Smartphone users worldwide are expected to reach a whopping 6.6 billion in 2022. From 2016 to 2022, global smartphone users increased at a 10.4 percent annual rate, with 2017 seeing the most growth. Governments around the world are trying to harness the power of smartphones by using eGovernment mobile applications to facilitate field-level activities.
How Does E-Government Work?
eGovernment, or electronic government, provides public services to residents in a nation or region via technical communication equipment, such as computers, smartphones, and the internet. Through e-government, individuals interact more directly with their government and access government services in a more convenient manner.
eGovernment offers all kinds of services; they can be citizen-focused services, automation, or digitization for internal government processes. Depending on the service, different software or systems may be needed. For some services, you can have both mobile applications, web applications, or even desktop-based applications. Some may only require a mobile app and a web portal. These needs vary from government to government and across different solutions.
For example, if you want to use biometric authentication in the field, you need Mobile Biometrics Software Solutions. This is especially useful for law enforcement agencies that often require field-level authentication.
eGovernment Mobile Applications for the Field
As mentioned before, different types of government services require different approaches. In this section, we will focus on some applications that require field deployment.
The Law Enforcement Management System
Maybe one of the most popular uses of field-level eGovernment mobile applications is the Law Enforcement Management System by M2SYS eGov Platform. This solution has both a web application and a mobile app that works with both Android and iOS. The solution can be deployed on the cloud and also on-premise according to the specifications of the government. Through mobile apps and mobile biometrics software solutions, users can authenticate offenders from the field. Depending on the modality, you may or may not need additional biometric devices, but the mobile biometrics software by M2SYS supports all major biometrics scanners.
Other than the law enforcement management system, governments can deploy different solutions to streamline the existing processes and strengthen security. These solutions are frequently powered by biometrics, the cornerstone of most eGovernment projects. Here are some examples where field-level deployment can be beneficial for the government.
Protect Restricted Areas
With applications like visitor management, you can easily detect anyone going in or out of a certain area. This could be beneficial for a military base or any sophisticated area where security is the top priority. The mobile application can be easily created with the M2SYS eGov platform and altered according to the needs of the government or agency.
Border management can be another case for field-level deployment, as there can be multiple spots to enter or exit a country, such as airports, land ports, or even seaports. Deploying such applications can easily track those going in or out of the country.
M2SYS eGov Platform
M2SYS is a global e-Government software solution provider with over two decades of experience. The eGov platform is a culmination of these experiences. It is a no-code AI platform that can be used to create any web or mobile application without writing a single line of code. M2SYS eGov can be deployed in the field, taking biometric authentication to the next level. Several pre-developed applications can be deployed instantly and can be tailored to fit the needs of any government, without any coding knowledge.
Field-level deployment can be very tricky without the right platform at your disposal. The M2SYS eGov platform can work as a flexible and dependable OS for field-level eGovernment applications. Get in touch with us today to get a free demo on field-level deployment.
