Around 149BC in the newly created province of Macedonia, a Roman Senator named Gnaeus Egnatius had a dream. This dream would be of great economic benefit to his region and he knew that he would pursue it should he ever get the chance to.
Through the following years his favor grew and around 146BC he was made Governor. With new found influence and favor, he began the construction of an incredible road project titled ‘Via Egnatia’, a name he coined himself and completed the construction work in 120 BC.
The Via Egnatia or road of Egnatia was built to facilitate trade and growth for the region allowing Egnatius to realise his dream. This process was called EgnatiumTM, a name born after the purpose for which the road was constructed. This purpose was to link Rome with Asia and enable future growth and prosperity for the region.
Just like the vision which empowered Egnatius to complete his commission, we at Egnatium® are continuing this reputation by igniting new growth and even greater success within the business of our customers.
Insights Matrix was the first company Ali Kasa, our founder established in 2004. He set it up in Malaysia to offer research services specialised in employee and customer studies. In 2007 Egnatia Academy was established to fill the evident and growing gap in research and report related competency offering learning and development needs of customers who used the research services.
Conducting employee satisfaction surveys and customer satisfaction surveys year on year for key clients revealed that many initiatives died in the first 12 months and so the need for institutionalisation emerged. Institutionalisation was coupled with sustainability for adopted initiatives.
Knowledge Discovery was the third company added to the group to offer software solutions to existing customers in 2008. In the face of fast evolving technological advancements, Knowledge Discovery offered a much needed solution and created a technological niche for its clients.
In 2010 North Star Glory was established to complete the solution package offering consulting services to customers who were existing research, learning and development clients and software users. Ali Kasa was likened to an incubator that carried its client’s works from inception to maturity.
Since 2011 the Egnatia Group of Companies Malaysia offered integrated productivity solutions for business clients in Malaysia, South East Asia and the Middle East. All these services were offered from the Headquarters in Malaysia. The only setback that came with these ingenious creations is that many clients operating at different time zones could not get the services and support on time.
In 2014 Egnatia established its Australian office and within less than 12 months established its own franchise system. Egnatium® is now a registered trademark in Australia and in the world.
In 2015 Egnitus Holdings achieved greater milestones being established with Egnitus Franchising and Egnatia Corporation as fully owned subsidiaries in Australia.
