Sharjah launches new smart application for public services

SHARJAH, November 27, 2021

Sharjah Digital Office (SDO) said it has launched ‘Digital Sharjah’, a smart application that seamlessly integrates a host of essential public services provided by different government entities and private sector companies on a single, simplified digital user interface.
The Beta version of the smart application was launched during a virtually held press conference, in the presence of Sheikh Saud bin Sultan Al Qasimi, Director of the SDO, and 400 attendees including top government officials. 
At the core of this project lies Sharjah’s ambition of continually improving the quality of life of citizens, residents and current and aspiring business owners in Sharjah and the UAE, while also boosting ease of access for visitors and tourists coming into the emirate from all over the world, said the statement from SDO.
With the advent of Digital Sharjah platform (website and app), customers will enjoy uninterrupted, 24/7 access to a host of public services including the payment of utility and phone bills, the payment of parking fees, renewal of trade licences, and much more. 
This means customers would no longer be restricted by the working hours of public sector entities in Sharjah to get their work done.
According to SDO, the smart service currently offers a portfolio of 41 services across 7 broad categories including business, transportation, utilities, social services, general, real estate, and security. 
Services provided by a host of public entities have been brought under Digital Sharjah’s umbrella to enable residents to pay all their utility bills on one platform; avail a range of transport-related services including booking taxis, paying parking fees and fines.
Residents with business interests can also register new investors, reserve a trade name, file consumer protection or service agent complaints, estimate license fees, and more. 
Sheikh Saud said: "Digital Sharjah is a forward-looking project that leverages intelligently networked information and communication technologies (ICT) to offer our customers quick, seamless services that will save their time and efforts, and subsequently, improve their quality of life. This is Sharjah’s newest endeavour to reinforce the government–community relationship."
"As we launch a milestone project, our achievement is symbolic of a new era of sustainable, human-centric growth powered not just by the brilliance of technology, but by the close collaboration and outstanding efforts of a host of government entities who partnered with us to put their services on the Digital Sharjah platform, setting a new example of institutional integration", he added thanking all partnering entities," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
