August 18, 2020

Jakarta, 18 August 2020 - Amid the new normal phase that has been launched by the Jakarta government since last June, PT. Yanmar Diesel Indonesia (Head Office: Depok, Indonesia, President Director: Kai Yasuda), a subsidiary of Yanmar Co., Ltd., continues to renew their business plans in moving forward. For the sake of continuing to improve the ability of PT. Yanmar Diesel Indonesia (YADIN) personnel and continue to maintain their wellbeing in accordance with the health protocol, online training is commenced as an alternative to face-to-face training.

Prior to the online training, YADIN had been active in training the technicians and dealers directly through a training program called the Development Program. According to Mr. Jati Pralistyo as the leader of YADIN's CS team, "with the current condition of the COVID-19 outbreak and with the Large-Scale Restrictions (PSBB) regulation, to fill the Development Program vacancy, online training is regarded as the best solution for training while still following protocols".

The enthusiasm of the participants

This online training which has been held since June is intended for YADIN’s technicians and dealer technicians who deal directly with YANMAR product users. This program aims to increase capabilities and add insight related to product support used by the customers. With this program, it is expected that there will be world class technicians who are competent in terms of hard skills and soft skills.

During the training, "Google Classroom" is utilized as a substitute for face-to-face training. After taking attendance, a Pre-Test will be conducted to find out how seriously the trainees prepared for the training and to review the participants' shortcomings. Followed by explaining the purpose of the topic, delivery of material, Q&A session, and a Post-test to see the best performing participant of the day. After discussion of the Post-Test questions, the training will be closed by an evaluation from the participants.

The training material covering basic technical theory

The training material covers theories and systems such as basic mechanisms on how to read fuel, oil & water specifications; basic technical services, and computer-based practices. "Now, the online training only covers 3 of 9 modules (33%) of the total training that was planned. Through this online training, we hope our technicians and dealers could get the basic theories needed to serve customers professionally. In the future, we plan to provide assemble & disassemble video tutorials that can support direct technical training, "said Mr. Jati Pralistyo.

In addition to online training for technicians and dealers, YADIN also maximizes digital promotion activities to maintain relationships with customers. Every Friday, YADIN sends digital technical tips material such as banners and broadcasts via WhatsApp. In addition, YADIN also plans to provide interactive digital programs in the form of video tutorials such as how to use the GPS function on SmartAssist for users and dealers. The material will be uploaded online which will be accessible anytime, anywhere.

Through online training and digital promotion activities, PT. Yanmar Diesel Indonesia wants to prove that the Indonesian agricultural industry is advanced compared to the stigma circulating in the community regarding the lack of ability and competence of Indonesian farmers in the digital field. By commencing 360 communication from traditional to digital promotions, YADIN demonstrates a new spirit in the new normal era by being more creative and trying new ways of conveying messages from the company to various parties.

YADIN's decision to commence various online activities can be said as one of their innovations to develop the business and walk steadily with YANMAR's loyal customers. Along with this, PT. Yanmar Diesel Indonesia hopes that the COVID-19 pandemic should not be interpreted as a factor that caused a setback in YADIN's contribution to the development of Indonesian agriculture.
