There was the need to facilitate and improve the procedures regarding the sports licensing certification scheme, concerning, certification licenses requests, processing certification licenses requests, payment procedures, access to data (IDP,I.P. and Fiscalization bodies)
The requesites defined included:
- a mechanism that operated in web environment;
- a mechanism that facilitated the Certificate license tax payment
-a fast mechanism, with a user-friendly interface (backoffice and frontoffice)
- a mechanism that facilitated the communication between IDP,I.P. and the other fiscalization bodies
Issues concerning the software solution:
In order to identify a service provider to build the solution that would meet our needs concerning functionality, safety and reliability, IDP.I.P. searched for a provider that had the knowledge, the experience and technology in developing computing platforms similar to the one we had in mind in a short period of time. After evaluating the market the best proposal was presented by QUIDGEST, a Company that’s has in in its curriculum a series of awards for good practices in the production of software solutions.
Issues concerning payment procedures:
After evaluating existing resources, it became clear that the electronic mechanism that best suited the requirements previously established was the "ATM" network system ATM-network universal banking services in Portugal, developed by SIBS.
That system was found extremely appropriate to the objectives to be achieved, with respect to the creation of a service easy and intuitive to be use by citizens, simplifying the whole process and ensuring a sound relationship between citizens and public administration more comfortable, without however, neglecting the legality and security required by the permit in question and the reduction of manpower involved in the process and material resources.
Apart from a mechanism that would meet those requirements, was also critical to ensure the development of a backoffice system that allows the exchange of information between the IDP,I.P. and SIBS.
