This partnership is part of ‘SATU Karya,’ the latest initiative from Microsoft Indonesia, which facilitates cross-industry collaboration in Indonesia to create an integrated digital ecosystem and realize Indonesia’s digital economy potential. 

Pos Indonesia President Director Faizal Rochmad Djoemadi said, “I warmly welcome the collaboration between Pos Indonesia and Microsoft Indonesia.
