Ken Yong established IFCA in 1987. Discover the ups and downs of his success story.
Here are our key milestones in a nutshell.
We began our journey as a business software solutions provider specialising in the property industry on 23rd April 1987
We started with the DOS operating system and then migrated to Xenix before it was replaced with the Unix platform.
In order to provide localised services to our customers, we expanded our reach to other states including Penang, Johor, Sarawak, Sabah and Pahang.
We started having talks with an Indonesian firm on distributing our software in the country.
In line with our continuous efforts to improve our products according to the latest emerging technologies, we replaced the Unix platform with our Windows-based application software.
On 22nd January 1998, we were accorded MSC status due to our efforts in promoting local R&D and the push to export local software products overseas. This initiative was in line with the Government’s MSC initiatives at that time.
We were listed on the Malaysian Exchange of Securities Dealing and Automated Quotation Berhad (MESDAQ) on Bursa Malaysia on 30th July 2003.
We made a breakthrough in the China market via our maiden deal in Shanghai for a tenancy management solution for an up-market shopping and entertainment establishment. We also made inroads in Australia by clinching a deal to implement a property and resort solution for Mulpha Sanctuary Cove, a prestigious destination resort in Australia’s Gold Coast.
We successfully launched our new generation of e-business solutions with industry-specific functionalities and enterprise group services application, which leverage on the Microsoft.Net platform.
Moving forward, we are now on the way to defining new heights with IFCA 2.0. We aspire to shape the future of the property industry and beyond through new technologies and innovations.
