Mandaue City, a 1st class highly-urbanized city in Cebu Province, has taken steps to digitalize its operations by going paperless. This is being done through a strategic partnership with Globe Business, the enterprise arm of Globe Telecom, which is supplying the necessary tools to make it happen.
Mandaue City goes paperless with Globe Business
The city’s legislative arm, the Sangguniang Panlungsod ng Mandaue, has signed up for Globe Business’ Document Management System, which allows the local government unit to secure and back up years’ worth of files dating back to as early as 1950, against any fortuitous event. The system also helps facilitate easy access and retrieval of records, and reduce the use of paper for environmental and digital transaction purposes.
“The Sangguniang Panlungsod ng Mandaue is now taking an aggressive step to digitalize its operations and administration of its legislative measures. One of the priorities of this administration is to make the delivery of public service more efficient and impactful, thus, we found the need to go paperless,” said Mandaue City Vice Mayor Glenn O. Bercede.
He added: “Ever since implementing the Document Management System, we have had a more efficient way of archiving previous files, tracking of present and incoming documentation which significantly reduced our carbon footprint. We commend Globe Telecom, specifically Globe Business, for partnering with us in making this project a reality. We expect the same solid support and service delivery for the implementation of future projects that will benefit the people of Mandaue”.
Peter Maquera, Senior Vice President for Globe Business said, “Globe Business is privileged to have been chosen by the City of Mandaue. We are very excited for the partnership as this pushes us to strive for excellence and commit to our purpose to help build our nation”.
This partnership is also in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal No. 9, which emphasizes the need for investment in infrastructure and innovation, being identified as crucial drivers of economic growth and development.
Globe Business is leading the way in encouraging LGUs to adopt the integration of ICT and governance as a means of improving the delivery of government services and exchanges of information. The said initiative supports Globe Telecom’s drive to transform the Philippines into a digital nation by instilling the importance of eGovernance to government offices.
