It’s not always quiet and peaceful like this

The year-end holiday is approaching but Indonesian startup scene shows no sign slowing down.

The following are some of the announcements made this week that e27 managed to gather:

Amazon Prime Video

The online video streaming platform arm of the e-commerce giant had just announced that it is expanding to 200 countries, Indonesia being one of them.

Championing original series such as Top Gear’s “reincarnation” The Grand Tour, the service will be available for Indonesian viewers for US$2.99 during promotional period.

It will be a serious contender to Netflix, which entered the market earlier this year –with controversies trailing behind. There are also several Asia-based platforms such as iflix, HOOQ, and Viu.

Karir.com

One of the country’s earliest career platform, Karir.com announced two new features during the same day.

The first one will be an online interview feature, which allow jobseekers and employers to conduct recorded or live video interviews. The feature is meant to ease employers in managing interviews, while also enabling employers from other cities or even countries to search for talent in Indonesia. It will be formally launched in 2017.

The second one is the Salary Benchmark 2.0, a feature which enables jobseekers to research for salary range within various industries, as well as a mortgage installment calculator. For the mortgage installment calculator, Karir.com is working together with Rumah123 as a non-exclusive partner.

Karir.com has been acquired by EMTEK Group in February 2015.

Jojonomic

One can no longer lie to their boss about their whereabouts as Jojonomic has refined its new Digital Attendance feature, launched last month to complement its personal financial management and employee reimbursement features.

Implementing face recognition feature with biometric fraud detection system, the new feature will allow managers to see GPS location and track employees’ attendance through a dashboard. The face recognition technology helps ensure that the person submitting the attendance is the exact same person as recorded in the company’s human resource database.

“Fraud detection system will also detect if user is trying to play tricks with fake GPS or if they try to cheat the working hours. The system will also detect if users are logging in from different devices,” explained Jojonomic CEO Indrasto Budisantoso.

The startup has hinted about launching the new feature since securing their US$1.5 million funding led by Maloekoe Ventures.
