What kind of organizations will survive and flourish into the distant future?
Some industries that can survive in the current pandemic era are healthcare, telco, pharmacy, logistics, distribution, technology, gas, electricity, agriculture, animal husbandry, plantation, fisheries, automotive, and banking.
What was the primary challenge that ED-SEN aimed to solve?
We noticed that many companies are not familiar with cloud technology and still relied on manual systems, such as spreadsheets. Besides, each department has its own system creating gaps and complexities in business operations. The ED-SEN Consulting team aims at educating companies to get on the path to transformation using cloud technology and solve the challenges arising out of performing manual tasks.
How successful was your first project roll on?
ED-SEN Consulting’s first project was a successful one. In this project, ED-SEN engaged with one of the largest multi-finance companies in Indonesia. We helped them transform from manual/spreadsheet systems to cloud technology through the implementation of business performance management. ED-SEN helped in increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of the company in planning and budgeting.
What initially took approximately 2 months to do one simulation can now be done much faster. With ED-SEN, five or even ten simulations can be performed in a day.
Is your company a ‘leader or follower’? Do you formulate your own core values?
I would say – Leaders. Our company is a leader because it has formulated unique core values which are – Long Term Relationships, Expert Resources, Effective and Efficient, Develop Your Business, Solution-Oriented. Whatever we do at ED-SEN revolves around these core values.
‘Leaders cannot optimize results by themselves; they need employees’ support and assistance.’ How does your company interpret this saying?
True. Basically, ED-SEN Consulting has 3 important elements in the company, namely data, human resources, and technology that support each other.
If you have to list five factors that have been/are the biggest asset to your organization, what would they be and why?
- Human Resources, a company will not run without the position holders and their human resources.
- Technology, a company can develop if it is balanced with technology.
- Data, companies can be said to be successful if they can manage their data well.
- Knowledge, the company will be able to develop and adapt well if it has human resources who have extensive knowledge.
- Leadership, because ED-SEN Consulting believes that every individual in a company must have a leadership spirit.
People like it when companies are involved in social community and CSR activities. What do you say about this?
A good company is a company that cares about the surrounding environment. ED-SEN Consulting itself has carried out several CSR activities every year starting from 2019 until now.
Where do you see you and your company a couple of years from now?
ED-SEN Consulting’s strategy certainly grows in terms of organization and financial structure. In the future, ED-SEN Consulting will focus on financial structure, even to the public listed.
