Previously, the company focused on the middle to the upper segment as myBusiness users that has been running since 2004. In total, there are more than 20 thousand companies engaged with 2.4 million users.
"We're not yet targeting the lower middle segment in 2004, back then we thought they're still adequate with Telkomsel retail products such as SIM cards. However, two years ago we have begun to focus on this segment and finally launched the MyBusiness Store portal today," Arief Pradetya, Telkomsel's VP Enterprise Mobile Product Marketing said on Monday (7/23)
