More than half a million SMS messages delivered in 3 months by mDubai
More than half a million short message service (SMS) text messages were delivered by government departments to the public, using Dubai eGovernment's advanced channel mDubai in just three months since its launch.
The biggest user of mDubai was Dubai Police which used the system to deliver over 125,000 SMS messages to members of the public. The Department of Health and Medical Services (DOHMS) came second with 45,000 messages, followed by the Dubai Civil Defence (43,000).
Dubai eGovernment launched mDubai in September to offer a brand-new platform to government departments to deliver information, alerts and other communication to citizens through mobile phones and other mobile devices such as personal digital assistants (PDAs).
Dubai eGovernment is a pioneering initiative in the region to provide online services across the spectrum of corporate and community life in the emirate. The eGovernment portal is a single contact point masking the complexity of the bureaucratic procedures, and guiding access to all services in the easiest possible way. — (menareport.com)
