Raden Panji Mahardika or familiarly called Panji is one of the 9 recipients of the ED-SEN Consulting Award and Achievement. Panji received an Award in the Best Young Achiever category for his achievements in 2020.
Panji did not expect to get this award, because he felt that there were many other project teams who gave more contribution than me. But Panji also admitted that he was happy because the company had appreciated what he had been doing so far.
"This award makes me more motivated to do better on the projects I work on. I want to make an even bigger contribution to ED-SEN Consulting. "
Panji said that when he first got into the project, he adjusted more to accounting systems such as financial reports. He admitted that he learned a lot with his teammates in the Iqbal and Febra projects.
However, as time went on, Panji began to understand the accounting system. "At first I didn't really understand what balance sheet, profit and loss are, for that I asked Mas Iqbal a lot about these terms so that I would have a first picture before discussing them with clients," said Panji.
When he first worked on the Anaplan project at one of the decacorn startup companies in Indonesia, initially Panji admitted that he was quite difficult. But thanks to a solid project team and always providing solutions when he was having difficulties, finally Panji was able to work on this Anaplan project with the team. "From the client side, luckily it's also cooperative, so it's better to do it," said Panji.
For teamwork, Panji feels that the project he is working on is easier to do with a team of 3 people. “From an accounting perspective, I don't understand anything, usually Mas Iqbal is a good friend for discussions to find solutions. The three of us can complement each other, "said Panji.
Adjustment of work during the Covid-19 Pandemic from Work From Office to Work From Home was not an obstacle for Panji in working on the Anaplan project at the company. Every day, Panji and his team coordinate with the team from the company to report on the progress of the project.
Apart from being a startup company, Decacorn in Indonesia, currently Panji is also part of the project team that implements Anaplan in a financial service and automotive rental company. Panji admitted that even though he was not involved in this project from the start, he had to quickly adapt to other teams. The presence of Pak Firman as Project Manager (PM) helped Panji a lot in working on this project.
When he first entered ED-SEN Consulting, Panji said that he had not yet imagined what kind of project he would work on. After several weeks of joining, Panji began to learn about Anaplan. For one month he studied until he took Anaplan certification.
After I finished studying and took Anaplan certification, I began to be trusted to work on the Anaplan project at one of the decacorn startup companies in Indonesia. "I am happy to be trusted by the company to work on the project, although I have no idea what the project will be like," said Panji.
Panji hopes that in the future he wants to further deepen Anaplan to the level of Master Anaplaner. I want to take certification up to Anaplaner Masters level. "In Anaplan there are several levels, such as the Bulider Model level, Solution Architect, up to the highest level, namely Master Anaplaner. So I hope to get to that level, "said Panji.
To get to that level, Panji has been exploring Anaplan a lot. In addition, Panji also often asks people who are more knowledgeable about Anaplan.
Panji said that the beginning of his liking for technology began when he was in junior high school. At that time, Panji was very interested in cellphone technology. His interest in technology became stronger when Panji was in college. Panji took the Informatics Management major for a Diploma then continued with the Information Systems major to take his bachelor's degree.
ED-SEN Consulting became the first company for Panji. Becoming a consultant at ED-SEN Consulting was her first work experience. When he first entered ED-SEN Consulting, Panji felt it was not too difficult to make adjustments. "Because I have an IT background when I was on campus, so when I started the work of designing it wasn't too difficult and everything I got in college could be applied in the company."
Panji also has hopes that in the future ED-SEN Consulting will be better known as a Consultant partnering with Anaplan. So if there is a company that is looking for Anaplan Partner in Indonesia, the name ED-SEN Consulting will be the consultant chosen as the consultant that implements Anaplan in the company.
