Jalin Supports Community Digitization Acceleration Through the “Bangga Wisata Indonesia” (BWI) Program and Jalin Smart Library
Jalin’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program this year focuses on supporting social programs that aim to accelerate digitization at every step of Indonesian society, in line with the tagline “In every step of your digital way” used in the company’s fifth anniversary.
The realization is accomplished through two major programs: supporting the BWI program run by the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy, and building the Jalin Smart Library at the Sekolah Alam Tunas Mulia in Bantar Gebang. The two social programs are part of a five-year journey achievement celebration of Jalin’s support for Indonesia’s digital payment system and the realization of an inclusive financial ecosystem.
Reviving the Passion of the Tourism Industry Through the BWI Program
The BWI program is one of the government’s initiatives, spearheaded by the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy (Kemenparekraf), aimed at reviving the domestic tourism industry, which has been harmed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The BWI program has been in execution since October 7, 2021, with a travel incentive scheme for MPV (Vaccine Recipient Communities).
The public who has received two vaccination doses can receive a benefit (one-time use) in the form of a discount when purchasing specific tour packages. The benefit is available through 75 registered channel partners and specific destinations (Bali, Jakarta, Riau Islands, and Yogyakarta).
Jalin provides a web-based hub adapter platform and API to provide seamless access so that all users involved can connect and communicate with each other without major issues. As a result, MPVs that want to travel can receive government incentives smoothly, which will have an indirect impact on the tourism industry.
The platform developed can be used to manage work programs, channel partner registration and verification, tour package registration, validation of MPV data via the Peduli Lindungi application, the process of reporting transactions for purchasing tour packages by MPV, processing stimulus claims from Channeling Partners to the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy, and the stimulus disbursement process.
VP Corporate Secretary of PT Jalin Payment Nusantara Christianus K. Panjisasongko hopes that this reactivation program for the tourism industry can provide a multiplier effect on economic recovery by two times in priority areas of tourism destinations. In addition, the developed platform hoped can continue to be used by Kemenparekraf/other Ministries for stimulus programs that have similar functions as a form of Jalin’s contribution to the national economic recovery.
Aside from Jalin, other agencies that collaborate to support the BWI program include PT ENCPRO as program operations, PT Blend Media as program consultant, Peduli Lindungi as MPV data validator, Bank Mandiri as stimulus disbursement infrastructure provider, and 75 Travel Agencies as Channel Partners.
Establishing Digitization in Every Step of the Country’s Children Through Jalin a Smart Library
In addition to providing support for the BWI program, Jalin also assisted in the construction of the Jalin Smart Library at the Tunas Mulia Alam School in Bantar Gebang, which will provide Indonesian children with unlimited digital access.
The provided support comes from the synergy between Jalin and employee donations consisting of library renovation, provision of PC devices, internet network, procurement of hundreds of physical and digital books through e-library subscriptions, to other learning support tools such as tables and chairs.
The inauguration of the Jalin Smart Library coincided with the celebration of Jalin’s fifth anniversary on November 19, 2021. This inauguration was carried out directly by Boyke Yurista as President Director of PT Jalin Payment Nusantara and Juwarto as Chair of the Tunas Mulia Alam School Foundation at the Jalin5ary celebration.
Christianus said that the Jalin Smart Library program remains consistent with the non-cash payment education program that has been promoted on a regular basis for the past three years. “This is an example of Jalin’s contribution to introducing a non-cash transaction lifestyle to children at a young age through digital channels. The goal is to instill new, healthier, and safer purchasing habits.” added Christianus.
Jalin had also provided similar assistance to students at the school the previous year. The assistance included projectors, hundreds of e-money cards, and non-cash payment e-learning videos to support teaching and learning activities.
