InfoFort, an aramex company and the leading records and information management solutions provider in the Middle East and Africa, sponsored the Kingdom eGovernment Summit 2011 held in Riyadh this year. The two-day event drew together nearly 100 senior-level government officials and solution providers to discuss the latest industry trends that will affect the Kingdom’s eGovernment offerings. 

During the event, IT industry leaders and government officials explored a wide range of issues including ways to ensure easy access to technology for all public sector offices how to encourage strong communication between public offices and government departments in charge of implementing effective e‐government programs and the role of financial support for next-generation eGovernment solutions. 

Abed Shaheen, Managing Director, Inforfort delivered the final keynote speech at the event, focusing on how to improve government to citizen services while preserving critical records in the age of Wikileaks. 

“Services like those provided by InfoFort offer significantly improved access to important government services by citizens as they find it easier to obtain the essential information to access the services they require. As information becomes managed more effectively, allowing governments to provide better support through improved tracking and follow-up systems, citizens will be increasingly satisfied with the services afforded to them. But beyond citizen satisfaction, the improved efficiency and savings gained through implementing these systems will reduce overhead, wasted time and other unnecessary costs,” said Shaheen. 

“InfoFort is a committed partner in the development of core government data lifecycle management,” Shaheen said. “It is vitally important for regional governments to continue providing the most up-to-date eGovernment services to their citizens and other government officials. InfoFort specializes in providing tailored solutions that help improve government’s daily workflow while ensuring the highest standards of data protection.”
