Alliance Between STATUM and ISA Strengthened and Projects Promoted in Paraguay
STATUM strengthened the alliance with partner ISA, a company with more than 30 years of experience developing software.
"We made a long way towards document management," commented Osvaldo Guichón, from ISA. This way, the company was introduced into the digital file world, process management in government entities and online procedures.
As time passed, STATUM and ISA noticed that they could join forces. "We realized that we could complement each other," he expressed.
Since 2020 both companies have been working together in projects aimed at modernizing document management processes in Uruguay and abroad.
Their first experience was in the Local Government of Canelones. Thanks to their work and ApiaTrámites technology, now the construction permission can be requested online, which helps reducing paper support.
The Government of Canelones released the mentioned online procedure in 2021 and commented that this innovation "promotes a key improvement in the management processes and construction permissions process. It allows providing a faster and more efficient service by optimizing times and human resources."
Projects continued in Paraguay. Both companies bided for the implementation of online procedures in the Ministry of Information Technologies and Communication. For this project, they established an alliance among ISA, STATUM, CPA Ferrere and local partner Grupo Horus.
As a result of the bidding funded by the Inter-American Development Bank, ApiaTrámites is being implemented in the Paraguayan Institute of Craftwork, in which all the artisans of the country are registered.
ISA and STATUM are currently working in the implementation of an online procedure in the Local Government of Maldonado. Such procedure is the Department Unique Certificate, which so far was being completed in person. This document certifies the property owned by the holder in Maldonado department and that tax payments are in due.
Guichón expressed that the experience of working with STATUM brought "so much learning." "We grew together and now we are a good team," he added. Also, he highlighted the flexibility of the Apia licensing scheme: "From the business point of view, STATUM is a flexible company." He also commented that ISA has solid experience in document management processes in government agencies and that STATUM counts on ApiaTrámites, which has consolidated as a tool for citizens. "By working together, we can offer better services," he stated.
