Software provider launches mobile government solutions at GITEX
LINK Development, a provider of integrated software solutions and subsidiary of OTVentures, has launched mobile government solutions at GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK 2013.
The LINK Development products and solutions line-up are already enabling e-governments to move to the next wave of mobility services.
The company says with a new wave of LINK Development m-solutions to that have been unveiled during GITEX, it is poised to bring more public and private entities online with the new vision of m-government.
“Governments in the GCC and in other parts of the region have realised early on the vital importance of providing their services to citizens and businesses electronically. This early implementation of e-services by the GCC, first launched in Dubai in 2000 with the e-government initiative by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, UAE Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, has now been followed by another swift adoption of mobile government services in response to His Highness’s call for offering local and international customers of the UAE government entities quick and easy access to a comprehensive range of government services,” says Amin Azab, Managing Director of LINK Development.
“The core of e-gov is the ability of government entities to benefit from ICT in developing their citizens’ services and to offer these services through a variety of innovative channels that can cater to the individual needs and expectations of the various categories of citizens,” says Tarek El Araby, Link Development GCC Commercial Director. “While a lot has already been achieved to move into a comprehensive e-government platform by fully automating the Government to Business (G2B) and Government to Citizen (G2C) services, there is still a wide gap to be filled in order to present a seamless citizen interface with both federal and local government departments.”
El Araby says: “There is a clear trend across our government clients to think about the needs of citizens and businesses and develop their new e-services strategies from there.”
