At the beginning of participating in the Anaplan certification up to Level 3 Model Builder, Saurama Dimas Maulana followed every stage, starting from Level 1 Model Builder.
At Level 1, he learns the basics of Anaplan starting from the basic modules and the basic material for the features in Anaplan. After Level 1 is finished, he proceeds to Level 2 Model Builder. Level 2 is already starting to be difficult because it starts to make reporting formulas from scratch. "At level 1 we have provided a template and we just need to complete it," said Dimas.
For Level 3 Model Builder, this is specifically for vendors because at level 3 we are given a case like we are working on a project on a client. “In this Model Builder Level 3 certification, we are given a mini project and its documents. Here we are like working on a project in a company complete with documentation of problems from the company,” said Dimas.
In Level 3 Model Builder, we analyze what the company's needs are through the cases given in a story. "So here we are like meeting with clients who need reports for their companies and all of that is based on stories," said Dimas.
For the level of difficulty, Level 3 Model Builder feels more difficult than the previous level. In Level 3, based on Dimas, are required to know the business process of the company that is the case we are working on.
From this certification, Dimas admitted that it was very helpful in its implementation to work. One of them is how Dimas can understand the client's wishes. "Like during user stories, we can ask the points that clients need when we are working on a project," said Dimas.
In addition, Dimas also added that from this certification he also knows his best practice in building Anaplan according to the methodology in the Anaplan Way.
Dimas said that he hoped to be able to share the knowledge he gained with colleagues in the Anaplan ED-SEN Consulting project team. "I want to share the knowledge I got from this certification for friends who are new to the ED-SEN Consulting project team so that the team can run with the same knowledge," Dimas said.
The Anaplan certification program itself is a program from ED-SEN Consulting as the official partner of Anaplan in Indonesia. In this program, the Anaplan project team is required to take the certification to have in-depth knowledge of Anaplan. This certification also helps facilitate the performance of the team that implements Anaplan on the client. In addition, so that the certified Anaplan project team has the feasibility to implement Anaplan in companies that are clients of ED-SEN Consulting.
Tetuko Adi : Anaplan is a Fairly Complete Tool Because Everything can be done from Planning to Financial Analysis
Friend of Edsen, the competition in the food and beverage industry or better known as the catering industry is currently experiencing disruptions in its sales plan. In the past, we can fully rely on the requirements of distribution channels.
Now that we have undergone a transformation, we must be able to see directly and quickly the changes in consumer demand from time to time. The emergence of the online market also requires many entrepreneurs/producers to be more sensitive and respond quickly to changes in patterns/trends in certain community groups within a certain period of time.
To discuss this, ED-SEN Consulting held a Webinar with the theme:
Optimizing Your Product Selling Strategy With Cloud ERP Data Integration.
Please join our webinar at the following link.
Friend of Edsen, Indirect spending accounts for a large portion of a company’s budget, and those that make a point of managing their spending in this area can see equally large savings.
According to a 2014 report from EY, optimizing indirect spending can reduce costs by as much as 25%. But it’s about more than cost reduction. Paying more attention to the quality, and value of products and services that fall under indirect spending can strengthen company operations, improve the quality and reliability of the products and services you deliver to customers, and reduce your risk exposure.
For high-growth companies, the issue can be particularly critical, because they tend to be staffed by people who wear multiple hats and seldom have the benefit of well-developed policies and procedures. As the company expands, the vendor contracts they sign grow bigger, the list of purchases grows longer, and the costs and risks can quickly spiral out of control.
Coupa is here to empower companies around the world with the visibility and control they need to shop smarter and safer.
Coupa's Business Spend Management (BSM) platform provides powerful capabilities for everyone in your company, your power users, and your suppliers to perform all of their business spending activities in one place.
ED-SEN Consulting and Coupa held a webinar with the theme "How to Maximize the Value of Your Spending?" on August 12, 2021.

Getting awards and achievements for the best marketer category is a joy for Meli Yunita, Marketing Officer at ED-SEN Consulting. For her this is a surprise in 2021 that makes Meli even more motivated to make an even better contribution to the company.
"This award makes me want to work even better in the future, I want to make a bigger contribution to the company," said Meli.
Meli is an alumnus of Indonesia literature at Yogyakarta State University. Joined the Marketing Division of Edsen Consulting in 2018.
Meli said that last year was a tough challenge at work due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Usually before the pandemic, the Marketing Department held an offline event by inviting clients to introduce Edsen Consulting services.
During the pandemic, little has changed in the way marketing works. We have become accustomed to making online events such as webinars and inviting customers to introduce what services ED-SEN Consulting.
“Initially, we were still adjusting to the work pattern from offline to online. During the Pandemic, we in marketing turned to webinars. I started learning how to use Zoom, Teams, and other online platforms. said Meli.
For the level of difficulty, Meli said, to offer Edsen Consulting services to customers, the marketing team usually does follow-up from the database obtained from webinars. "One by one, we usually follow up data from webinars so that they can become leads and are followed up by the sales team," said Meli.
Early joining Edsen Consulting Meli admitted that she made a lot of adjustments and learned about the company's business. I read a lot of company profiles and studied how Edsen Consulting runs its business. "Besides studying company profiles, I also study companies that are the business targets of Edsen Consulting," said Meli.
Meli said that before entering the world of marketing, she had experience as a salesperson at a bank. Then Meli also had experience as a Customer Service before finally becoming a marketing as it is now.
Being a Marketing at Edsen Consulting was the first experience for Meli. She previously used to offer services with a B2C (Business to Consumer) business model. But at Edsen Consulting, Meli gets a new challenge because Edsen Consulting offers business services with a B2B business model. (Business to Business).
“If it's a B2C business model I can immediately get an answer whether they are willing to buy our products. For the B2B business model, we usually can't immediately get a decision whether the client will buy or use the services of Edsen Consulting." Meli said.
It is hoped that in the future, Meli plans to participate in training that can support her daily work. She admitted that she wanted to take part in digital marketing and event management seminars or training.
“I want to improve my skills and abilities in the marketing department so that I can support my work. I hope that every year there should be new skills and abilities that I can get,” said Meli.
