Well, because of mobile phone Venny, Christina Sutedja and Fanny Pricilia successfully won the 2nd place on Open Jive 2009, a competition that is organized by SUN Microsystem, a Java developer from California, USA. The three students successfully developed financial controller software in mobile phone. The software is called Personal Finance Manager.

That software is able to record the income and expenses. “There is menu to input income from monthly wages or even other income. We just need to input the amount. Moreover, there is expense menu to record every time we spend the money. Then, the income menu will immediately be subtracted with the expense menu. There will be a beep once the total expense is approaching the total income,” said Venny.

If the expense is higher then the revenue, there will be a beep and alternative options appear. For example, may the user use credit card, the software will record that expense. “In principle, all expenses are well recorded,” she added.

At the end of each month, the software will exhibit a pie diagram consisted of graphic and total expense. “The system will exhibit the expense percentage for meal, shopping, transportation, and etc,” added Venny.

This innovative idea appeared when Venny always record her income and expense in book. “Recording in book is quite complicated,” described Venny.

Supervision from Mr. Njoto (Ubaya informatics engineering lecturer) was very valuable to enable Venny and her team won the 2nd place.

There were 18 teams from various universities participated on the competition. On 15 June, together with tim UIN Syarif Hidayatullah, Jakarta and Universitas Ahmad Dahlan, Jogjakarta, the Ubaya team were selected as finalist in Jakarta.
