GRANTEE PROFILE -Locally Produced Innovative Software Has Potential to Revolutionize Port Management In Indonesia (This document is created by SENADA as part of their Grantee Profile).

By | News | No Comments

One important barrier to improving the competitiveness of Indonesia’s industry has been the inefficient operation of the nation’s ports, which have fallen behind the systems used in other countries to ensure transparent, rapid and reasonably priced movement of goods. While leaders such as Singapore, Hong Kong and others have instituted integrated information systems that utilize modern technology, Indonesia has continued to rely on outdated and largely manual systems that are slow, expensive, and make it difficult to prevent or detect fraud and corruption.  This is particularly troublesome in light of Indonesia’s exceptional need for good port management, as a nation consisting of many scattered islands.

Early attempts by the Batam Port Authority to address this problem were unsuccessful when the software they tested did not enable port activities to be aligned with international best practices in port administration and management. Confident that it possessed the technical know-how to address this problem, the firm PT Dycode Cominfotech Development submitted a proposal to iMULAI (a special national software innovation competition under SENADA’s Business Innovation Fund that is operated in partnership with Microsoft Indonesia) to develop web-based software capable of bringing Indonesian port activities up to international standards. The firm was one of three iMULAI winners, and received a grant for Rp 225,000,000 between June and December 2008 to create a specialized port management portal. PT Dycode’s new software, dubbed PortMAP, is designed to manage a wide variety of Indonesian port activities, including docking schedules, cargo loading, berthing times and departure dates. Local engineers and developers created a system that allows effective management of activities at a detailed level in both the Port Authority office and in the field at each port.

PortMAP is also designed to integrate information on the movement of goods in a manner that permits the Authority to do comprehensive surveillance and monitoring.  Launched publicly on November 26, 2008, PortMAP has proved an immediate success, performing effectively in Indonesia’s six largest ports. Following the testing, Port Authority officials requested additional customization of the software so that it can be implemented not only in the biggest ports but also in over 100 additional, smaller ports under the Batam Port Authority.  The PortMAP software is now available for sale in the market by contacting www.dycode.co.id  The “Dycode” in the company name “PT Dycode Cominfotech Development” is a combination of the words dynamic and code. The name was chosen to reflect the dynamic nature of the company’s objectives, using code as the tool to accomplish them. The company was founded by six young IT practitioners in April of 2007, and has already grown to a staff of 42 technical and support staff. Its mission is to deliver dynamic, mature and requirement compliant IT solutions that optimize clients’ business value. The Business Innovation Fund (BIF) is an initiative launched in June, 2007 by SENADA. BIF offers short-term, high impact grants for the development of innovative products for the value chains where SENADA focuses. Details can be found at www.senada.or.id/innovation.  SENADA is a four-year, USAID-financed project whose goal is to increase Indonesia’s economic growth and employment by improving the competitiveness of major, labor-intensive light manufacturing industries.

SENADA Partners Conference “Lesson Learned in Industry Competitiveness”

By | News | No Comments

Due to the end of  SENADA project in July / August 2009, on July 14th 2009 SENADA held a conference entitled "SENADA Partners Conference" at Le Meridien Hotel,  Jakarta.

SENADA is a four-year project financed by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Started in September 2005, the objective of SENADA is to generate growth, jobs and income by increasing the competitiveness of Indonesia’s major labor intensive light manufacturing industries. SENADA focuses on five industries: footwear, home furnishing, auto parts, garments and information and communications technology (ICT)/Knowledge Development.

This event was attended by many important guests, such as the National Minister of State Development Planning – Bpk. H. P.Suzetta, USAID Mission Director – Walter North, and Secretary General of the Ministry of Industry – Agus Tjahyana Wirakusumah. The primary objective of this event  was to present the results achieved by SENADA and lessons learned that they gained, including the benefits that have been received by SENADA stakeholders, from the government, industry, universities, associations and donors.

In this event, DyCode as a partner of SENADA represented by Andri Yadi, CEO of DyCode, provided some information about the impacts and benefits those are received by DyCode from SENADA project. Andri Yadi became one of the panelists in the "Accelerated Innovation" (“Inovasi Terpacu”) panel . Some of the information delivered by Andri Yadi was the explanation of how the program iMULAI innovation competition (the collaboration between Microsoft and SENADA) could stimulate the spirit of innovation, so that DyCode could achieved success. In that competition, DyCode with its PORTMAP was the first champion among so many participants from across Indonesia, a very brilliant achievement and it opens the highly opportunities of DyCode to compete in this industry.

DyCode is very thankful to SENADA. Hopefully, the innovation spirit triggered by SENADA and iMULAI will be sustainable in the future.
