Proactive mechanism in identifying and reporting genuine asnaf cases is very crucial in contributing to effective zakat distribution. There were many viral cases which had portrayed badly the reputation of the zakat authority. All these have led to low trust from the public or zakat payer which consequently discourage them to pay the zakat properly. Jom Cari Asnaf (JCA) app is carefully designed to leverage the current available information technology in modernizing the asnaf identification and reporting, where public can involve in the processes. It has been equipped with tools for managing and monitoring the management of asnaf identification and reporting. It also takes consideration of the newly-creatively created zakat distribution structure where the involvement of “Penolong Amil”. Penolong Amil are the zakat distribution agents appointed at region (kariah) level to become the front end where they are in better position to assess the genuineness of the case and be able to process or to propose it quickly. JCA has been successfully developed to enable community or concern individual to report immediately any potential asnaf and it has been linked with Penolong Amil and other division of of zakat distribution to increase efficiency and effectiveness of the zakat distribution.
