E-governe is Brazil’s only widely deployed e-governance system with a proven track record of radically improving efficiency of government administration and value to the taxpayer. The ways in which e-governe saves government bodies resources are almost innumerable. Through the complete standardization of all processes and the total accessibility to government services via the internet, e-governe virtually replaces the administrative models of old, in some cases reducing the required manpower by 90 percent or more.
E-governe is more than just a software package. It is a new model of governance. The system is capable of the near total elimination of inefficiencies and errors in the majority of areas on which it’s focused. It also makes it easier than ever for constituents to access government services. And it allows for 100 percent transparency of all government services, including acceptance and rejection of government subsidies and other areas where, in the past, there may have been accusations of bias or favoritism. In short, e-governe makes government efficient, transparent and fair.
It also allows for the extremely rapid administration of government services that used to be notoriously slow. In many cases, things like issuing building permits or driving licenses can be carried out in a few minutes. This is all done through the internet, so there is the near complete elimination of unnecessary paperwork.
One of the most value-creating units that e-governe offers is its Tributos line of products. These are designed specifically for the municipal tax management field. E-governe Tributos is a complete solution for municipal tax collection, record keeping, property assessment and employee management. With the ability to nearly eliminate forms, e-governe can electronically handle vast amounts of work that would have otherwise fallen on the shoulders of municipal employees, creating mountains of unnecessary paperwork and expending hundreds of man-hours per employee, per year.
But there are even greater benefits than the creation of paperless governance. E-governe’s Tributos system is capable of virtually eliminating all errors and creating a totally transparent system of tax assessment. Especially throughout Latin America, preferential tax treatment has been one of the main vehicles by which corrupt officials use to dispense favors to those with whom they have shady dealings. E-governe can be set up in a secure fashion to completely eliminate all opportunities for corrupt dealings within a municipal tax system.
This extends even beyond where one might think its limits would lie. For example, it would always be possible for a tax assessor to intentionally undervalue a property if they were paid off by the property’s owner. However, e-governe can combat such transgressions, through the use of sophisticated algorithms that check property types and all of the relevant parameters against other similar properties within its database. If it finds something suspicious, e-governe can notify the relevant manager to look into the situation.
In this way, when e-governe talks about security, it isn’t merely referring to its ability to repel cyber attacks. E-governe has a robust capability to detect and correct errors, both accidental and intentional, created by the employees who administer the tax apparatus themselves. https://www.facebook.com/pages/E-Governe/325368564267182
