What has been achieved by the Corporate in ten months is certainly inseparable from the role of Budiyanto Darmastono as a President Director, as well as the brain behind many achievement achieved by SAP Express. And, of course, one of its contributions is to bravely carry the Android technology which later became the main exellence of SAP.
"In the beginning of SAP Express, I don't want it just to be a usual courier service business. I want a different courier than the current courier. Finally I learned, looking for a different way, which didn't exist yet. Finally SAP Express was formed which was inspired by a sophisticated system from US, ," he said.
