Abstract
This study studies and analyzes strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats as a strategy in increasing competitiveness in BRI companies. In addition, it is also to develop the company using the SWOT matrix and QSPM to determine the best strategies that can be done by BRI companies in fierce competition by using their business. in the EFE Matrix where quite a lot of strengths and weaknesses that are owned by Bank BRI. Bank BRI have a total weight of 2.66, while the EFE Matrix consisting of opportunities and threats has a total weight of 3.44.Based on the data analysis that has been carried out, it can be concluded that BRI can improve the performance or facilities to be carried out by introducing BRI TERAS, especially for the North Sulawesi region and increasing marketing of BRI Junio products in Java and Bali. From the QSPM table, it can be seen that the results for the first plan, namely TERAS BRI, obtained a 4.01 result while the second plan, BRI Junio, obtained a yield of 6.44. We recommend two plans based on the SWOT analysis which can be seen from the opportunities of the Indonesian people who do not have an account number (O1), so BRI is the only company that has a satellite (S3).The results obtained indicate that the plan to develop BRI junio’s marketing is more promising for BRI Bank and tends to have a great opportunity for Bank BRI to realize the desire to save from a young age. because BRI Junio is a special savings program for children that is free of charge and have many features that are attractive to children. The research method used is methodology qualitative, which uses data in the field and interactions about BRI.

1. INTRODUCTION
The number of companies in the financial sector makes another company lead to have strong competitive power to maintain its business in the market. Not only that, but also the ability to survive and develop the business to be more advanced and able to meet the needs and expectations of customers.

For this reason, Bank BRI always strives to always improve its performance to always be the best bank in the eyes of the Indonesian people.

2. THEORETICAL STUDY
2.1 IFE Matrix and EFE Matrix
IFE and EFE are part of input stage of strategy- formulation and making small in the input matrix. David (2016; 65) a weight that ranges from 0.0 (not important) to 1.0 (all impoertant) is assigment to each indicator. Then, rating from 1-4 should be assigned to represent the value of response. Where 1 is major weakness (IFE) or poor (EFE), 2 is minor weakness (IFE) or average (EFE), 3 is minor strenght (IFE) or above average (EFE) and 4 is major strenghts (IFE) or superior response (EFE). The weight scores must be summed to get total weighted scores.

2.2 Analysis SWOT
Strenghts
Sondang (1995; 172) strengths are skill resources or other advantages of competitors’ relative and market needs served by companies or organizations. Strength is a special competency that provides a comparative advantage for companies in the market. Strength can be contained in financial resources, image, market leadership. buyer relationship with suppliers and other factors.

Weakness
Pearce (1995; 231) weakness is a limitation or lack in resources, skills and capabilities that seriously inhibits the effective performance of a company or organization. Facilities, financial resources, management capabilities, marketing skills, brand image can be a source of weakness.

Opportunity
Sondang (1995; 173) opportunity is an important situation that is beneficial in the environment of a company or organization. Important trends are one source of opportunity.

Threats
Michael (1997; 42) threats are important situations that are not profitable in a company or organization environment. Threats are a major distraction for the current position of the organization. The entry of new competitors, slow market growth, increasing bargaining power of important buyers or suppliers, technological changes and new or revised regulations can be a threat to the success of the company.

2.3 Strategy

2.4 SWOT Matrix
Fred, David (2016; 171) the SWOT matrix is an important matching tool that helps develop four types of strategies (SO strategy, WO strategy, ST strategy, WT strategy).

2.5 Quantitative Strategic Planing Matrix (QSPM)
Fred, David (2016; 184) the QSPM matrix is designed to determine the relative attractiveness of feasible alternative actions. Relative attractiveness of various strategies based on the extent to which the alternative strategies will enable the firm to capitalize upon strenghts and opoortunities, improve upon weakness and external threats. QSPM Matrix, where making process increasing that the final strategy decision for organization. QSPM matrix is a tool that allows strategy makers to evaluate internal key factors.

3. RESEARCH METHODOLOGY
Type of data that is used secondary data, which are annual report, news, articles and people experience who BRI’s customers. Descriptive method was used to present the problem with find proper strategies for organization.

4. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION
The result of IFE analysis was obtained through a number of indicators of strengths and weakness. Rating in this matrix refer to strong or weak level of each factor. The ratings range from 4 to 1, where 4 means a major strength, 3 means a minor strength, 2 means a minor weakness and 1 means a major weakness. Stengths can only receive ratings 3 & 4, while weakness 2 & 1

The table above is the result of the QSPM obtained from the sum of the weights and values that have been analyzed. From the table, it can be seen that the results for the first plan, namely TERAS BRI, obtained a result of 4.01 while the second plan, BRI Junio, obtained a yield of 6.44. We recommend the two plans based on the SWOT analysis which can be seen from the opportunities of the Indonesian people who do not have an account number (O1), then Bank BRI is the only company that has a satellite (S3).
The results obtained show that the plans to develop BRI junio’s marketing are more promising for BRI Bank and tend to have great opportunities for Bank BRI to realize the desire to save from a young age. because BRI Junio is a special savings program for children that is not charged at a fee.

5. CONCLUSION
In the EFE Matrix where quite a lot of strengths and weaknesses that are owned by Bank BRI have a total weight of 2.66.

From the analysis that has been done on the QSPM matrix that these two things get a value of 4.01 for TERAS BRI and 6.44 for BRI Junio. From these data we can find out that in the Java and Bali regions, BRI has great potential to be achieved.
