What kind of business do you do? Please share an overview.
Otoklix provides an O2O solution to digitize the automotive aftermarket. On one side, we provide a platform for car owners to conveniently handle their car maintenance from monitoring their car health, book services through our network of over 1,000 workshops across the Greater Jakarta Area with transparent and consistent pricing. On another side, we provide SCM solutions for workshops to source procurement parts directly from manufacturers for greater cost efficiency.
How did you feel when you received the Forbes Indonesia 30 under 30 award? What is your next plan after achieving this award?
It is definitely an honour to be nominated as Forbes 30 under 30. However, I believe I should not be too head over heels because there will be greater expectations going forward. I want to continue to look into the long-term goal rather than be too focused on the short-term milestone. The long-term goal is to become the leader in the automotive aftermarket in SEA, similar to how we view Traveloka in travel, Alodokter for health, and Gojek/Grab for food delivery; we hope when you think about automotive, Otoklix will be your first thought.
What was the best thing about Sekolah Ciputra? Tell us something memorable from your time at Sekolah Ciputra.
Two things I will never forget from Ciputra: (1) DBL and (2) Camping.
(1) I remember how we practiced every day to get closer to the DBL Championship, the bond between each other is irreplaceable (although we fell short in the final 4).
(2) Camping is definitely something I really miss. How we had to cook our own authentic food (we cannot use canned foods), slept in tents that might have rocks in the back. Sometimes we reminisce about those times and hope to return to them someday.
In what way has the school contributed to who you are right now?
I truly believe that Sekolah Ciputra’s focus in providing the curriculum for students to challenge themselves in analyzing case studies, looking into real-world problems, and creating a presentation out of it is truly amazing. It absolutely helps a lot in your professional life, as you view things differently and try to challenge yourself in viewing something in a different way.
