Dewi Gontha, President Director of Java Festival Production comments: “We joined Grivy.com as we were looking for a new online brand distribution & promotion channel that creates buzz in the market and has the potential to let our brand and festival go viral. Grivy is offering that solution. We are impressed by the progress Grivy has made so far in terms of getting superb customer feedback and we definitely would like to extend our cooperation for the years to come.”
How it works
Grivy.com offers its user the option to bid for deals in Jakarta and soon in other Indonesian cities. Its current offering include dining packages, hotel vouchers and beauty deals. More deals are added daily.
Users can discover deals and join auctions with a single click. After seeing the current bid and which other users have participated in the auction, the end-user can place their own bid. Although most of the excitement happens in the last minutes and seconds, users can get a notification if they are overbid by another user.
The auction mechanism is simple. Joining auctions and placing bids is free of charge (no advance credits need to be purchased) so those that don’t win don’t lose. User can increase their bids, with a minimum of IDR 10,000 as long as the auction runs. A split second before the auctions finishes the system will take the last submitted bid. When a user happens to be the highest bidder then this person will win the deal, guaranteed.
Java Jazz Festival
For the first time in history, people can join the Java Jazz auctions and decide themselves how much they would like to bid for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday Festival tickets (March 6, 7, 8). Each auction, which runs for about two hours and a half, represents two entry passes. With a normal selling price of almost IDR 1 million (2 tickets) people get very excited to see Java Jazz auctions open at Rp 10,000. There are stories of people winning JJF ticket auctions at IDR 50,000, how lucky can one be? The Java Jazz auctions run until 27th February 2015.
Jan Oudeman, founder and CEO of Grivy.com comments: “We are honored to cooperate with such a well-known global brand as Java Jazz Festival Production. What started as a one-man company has now grown to over 15 employees which are fully committed to offer our end-users a fun and exciting way to discover and buy amazing deals at a price on which they decide themselves”.
Although the startup is still in its early stages, people living in Jakarta and beyond can expect many more deals in coming months. The company just raised investment from some well-known Indonesian family offices and has ambitious plans to become the market leader for travel & leisure auctions in Asia.
