QLue

Jakarta-based smart city app developer Qlue has earlier announced that it is raising funds from GDP Venture which is led by Martin Hartono.

Although the investment figure was not disclosed, the funding was said to be the biggest that the startup has earned compared to its preceding rounds.

Previously, in May 2016, Qlue has raised more than US$1 million in its Series A funding round from angel investor Arya Setiadharma via his investment firm Prasetia Dwidharma and consultant firm Juvisk.

With the funding, Qlue is reportedly looking to recruit new talents, diversify its product, and strengthen its smart city services.

Starting from generating the reporting system of special citizens in the area, Qlue has now developed into a smart city platform for civic engagement. The startup provides its solution through an app available for citizens to actively report and share civic issues in their neighborhood to city authorities and enterprises.

To date, the startup has established its presence in 9 Indonesian cities, facilitating various needs such as report filing system, security, and many others. It is also in collaboration with other governmental institutions such as the National Disaster Management Authority (BNPB) and the National Police.

In June, Qlue also invested in tech developer Nodeflux in an effort to complement Qlue’s services by providing the technology that enables devices to become smarter.

Besides its smart city solutions, Qlue also offer management solutions for enterprises including Quack, a collaboration tool for employees and managers to solve issues efficiently and Qluster, a billing and residents’ report management tools for property developers.
