The Government of Sharjah is embarking on a massive document management project, after signing a deal with PRO Technology to transfer all physical departmental data into a digital format.

The project brings Sharjah into line with other Emirates, which have started similar projects. The document management project is the initial phase of Sharjah's broader e-government strategy.

“Soon we will be available to enter the e-government initiative. The process will enhance public services of department for nationals as well as other residents,” says Obaid Al Thunaiji, member of the Executive Council and director general of Town Planning & Surveys.

The project to convert the Sharjah government’s documentation is scheduled to take just eight months. PRO Technology will use Kodak workgroup scanners with ‘capture software’ for the duration of the project. Valuevad, the regional distributors for Kodak will supply the scanners to PRO Technology.

“Kodak scanners are known for their reliable feeder mechanism, high capacity loading and simple operation,” says Lars Jeppesen, managing director, Valuevad.

“This project brings another milestone for us. It is significant to us as we enter a new phase, consolidating our digital archive and storage products and solutions,” adds Jamal Marqaa, managing director PRO Technology.
