PARAMARIBO – The government of Trinidad and Tobago has serious plans to computerize their ministries. Nilesh Bishesar, commercial manager at Qualogy, expects to start on the island this month, to support the Trinidadian government with their systems automation. Multiple agreements will be signed with the ministries. “The objective of the government is to strengthen its competitiveness in the region. To this end, an ambitious plan has been developed to implement software systems that boost the work power”, Bishesar explains. Qualogy has been asked to develop these software systems, which will increase efficiency of the various ministerial administrations.
Trinidad considers, for example, to automate car registration numbers, port registration and public sector administration, while there are also advanced plans to encourage other investors, not just from the oil and gas industry, for which entirely new systems will be needed. “Trinidad is clearly in a hurry to computerize its processes”, Bishesar responds. The team has also consulted with iGovTT, the Trinidadian authority which centrally coordinates all government automation. “The combination of a Dutch and Suriname office makes us unique. We work in virtual teams at our projects for customers, where knowledge is transferred continuously and the follow-the-sun principle is used to get the utmost out of a working day”, the commercial manager concludes.
In conjunction with the visit to Trinidad, the Qualogy team also visited Curaçao, where presentations were held as well. Bishesar reveals that there already are extensive agreements with a private company. “To that end we will enter into a cooperation with a local ICT company to offer our products and services.”
Qualogy employs about 220 people and operates from two locations: The Netherlands and Suriname. The company implements systems which are completely geared towards the work processes. Qualogy carries out entire projects for several Dutch ministries.
