The conception of ESB started in 2006.
It began when Gunawan founded a finance consultant named SGR Consulting Group.

ESB started its journey as an ERP custom provider company.
ESB began when Gunawan (finance, accounting, and tax expert also Founder of SGR Consulting) crossed path with a group of skillful programmers: Eka, Setiadi, and Dwi (Founder & Co-Founders of Karya Digital).
ESB developed a variety of the most challenging ERP systems starting from zero.
Remboelan, a well-known Indonesian F&B joined ESB.
ESB was asked to solve a problem faced by one of the foremost restaurant brands in Indonesia. Steadily, ESB's business was growing and occupied the first ESB's office in Serpong, Tangerang.
At that moment, the Founder & Co-Founders of ESB found the concept of "community-based software" for restaurants. They believe that ESB could craft the perfect software solution by listening to real problems faced by restaurants and delivering the most suited technology.
