Information about the project
BA-Paperless System
BA-Paperless system is developed to automate the different business processes within the Bibliotheca Alexandrina (BA) covering human resources, financial, correspondence tracks, and other administrative business processes, while integrating it with existing enterprise systems. The newly implemented Enterprise Content Management System (ECMS) has given the BA a much greater ability to manage information securely. In addition, it has been able to standardize best practices, while ensuring that it meets its compliance requirements for both internal policies and external regulations. The goal of the BA-Paperless is to achieve optimum efficiency by reducing costs, increasing the employees’ productivity and decreasing the cycle time of each process. The system managed to facilitate the workflow for the BA’s employees, creating a more decent work environment. The BA has succeeded to automate more than 90 business processes to become the first fully paperless public institution in Egypt. Evaluating the automation of more business processes is considered an ongoing process, to be able to accommodate the various needs of the institution. It is also worth mentioning that the project can be implemented and replicated in all of the governmental institutions in Egypt. It is worth mentioning that the system is an internal portal that could not be accessible from outside the BA for security reasons.
Local implementation: Egypt, Bibliotheca Alexabdrina Alexandria
Ongoing from 01/06/2015 to 30/06/2018
