Acceleration Through Collaboration: Telkomsel IoT and Alfamart to Transform Indonesia’s Retail Industry

As a pioneer of the transformation within industry sectors in Indonesia, Telkomsel IoT proudly announced a partnership with a retail chain company, Alfamart. In this collaboration, Telkomsel IoT takes part in Alfamart’s digital transformation journey by providing more value through the implementation of the latest and reliable digital technology, Telkomsel IoT Managed SD-WAN. 

Telkomsel IoT Managed SD-WAN transforms Alfamart’s WAN infrastructure by installing new routers, all configurable through the main device orchestrator at the head office. Furthermore, the Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP) feature allows Alfamart’s WAN hardware to be automatically configured into the new cloud-based ecosystem, minimizing technical issues from human error. Let’s see how this technology can improve Alfamart’s overall daily operations.

Easier Management

Managed SD-WAN connects hardware at Alfamart stores and branch offices to the data center at the head office through a cloud network, accessible via monitoring dashboard to watch over every operation in all locations. The bandwidth allocation can also be configured according to the desired data transfer needs and priorities.

Secure, Unified Connection

Combined with Alfamart’s existing connectivity technology access, Managed SD-WAN can build and maintain the connection between the central data center, hub data center, and stores or branch offices more effectively and efficiently.

Less Technical Issues

The direct connection between the central data center and hardware at stores or branch offices enables Alfamart to avoid technical issues at the hub data center which could interfere with business operations.

Instant Deployment

Utilizing Zero-Touch Provisioning, the corporate policy and antivirus will be updated immediately without having to configure the devices installed on each store. This allows Alfamart to deploy the devices instantly.

Lower Operational Cost

Managed SD-WAN’s overall management will be handled by Telkomsel IoT, therefore Alfamart will no longer need to control and monitor their devices which requires a high operational cost.

Telkomsel IoT SD-WAN manages the network traffic in every store efficiently, thanks to 4G LTE technology. In SD-WAN networks, 4G LTE plays an important role in improving business operations and communications by streamlining switching and monitoring, providing diverse redundancy for broadband connections, faster provisioning, and saving cost up to 50% compared with the traditional connection.

With Telkomsel IoT Managed SD-WAN, Alfamart is now able to improve its business performance while maintaining the operational cost during the pandemic and the new normal era. This is one of many proofs that IoT implementation supports companies to adapt to new situations while maintaining productivity securely and efficiently. Goes beyond optimizing the company’s whole operation, this strategic initiative can also accelerate the digitalization across sectors which will reinforce Indonesia’s commitment towards the Industry 4.0

Telkomsel IoT Managed SD-WAN brought a positive impact to Alfamart’s transformational journey in growing their business further and serve their customers better. More than that, the collaboration between these two leading companies can inspire other retail companies in Indonesia to adopt the latest IoT technology.
