ABU DHABI, 8th April, 2018 (WAM) — The Abu Dhabi Smart Solutions and Services Authority, ADSSSA, has completed the first phase of AD Connect, an integrated government project which complements TAMM’s initiative.
AD Connect is aimed at establishing a comprehensive work system to enable governmental entities in Abu Dhabi to digitally exchange government documents of individuals and companies through secure channels. The first stage of this first-of-its-kind project in the region culminated in the successful digital transformation of nine documents and their integration with the services of 15 government entities, thereby saving more than AED80 million for customers and AED11 million for government agencies.
The first phase was completed in cooperation with the Department of Education and Knowledge, ADEK, Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority, ADFCA, Abu Dhabi’s Housing Authority, Abu Dhabi Police, Abu Dhabi Judicial Department, Department of Culture and Tourism, Department of Energy, Department of Economic Development, Department of Urban Planning and Municipalities, Department of Finance, Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi, Department of Health – Abu Dhabi, the General Directorate of Residence and Foreigners Affairs Abu Dhabi, Department of Transport – Abu Dhabi and Abu Dhabi Customs.
This comes as part of the Abu Dhabi government’s efforts to provide distinguished services and experiences by improving and facilitating services and procedures. Accordingly, ADFCA and ADEC both launched initiatives contributing to the promotion of the government system to provide integrated and proactive government services.
Regarding this work, Dr. Rauda Saeed Al Saadi, Director-General of ADSSSA, said, “AD Connect has been launched to reinforce the efforts of TAMM, which was inaugurated earlier this year by H.H. Sheikh Hazza bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council. As a project that is the first of its kind in the region, AD Connect will essentially contribute to the efficiency, coordination and planning of government services. Our ambition is to enrich every customer’s experience by employing innovative technologies that are proactive, fast, and efficient, to save their time and energy.

It will also play a key role in the integration of services in Abu Dhabi and the promotion of joint service platforms for planning and implementation aspects.
