“The Corona outbreak did indeed make the market very lethargic and also made plans for the launch of some of our latest products to be delayed or delayed until an undetermined time,” he said via e-mail received by the Gadgetren team this morning (03/27/2020).
To decrease sales of ASUS products, Firman explained that ASUS did not know because there was no accurate data or the latest updates from research institutions such as IDC or GfK. “There is no statistical data we have obtained so far. Maybe the trend can be seen just like in the next 1-2 months, “he said.
However, ASUS itself has a strategy to deal with the sluggish market and unfavorable conditions as it is today. He said ASUS will do business process efficiency and focus on marketing products that have landed in the Indonesian market.
Thus, some of the latest models that will come must be postponed first except for a number of models that need to be presented to replace the previous models that have been used up on the market.

Although some ASUS Indonesia service centers have been forced to close, at some point ASUS service partners remain open. Operational hours also vary, depending on the appeal of the local government.
