Takenaka Corporation came to Malaysia in 1981 at the invitation of Malaysia's then Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad, in line with his Look East Policy to construct the Dayabumi Office Building on a fast-track joint venture.

They were localized in 1990 under Takenaka (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd., a general contractor that offers clients an integrated Design-and-Build service for all types of buildings. Their clients range from the government and government-linked companies to the private sector, both local and foreign. They are involved in projects in various building types, particularly in building large shopping centres and factories.

Takenaka is a construction company that has multiple active sites across Malaysia. Previously, workforce management such as staff overtime and leave applications were carried out manually, involving various paperwork, which caused difficulties for HR to monitor the attendance and approvals. After years of dealing with the tedious manual way, Takenaka HR is ready to change to a fully automated system that is centralized, convenient, and able to improve the overall operation flow.

The decision to switch to the cloud is also driven by the fact that the manual way costs the business even more. The company suffered from unaccounted lost hours, wasted hours, and costly human errors when HR always had to back up data, calculated attendance and leave balance manually and tracked the carried over leaves from the physical forms.

The subscription of TimeTec TA, the cloud-based attendance system, has solved all the above issues excellently for Takenaka. Now, they are implementing TimeTec TA with beacons for their staff to clock in and out. The staff only needs to tap their smartphone on the beacon, and the system accurately records the attendance's time. In addition, the data centralization of TimeTec TA has made it possible for the office to gather data from all sites across Malaysia simultaneously and in real-time, providing them with an accurate overall picture of their workforce day in and day out.


Besides, Takenaka also subscribes to TimeTec Leave, the smart leave solution that provides easy leave applications and approvals via an app. In addition, the app provides up to date leave balance, as the system updates the balance every time a transaction is processed. The TimeTec Leave has provided utmost convenience to the staff, and the HR, who now has access to the complete leave records of every employee and can generate various leave reports as and when they need them.  

In summary, Takenaka's shift to TimeTec TA & TimeTec Leave has improved workforce management tremendously due to the automation and convenience aspects of the solutions.
