Telkom Indonesia Releases Asia Pacific’s First Bundle Package for SMEs to Facilitate Digital Transformation

[Barcelona, Spain] Telkom Indonesia (“Telkom”) and Huawei held a joint press conference at MWC Barcelona 2024, during which they released the first Bundle Package for small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Asia Pacific. This package aims to provide the best products and services for SMEs in Indonesia to help them accelerate digital transformation. Attendees at the conference included FM Venusiana R, Director of Enterprise & Business Service of Telkom; Michael Ma, Vice President of Huawei, President of ICT Product Portfolio Management & Solution; and Jennifer Zhang, CTO of Carrier XtoB Marketing & Solution Sales Dept., Huawei.

According to Statistics Indonesia, the income of small, and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) accounts for 99% of Indonesia’s gross domestic product (GDP). These enterprises play a key role in driving innovation, increasing exports, and promoting social inclusion. However, they face many challenges in digital transformation, such as numerous application scenarios, complex requirements, difficult maintenance, and high risks. To address these challenges, Telkom and Huawei jointly launched the first Bundle Package for SMEs in the Asia Pacific region. The Bundle Package is cost-effective, and easy to launch and manage. It features a wealth of industry-leading offerings and flexible options for a wide range of application scenarios. MSMEs can customize their own Bundle Packages based on their unique requirements so that they can maximize efficiency gains from their digital transformation.

During the conference, the two companies explained that the Bundle Package focuses on four key scenarios: retail chains, hotels, real estate, and education campuses. They said that this upgraded and converged package includes leading products and services such as converged private lines, Wi-Fi services, cloud services, and an intelligent video management and analytics platform, as well as related installation services.

FM Venusiana R said that Telkom has a high share in the SME market and that the Bundle Package for SEMs that was jointly launched by Telkom and Huawei is an innovative combination of competitive new products, such as Managed Wi-Fi, an intelligent video management and analytics platform, and cloud services. She added that the inclusion of the intelligent platform which was commercially used in Indonesia for the first time has greatly improved the competitiveness of the Bundle Package. The Package is designed to help SMEs in different industries become more competitive by improving their management efficiency and reducing their operating costs. It is estimated that the Bundle Package will attract about 420,000 users over the next three years. 40% of existing users are expected to switch to the Bundle Package and 20% of them will be new customers.

Michael Ma, Vice President of Huawei, President of ICT Product Portfolio Management & Solution, said: “In December 2023, Huawei and Telkom signed a strategic cooperation framework contract with three goals: to drive growth in B2B, cloud, and data center businesses; to evolve towards target intelligent network-cloud networks; and to cultivate ICT talent. The Bundle Package that was jointly developed by Huawei and Telkom is a one-stop converged ICT solution designed for MSMEs in Indonesia. The launch of the Package is a key milestone in our partnership in the B2B field. It is also an important step in Huawei’s close collaboration with carriers to deploy B2B solutions in Indonesia. Going forward, we will continue to work closely with Telkom to explore strategic opportunities presented by enterprise digital transformation in areas such as cloud, big data, and intelligence. We are committed to customizing more ICT services and solutions to help Indonesian enterprises improve their operational efficiency and competitiveness.”

Telkom has long been committed to becoming a leading and innovative digital solution provider in Indonesia and delivering value for customers by driving continuous growth. The launch of the Bundle Package is part of the long-standing commitment of both Telkom and Huawei. It will promote the digital transformation of SMEs, create new employment opportunities, and drive economic prosperity. Telkom will continue to work with Huawei to develop new technologies, products, and applications and launch bundle packages that are more suitable for the local market to drive economic growth in Indonesia.

MWC Barcelona 2024 will be held from February 26 to February 29 in Barcelona, Spain. During the event, Huawei will showcase its latest products and solutions at stand 1H50 in Fira Gran Via Hall 1.
