• JurisTech’s 2023 in Review: A Year of Milestones, Innovation, and Community Spirit

    JurisTech’s journey in 2023 has been marked by a series of noteworthy events, shaping our world in diverse ways. As we approach the end of this truly eventful year, it is only fitting that we take a moment to reflect on the numerous accomplishments and milestones that have defined its narrative. Without further ado, let us take a look at JurisTech’s 2023 in review. 

    • Adoption and Implementation of Kaizen

    Kaizen is a Japanese term that translates to “continuous improvement” or “change for the better.” It is a Japanese concept that is often associated with the business and manufacturing sectors. The Kaizen philosophy emphasises making small, incremental improvements to processes, products, or services over time.

    Kaizen promotes a continuous improvement mindset, in which employees at all levels of an organisation actively participate in suggesting and implementing small changes to improve efficiency, quality, and overall performance. The goal is to foster a culture of continuous improvement by encouraging innovation and adaptability.

    How JurisTech applies the Key Principles of Kaizen:

    Continuous Improvement: Kaizen promotes the idea that there is always room for improvement, and that small, continuous changes can lead to significant advancements over time.

    Employee Involvement: JurisTech employees are encouraged to actively participate in identifying and proposing areas for improvement. This participation fosters a sense of ownership and commitment to the process of improvement.

    Elimination of Waste: Kaizen aims to reduce waste in processes, whether it is time, materials, or resources. Through the identification and elimination of waste, JurisTech can enhance its efficiency and reduce its expenses.

    Standardisation: In addition to encouraging continuous improvement, Kaizen emphasises how crucial it is to standardise effective procedures in order to preserve and expand upon advancements.

    Focus on Quality: At the core of Kaizen is an improvement in quality. Enhancing the calibre of JurisTech’s products and services is the aim of ongoing process improvement.

    • Celebrating 15 years of CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility)

    JurisTech was privileged to provide support to two organisations this year: Rumah KIDS (Kanak-kanak Ini Disayangi) and SPICES (Supporting Parents, Infants, and Children through Early Services).

    JurisTech’s mission to improve the lives of underprivileged children is in line with the proceeds from this year’s 4th Charity Golf Tournament at Sungai Long Golf and Country Club, which raised money essential for SPICES’ developmental projects.

    Regarding Rumah KIDS, JurisTech employed internal fundraising to generate an astounding RM62,202.33, which it then contributed to the organisation. JurisTech’s COO, Naaman Lee, demonstrated the company’s dedication to helping disadvantaged kids by personally sponsoring gifts. Not only that, but in addition to the monetary donation, the JurisTech Annual Dinner committee helped by holding an interactive art class for the children.

    • The Release of JurisTech’s Auto-Decisioning Engine

    To make the best decisions, Juris Decisioncraft, the auto-decisioning engine developed by JurisTech, combines data and analytics from multiple systems and sources. It gives companies in a variety of industries the power to use data-driven insights, making it easier to formulate complex and important decisions quickly and confidently. With its intuitive web interface and no-code technology, Juris DecisionCraft allows businesses to easily refine decision models inside the system without the need for programming or specialised technical knowledge.

    • The Launch of Brand-New or Reformed Business Units

    Mobile Team, Decision & Data Science (DDS), and Advocates for Client Experience & Success (ACES) are the three business units that were formed/reformed during the current year. 

    The Mobile Team is primarily responsible for maintaining internal mobile applications and creating mobile app versions for all JurisTech products. DDS is responsible for JurisTech’s autoML AI platform and auto-decisioning engine, in addition to managing iMoney’s (JurisTech’s consumer arm) data tasks and report automation. With its redesigned organisational structure, ACES is dedicated to providing clients with individualised support at a faster rate.

    • Multiple Major Projects Completed with Success
