In a major push towards Abu Dhabis vision of digital transformation and to boost business morale, an array of initiatives were launched on Saturday.
The Department of Government Support, represented by the Abu Dhabi Digital Authority (ADDA), introduced new digital solutions to support community, entrepreneurs and streamline government work as the Stay Home campaign continues in the country.
Abu Dhabi Connect, a first-of-its-kind initiative in the region, is a project under the umbrella of TAMM, which is one-shop portal for all Abu Dhabi Government services.
The project aims to enable government entities to digitally exchange documents of individuals and companies by transforming these paper documents into digital data. Accordingly more than 50 hard-copy documents will be converted into digital data for use across 24 government entities. This simplifies procedures of more than 500 government services that provide more than five million transactions annually.
According to ADDA, the project will save more than Dh714 million and 7 million hours for customers, 737,000 working hours for government entities, and around 31 million archived documents annually.
Popular digitalised documents include medical insurance files, property verification certificate, tawtheeq tenancy contract, driving licence, water and electricity bill, passport, vehicle ownership, commercial licence etc.
Ali Rashid Al Ketbi, Member of Abu Dhabi Executive Council and Chairman of the Department of Government Support in Abu Dhabi, said: Abu Dhabi Connect project represents an important step for the Abu Dhabi Digital Authority in leading the digital future of the Abu Dhabi Government and reflects the integrated and concerted government efforts to create smart, efficient, fast and proactive digital solutions.
