Bahrain Post launches new mobile service
Manama, April 21, 2013
Bahrain Post in cooperation with the e-Government Authority has launched a new mobile service for parcel tracking, as part of the Ministry of Transportation’s strategic plan aimed at increasing postal services to better serve the public.
The new service, which is set to become the preferred choice for carrying out postal transactions, will serve in reaching a wider audience and be at par with the latest technologies for doing business, a statement from Bahrain Post said.
Kamal bin Ahmed Mohammed, Minister of Transportation (MoT), said: “This service will enable users to track their shipments online from point of origin to final destination via the mobile application.”
“Moreover, users will be able to access information on the various postal services and offerings including post office locations and working hours as well as calculate postage fees in multiple currencies.”
Users can also download the application directly from the e-Government portal’s mobile and smart phone application section which includes other smart phone applications and services, he said.
With the introduction of this latest application, Bahrain Post now offers two services that are readily accessible on the portal. The first service offered was the renewal and payment of mailboxes which is now complemented with this additional service which enables the tracking of postal packages.
“The mutual cooperation between Bahrain Post and the e-Government Authority has resulted in significant advancement in facilitating e-services, and the two services currently offered are only two of many to follow in the future that aim in further facilitating e-services’ efficiency and effectiveness,” Mohammed said.
The launch of such services represents moves towards increased integration within government- provided services and delivering seamless interactivity to users.
With ongoing cooperation between ministries to introduce more services via the e-government portal, the government will be able to achieve its desired objective of integration and streamlining of services, the statement said.
MoT will continue to support this objective by introducing new e-services via Bahrain.bh on the areas of land transportation and marine services, which will be announced in the future. – TradeArabia News Service
