Market Entry Support

Entering Indonesian markets can be challenging for companies from around the world. The Indonesian business climate is still complex despite many reforms that have been undertaken over the last few years. Even internationally experienced companies will only prosper if they have a persevering business manner, forward-thinking investment plans and the necessary balance of global capability and regional adaptability.

PRIME Consultancy is specialized in assisting foreign corporate investors when entering Indonesian markets. A good starting point for a discussion with us is when your company is in need for a stronger local presence than only having an appointed agent on the ground. Assessing diligently if a representative office is already serving immediate needs or setting up a limited liablility company (PMA) with a properly chosen business line (KBLI) is needed is of utmost importance. In certain cases it might be mandatory to involve a local partner, which is another challenge in the establishment process that needs special attention. Our experience over years setting up companies and representative offices with a competent implementation team assures that the needs of our clients are attended to at all times during such establishments.

The founder of PRIME Consultancy, Jochen Sautter, supported over 160 market development projects during his time as Managing Director of The German Centre Indonesia, a business incubator tailor-made for especially medium-sized. Multinational as well as smaller companies can nowadays benefit from the deeply rooted experience, network and intercultural knowledge of PRIME Consultancy.

The Predictive Index

The Predictive Index are a package of behavioural assessment tools that can assist companies as part of their human resources department, whether to recruit new hires for positions, finding the perfect candidates, assess employees' job peformance or undergo internal restructuring. 

The Predictive Index assessments are scientifically validated as a result of hundreds of studies conducted for over 50 years, delivering accurate results that are easy to analyse. Assessments only take minutes to complete online and are available in many languages, including Braille.  


Those are the PI tools that we like using:

PI Job Assessment (PI JA), which is an online questionnaire helping empoyers defining the job description and the associated personality profile matching this job i.e., a person who will be motivated and thrive in this job

PI Behavioral Assessment (PI BA), which is a psychometric personality profiling tool, measuring individual motivational factors and work-related behaviour associated herewith

PI Cognitive Assessment (PI CA), whichis a cognitive test system, measuring the individual’s ability to acquire new knowledge on the job


In fact, behavioural and cognitive assessments are an important part of a recruting process in order to gain as much information possible from job candidates that are often not seen in the conventional recruiting process (eg. one-on-one interviews). According to Harvard Business Review, as much as 80% of employee turnover is due to bad hiring decisions!
