TIM and NCC Jointly Launch e-Services Portal
Posted at May 31, 2010
Local IT industry-leader Total Information Management Corp. (TIM) recently spearheaded the official launch of the National Computer Center's Philippine Government e-Services Portal.
Tagged as "eSerbisyo.gov.ph" or "eSerbisyo" in the international Internet community, the e-Services Portal was built by TIM through a Php 45M contract awarded by NCC last year. This portal is designed to serve as a one-stop, all-in-one Internet gateway for accessing comprehensive information and online frontline services of multiple government agencies.
"When we first embarked on this project, we at TIM had the honor of being NCC's chosen solution integration partner to build the country's first citizen-centric Government e-Services Portal ", says Salvador Aque, Senior Vice President of TIM. "Now that we have built the portal, we take pride in being part of its successful launching to the Filipino Internet community here and the rest of the world."
"NCC is now fully-enabled as the frontline for e-government services," says Angelo Timoteo Diaz de Rivera, Director General of NCC. "As we have originally envisioned, this portal features various interactive pages for accessing public information, downloadable forms from government agencies, job openings, stock market updates, foreign currency exchange rates, even weather forecasts. It also includes informative pages on Philippine history, geography, culture, and tourism."
"eSerbisyo" also has an interface to the e-Payment Gateway (known as "eBayad") that allows electronic payments to government agencies through credit cards, debit instructions, and mobile wallets.
TIM is a 100% Filipino-owned IT company established in 1985 and is a leading technology services company providing hardware, software, maintenance services, system integration, business recovery and outsourcing services for some of the country's largest enterprises.
NCC, formally established in 1971, is a government agency under the Commission on Information and Communications Technology. Its main task is to aggressively promote the use of ICT in large-scale, strategic, mission-critical, public service delivery-oriented, and revenue-generating information systems in government. Today, NCC lends its full support to the government's ICT thrust by forging strategic alliances with the private sector, coordinating ICT activities, developing human capital, promoting ICT utilization in all sectors of the society, and advocating Philippine ICT services worldwide.
