Some of the product innovations which are not possessed by other operators have been launched some time ago and now have just entered into the market, those are Groovia TV and Delima. Groovia TV is an internet protocol-based TV (IPTV) having various features enabling subscribers to record, pause and rewind their TV program and equipped with such facilities as video on demand (VoD), game on line, even karaoke. These services have started to be operated in several locations in Jakarta, Bandung and in some other big cities later on. Delima (Delivery Money Access) is an easily remittance service from Telkom. Delima provides facility for the society who wants to send money any where. “Send money via Delima is as easy as send an SMS,” Eddy Kurnia explains. Presence of the products above has completed the existing ones like Speedy, SpeedyFlash, Flexi and other TelkomGroup products.

In relation with the award of The Best Corporation for Risk Management, Eddy Kurnia explained that to realize some ethical practices of Good Corporate Governance reliably and responsibly, Telkom has applied e-procurement/e-auction and implemented management vendor module in the bidding process of goods and services. “Through the e-procurement/e-auction, physical contact between vendors/partners and the bidding committee is minimized and all bids are made computerized so as to support transparency for all vendors to get the same information,” Eddy Kurnia explained.
