The Smart Dubai Office has launched an electronic platform dubbed "Dubai Now" during an interactive workshop titled "Smarter Together" held at Atlantis the Palm today.

According to the Smart Dubai Office, the new platform is meant to act as a one-stop shop for all government services in the emirate of Dubai.

The state-of-the-art platform is the latest in Smart Dubai's range of smart services and complements the Dubai Now app - the integrated platform for the city's services that cater to individuals, which was launched by Smart Dubai in 2015.

Smart Dubai stated that all services available on the application will be integrated into the Dubai Now website and the aim is to facilitate round-the-clock and easy access to best-in-class services through new channels, which will reflect on the happiness and satisfaction of the residents and visitors of Dubai.

The Dubai Now platform targets all members of the public, the business sector and visitors. It compiles government services and integrates them in an effort to provide easy and smooth access. The platform includes 11 categories of services: security and justice, public transport, payments and bills, visas and residence, driving, health, business and employment, education, housing, Islam, and miscellaneous.

The smart services provided through the platform include locating the nearest car registration centre; payment of traffic violations, water and electricity bills, and Etisalat and Du fees, topping up Salik and Nol cards, accessing Dubai Customs accounts and services such as "Ajari", "Makani", and "Criminal Case Look-up". The platform also allows users to donate to Dubai Cares, Al Jalila Foundation, and others.
