SCCI merges operations and databases with Expo Centre
The move is expected to deliver improved operational efficiencies, as well as streamline services for the business community.
The Sharjah Chamber of Commerce & Industry (SCCI) has announced the completion of its merger with the Expo Centre Sharjah. As part of the merger, the chamber's IT team has unified and standardised all its data and processed information with the Expo centre.
As a result, the two bodies will enjoy substantially improved business performance mechanisms, faster acquisition and processing of data, as well as forming the foundation towards enhancing services to the business community.
Commenting on the merger, HE Abdullah Sultan Al Owais shared: "This project contributes in fully integrating databases, preserving and archiving them electronically. This will strengthen the business environment in the Emirate of Sharjah by facilitating and expediting access to information by all business sectors in the emirate, in line with the government smart vision in serving clients and meeting their requirements and fulfilling their expectations."
Al Owais added: "By moving forward toward investing in IT infrastructure, SCCI aims at smoothing the flow of work and associated services according to the highest international standards, and coping with the fast-pace digital transformation and latest technologies, so all databases are connected and virtually merged through the highly advanced servers available in the chamber and Expo Centre."
Abdul Aziz Al Houli, director of Information Technology at SCCI, also commented: "The merge will significantly contribute in reducing paper consumption in all types of business transactions and handlings, transforming all the chambers inquiries to be conducted and processed digitally."
