Sharjah DeG showcases Zajel communications service
Workshop held to promote benefits of Zajel government digital communications service
Sharjah Department of eGovernment has held a workshop to showcase the capabilities of its new Zajel communications service.
Zajel has been established to create digital communications between government entities, which includes digitisation of communications, electronic signatures, and tracking and monitoring of documents and messages.
The workshop was held to introduce the new service to government representatives and to explain the benefits of Zajel, such as elimination of paperwork and improved integration between agencies.
At present, six government entities are connected to Zajel, with more set to follow. DeG will work with all government entities in Sharjah to train their personnel to use the system.
The workshop, which was the fifth such session, also highlighted the security features of Zajel, such as end-to-end encryption.
"Our aim is to ensure that we have the most advanced, the most secure, the most comprehensive and the most efficient systems in place in order for the people of Sharjah to benefit from this essential transformation into a digital age. The DeG is both a department of technical investment and a source of strategic counsel, which is why we are adopting Zajel, a perfect tool of our system requirements and a prime example of our progress," said Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmed bin Sultan Al Qasimi, Director General of Sharjah DeG.
"Zajel is an intuitive, bilingual application, equipped with electronic-signature technology, including a complete anti-forging protection feature, and the full implementation of this system will bring even more effectiveness and efficiency to Sharjah government's services," added Al Qasimi.
