Paving the way for forward-looking local and central governments.
Our eGovernment solutions are paving the way for forward-looking local and central governments to re-imagine the role of the public sector in modern society: to deliver greater productivity, meet the expectations of digitally savvy businesses and citizens and facilitate business growth.
Escher’s collaborative digital government solution harmonizes disconnected government agencies and establishes more meaningful business and citizen engagement. Government information is made freely available and accessible at the touch of a button with direct two-way communication with an individual or a company. Our digital solution is designed to be open, social and inclusive – allowing participants to communicate and conduct digital transactions. It provides a secure repository for documents to be saved, accessed and updated, information to be exchanged via secure social media channels, and for digital transactions to take place.
We are supporting governments in establishing local and regional digital growth hubs that bring governments and businesses together. Our growth hub solutions provide a single access point for the public and private sectors to access all the relevant support they need to grow and develop. Growth hubs usually consist of different sections for events, news, resource centers and online networking communities. Here businesses can access reliable local and national governmental information inclusive of funding and grants, get advice, share ideas with other local companies, promote their business and obtain business support.
Escher’s Digital Mail Box solution is creating a pathway for central and local governments to securely communicate electronically with citizens.
Our secure digital mail boxes, which are faster, more cost effective and less wasteful of government resources, are replacing physical mailings.
Citizens benefit by being able to access the digital mail at times which are most convenient to them and in ways that they are accustomed to – whether it is online, mobile, at kiosks or agency outlets.
Our digital mail boxes, which guarantee data protection, are used by governments for distributing general information or individual communications to citizens. They are also used for secure mass-mailings such as tax, fees, licenses and grants that contain personal information.
Our solution can also be used for secure inter-departmental communications.
Escher’s Identity allows government services to be offered online that previously could only be offered offline. The key to eGovernment services is the ability to authenticate online users and transactions using international standards. This includes services such as applying for identity documents, registering to vote, providing verified signatures, registering for a license or requesting access to growth hubs. ID verification is achieved through users registering once to gain a proof of identity, needing to verify attributes such as home address, date of birth or credit ratings. Declarations are made and evidence is provided, checked and verified.
