MalaysiaSAFE: Could you kindly give a brief background to your company?
Mr. Shaji PRISMABYTES started in the year 2000 in Kuala Lumpur. In the earlier years of our growth phase, we mainly concentrated on airport related security projects and consulting assignments in Malaysia and overseas. We slowly expanded our operations in India and the Middle East and started offering total security solutions since 2002.
10 years ago, we created our OEM product segment under the CCTVTECH brand, concentrating on the vast video surveillance industry – primarily targeting India and the Middle Eastern market. We were successful there at a time when those countries were leveraging on electronic security solutions. Nevertheless, we were having a steady growth in the Malaysian market with solutions for gated community, infrastructure, prisons, detention center security and so on.
Currently, PRISMABYTES has various state-of-the-art solutions for integrated security segment. With our dedication to continuously learn and invest, and our experience in the areas of design, engineering, manufacturing and R&D, we have grown to establish ourselves as one of the leading solution providers of integrated security and IoT based solutions in Asia.
We also developed various smart city solutions and components and started manufacturing specialized security equipment in Malaysia, offering solutions in Southeast Asia, India and Middle eastern countries.
MalaysiaSAFE: How are the company’s operations structured within this region?
Mr. Shaji: PRISMABYTES is a Malaysian based company with a global presence. We have established branches in India, Singapore and in 2019 we will be starting our own operations in the middle east. We are also having presence through our partners in other Southeast Asian markets such as Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam.
MalaysiaSAFE: How do you qualify the brands that you carry in your portfolio?
Mr. Shaji: If you look at our products portfolio, we have major global brands as our partners such as Pelco, Verint, KBC, Soletech, Remsdaq, Honeywell, Videotec, Arecontvision, AllgoVision, Uncannyvision, SigFox-Xparanti, and CEM to name a few. But we are not a products specific marketing company. We do not blindly choose any particular brand to market it. It is the manufacturing companies that find and choose to work with us. We normally look at what the customers need in terms of product and the technological specifications meeting their functional requirements, and then choose the right products. We create solutions based on the client’s requirements.
As far as we are concerned, we normally work with many brands for each project and we create solutions suitable for the client, such as customising the dashboards, creating an integrated platform suiting to client’s SOP. We also create devices to match the end users’ demand such as environmental considerations and other factors, and of course the budget available. We believe every product has its own advantages and disadvantages, unlike some companies, who would only supply products which are exclusive to them.
