Universitas Teknokrat Indonesia (UTI) Asean’s Best PTS always innovates and works according to its motto, namely discipline, quality, creative and innovative.
The development of industry and technology has provided unlimited space and opportunities for human activities. Advances in information and communication technology have pushed the world of marketing to transform from conventional models to digital ones. Disruption of technology and shifting shopping trends also play a role in changing consumer behavior. Conventional shopping activities, which require consumers to visit physical store buildings directly, are starting to be reduced by the existence of digital-based stores.
The development of digital-based industries also has an impact on the demand cycle for consumer goods where initially goods and money can only meet in the market, but now demand for goods can be integrated into an e-commerce system. Our application also offers convenience for consumers and producers, where distance and time are no longer the main problem in transactions.
Along with the development of the industrial sector in Indonesia, e-commerce such as our application is able to change consumer behavior in meeting their daily needs, including raw food products such as rice, fruit, vegetables, meat, fish and eggs. Although the existence of conventional markets is still the main reference for consumers to obtain fresh food.
Among the economic spheres, there is the development of technology that can be an opportunity for the agricultural, plantation, livestock and fishery sectors. “Our application is oriented to being able to connect farmers and traders with consumers directly,” said Siti and the team that created this application.
The application by students of the Universitas Teknocrat Indonesia, whose Campus is Green the Champion, Bakul.Kita (Online Shopping Platform Platform) aims to connect farmers, wholesalers with various types of businesses and end-users. This application is also compatible with the User Experience Design course which is taught in one of the subjects courses that must be taken, explained Siti and Tim.
