Jordan takes directorate online

Jordan has got its e-government initiative underway with the transferral of Industrial Development Directorate’s (IDD) services online.

Jordan has got its e-government initiative underway with the transferral of Industrial Development Directorate’s (IDD) services online. The ‘e-Directorate’ project jointly developed by the IDD and Jordan-US Business Partnership (JUSBP), is aiming to improve industrial opportunities.

IDD, a directorate of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, has taken its day-to-day functions online in a bid to improve communication with the business community. The directorate is looking to develop industrial policies and legislations, as well as implementing industrial development programmes.

The Internet platform was developed by SigmaSoft, which worked initially with Ernst & Young to outline a framework ensuring a smooth framework and transition into the virtual world.

“We applied the developed framework on the qualified industrial zone (QIZ) section since it required immediate attention, and automated a complete cycle of a section within the directorate,” said Shayne Hakki, managing director, SigmaSoft.

SigmaSoft also invested in MS SQL 2000, N-tier architecture and COM+ middleware as part of the e-Directorate solution.

IDD is also responsible for conducting specialised training amongst Jordanian companies and establishing measures to safeguard Jordanian products.
