BANGKOK (NNT) – Electronic Transactions Development Agency (ETDA) is accelerating the adoption of electronic transactions in Thailand by offering free trial e-Office solutions to government agencies, the private sector and members of the public so that they can have a better experience when working from home during COVID-19 pandemic.
ETDA director Chaichana Mitrpant, said today that uplifting the way of life of Thais through digital technology is the mission of the agency. ETDA has been working on the elimination of work-from-home limitations in relation to security, standards, laws and regulations as well as seeking e-Office solutions that comply with those legal requirements.
16 agencies have approved four e-Office solutions provided by Thai technology companies based on their conformity with self-assessment guided by ETDA recommendations.
The solutions are for example, e-Meeting, e-Voting, e-Signature, e-Document, e-Saraban. ETDA aims to fully implement the last two solutions among government agencies by the end of 2021. Besides, it will launch a consulting service to help agencies select the most suitable solutions for their organization.
ETDA has also joined forces with Thai technology companies including True Digital Group, PEAK, Brainergy Company Limited and Gofive to support work-from-home solutions – such as e-HR and video conferencing – at package promotion prices or in a free trial.
By the end of this year, ETDA will host a Live Streaming Talk: a Virtual Series with hands-on workshops and showcases, and an e-Office Hackathon in order to seek the best e-Office providers and promote the adoption of new digital technology.
