With a growing population of over 240 million, Indonesia is developing at a tremendous rate particularly for infrastructure and rapid urbanization. The Government of Indonesia is planning to spend $450 billion between now until 2020. This could be seen in the some of the newsreported recently whereby the Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing (PUPR) highlights the importance of maintaining, improving connectivity of road infrastructure, with a huge focus on massive toll road projects in the infrastructure and utilities sector, like the Balikpapan-Samari
WORKING HAND IN HAND Throughout ALl Construction Phases
With such a huge potential growth & projects planned, the local government and construction companies will definitely need all the help to manage their projects across various construction phases. In situations like these, companies should look for an established solution provider, who not only has the technical knowledge and experience in overseas project, but also the capability to understand the local market.
SO WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?
Time is something everyone can never get enough of. We have to get to meetings on time, we have to clock in working hours, we need to be strict about our deadlines. This fixation on time can be a real pain if you are working in a fast pace society like Indonesia. If you are a project manager working in Jakarta, you have one more additional time wasting issue that you need to deal with everyday - Traffic. Traffic can be a killer in Indonesia. Project managers tend to waste a lot of time travelling from office to construction sites. This also results in time wastage to prepare, generating reports and carry out inspection checks.
Example 1: The actual time its takes to finish a detailed report is 1 day, but in reality, due to communicating, compiling, travelling time and bad traffic, reports will take 3 to 4 times longer to be generated.
Example 2: Imagine if you are a site engineer who needs to carry out quality control/inspection checks, and you need to capture, record, report & rectify defects. On top of that, you need to worry about traffic conditions. Rectifying 1 defect takes 1 week instead of 1 day
We don't even need to talk about the cost wastage due to time wastage.
Thankfully, we are here to help!
