As the newest company that has the complete differences aspect among the existing insurance company, the main challenge is to create they own computer system for General Takaful Business and Family Takaful Business. They invented General and Family Takaful System (GTS and FTS) by using existing source and speciality.
The economic growth and the society awareness about the importance of the insurance have made a rapid change to the Takaful Malaysia. More people are interested to buy product that has been offered by Takaful Malaysia. Although the revenue of the company has been increased due to the increasing demand, but the high volume of transaction resulted to the failure of GTS and FTS performance both to the internal employee as well and certificate issuance.
