Xintesa and the EODB Website
This blog post isn’t about Ayo Responsive and Xintesa being approached by a department within the Indonesian Government for developing a website called ‘The Ease of Doing Business in Indonesia’, which by itself; was an opportunity that we where very grateful for receiving. A project led by a very demanding (not a bad thing) client and with an equally aggressive timeline to completion.
No! This post is more about expressing mucho thanks to my Indonesian Website Development Partners, Xintesa. They rocked this gig all the way to a rather impressive ‘socialisation event’ where we hobnobbed with a few Indonesian high-ranking political dignitaries.
Ayo has been working with its preferred website development partner, Xintesa, for sometime now and with each project the Guys ‘N’ Gals have never failed to impress me, both with their formidable skill-sets and professionalism. I know a few “British” outfits that could learn a thing or two with regard work ethic from Xintesa. That’s Eka and Ifan, proudly posing next to our collective work in the above photo.
When living in the UK, I felt as if I was spoilt for choice when it came to selecting web developers so when I first arrived in Jakarta, one of the first things I knew I had to do was find a local development company who equalled the teams I was used to working with in the UK, after all, I didn’t want standards to drop.

Language problems would prove an issue to begin with because most of my clients are based in the UK. The importance of making a brief completely understood by my Indonesian based developers was vital but as my command of Bahasa Indonesia improved and also finding more and more English speaking local techies to communicate with, the obstacles began to fall away.
I seemed to hit a plateau with regard my learning Bahasa and I couldn’t afford to have briefs misunderstood so I decided that I would seek out only fluent English speaking ‘dev’ teams to work and build relationships with.
To cut a long story short, finding Xintesa was a God send, so much so that I started to work less and less with other teams in favour of the shear pleasure of working with Xintesa. Today? Well…I won’t trust anyone but Xintesa with my…(ehem) OUR website delivery projects.
The EODB website recently went live to a certain amount of official fanfare. It was good to see Dr. Ir. Wahyu Utomo, MS. and his colleagues up on the stage. Pak Wahyu lead the project with aplomb. I do hope we will be able to continue supporting him and his excellent team with regard the growth and evolution of the EODB website.
To Xintesa – Pak Wima, Pak Ifan, Ibu Eka – thank you. Ready for the next? 😉
