expense (resources that many assume are beyond their control). We are confident in claiming that we save our clients money since we DON'T sell things; instead, we provide solutions. Our solutions are so adaptable that they can meet any business need.
As you are reading this, back in the office, we are busy improvising our systems and occupied with more research to offer a lot more. The sky is not the limit when there are footprints on Mars.

In June 2018, we successfully competed for a three-year data management contract with PETRONAS Carigali. Since then, this has altered our business landscape. We began aligning our business with the current demand for digitalization. In April 2019, we collaborated with the University of Malaya (UM). We have a Research and Development (R&D) Team led by three senior lecturers from the Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology and the best students from UM.
