I Nyoman Prana Jaya Semedi, a student of the S1 Management Study Program, School of Economics and Business (FEB) Telkom University who won a gold medal at GEMASTIK XIV explained that he was starting a business that focuses on recording and collecting pet data with a microchip.
“The business that I developed is intended to help the community and veterinarians, especially in Bali where animal data collection is still very rarely done, this animal data collection is useful in the proof of animal ownership, recording animal health history, animal sterilization, and vaccination especially rabies vaccination considering the case of rabies in Indonesia. Bali is high in Indonesia.” Obviously.
Prana explained that the microchip used is a special pet microchip that already has a special standard ISO-11784/11785, where the microchip will be injected into the animal’s body using RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology.
“Later on, through the microchip, it can be scanned so that it displays the microchip number, through the microchip number it can be inputted into a web database which will display information on animal data and owners that have been previously registered into the database on the website,” he said.
Prana said that this business has been prepared since 1 year ago, where this business was indeed prepared for his own business, and hopes that this concept can be accepted in the community and more widely used by WWF organizations, zoos, wildlife protection foundations, and even livestock.
“I did prepare this business concept for the business that I will be running, but because there was an opportunity to be included in the competition so I decided to submit it to GEMASTIK XIV, in the future I will develop the data system again to make it more complex, pet shop and veterinary services and mobile application development.”
