Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) play a significant part in Indonesia's economic growth. In 2018, SMEs alone contributed over US$600 trillion, which is over 57% of Indonesia's GDP. Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, this productivity has been crippled to the point where consumers spending has declined, which ultimately resulted in many of these businesses gone bust. This decline was largely attributed to the restricted movement to the premises of these largely offline SMEs.
Rokaru aims to alleviate this problem by bringing these businesses to the consumers, instead of the other way around by providing these businesses a digital platform where they can sell their goods virtually. Unlike neighboring apps, Rokaru was designed to have a simple and user-friendly interface without user-confusing features.
Rokaru was made by Team 👁👄👁, which consists of myself, Andrew Cen, and Andrew Martin Tan, and won first place in the 2020 BINUS School of Computer Science Hackathon. Here's our presentation video about Rokaru (in Bahasa Indonesia):
