The newly developed e-office was recently launched by Minister for Environment and Forest Mr. Rajendra Arlekar in the presence of GSPCB chairman Mr. Jose Manuel Noronha and other board officials.
GSPCB’s vision to accomplish paperless governance came live through Highbar’s innovative e-portal “Sustainable Workflow Platform” through which all the approvals will be facilitated online. Helping the board to be more efficient, this major Digital initiative will ensure paperless and transparent governance by leveraging information technology to undo unnecessary delays and the whole office proceedings would be available more seamlessly.
Commenting on achieving this major milestone for operation excellence Mr. Jose Manuel Noronha, Chairman, GSPCB said “It’s a proud moment for us as we are the only government department to go paperless after the Legislative assembly of Goa. This initiative is a major leap towards our commitment of making the board more accountable & approachable for the residents of Goa. By discarding the paper-based system we are also doing our part in saving trees from being cut as unnecessary paper use leads to wastage. We are thankful to team Highbar Technologies for their extensive support & handholding to make this dream project come live.”
Highlighting their accomplishment at GSPCB Mr. Satish Pendse, President Highbar Technologies said “SAP implementation at GSPCB is one of our successful ventures into the government vertical with great enthusiasm. Paving way for e-governance at the board comes as a true testimony to our practice of treating IT deployment as a business transformation initiative. The Goa State Pollution Control Board’s support has been very encouraging to achieve this remarkable feat. We are sure the deployment of SAP and this initiative will motivate other State Pollution Control Boards and government offices adopt a digital transformation journey.”
