16 April 2021 – The upcoming anti-red tape application of the Anti-Red Tape Authority (ARTA) will be linked to other existing government online platforms to make their services more accessible to the people.

“Ang gusto ho natin sana na mangyari ay maging interfaceable at interoperable siya sa lahat ho ng mga serbisyong gobyerno,” said ARTA Director General Jeremiah Belgica during a recent interview with him by UNTV’s Serbisyong Bayanihan about the Go.SmARTApp.

“In short modular pwede siyang i-dikit para ang tao for example kailangan nila ng business registration pwede sila pumunta sa isang platform that could lead them sa social amelioration naman ng DSWD or doon din sa contact tracing kung kinakailangan. Or bayad sa amilyar. All these things. Yun ho ang pinaka-idea,” he furthered.

Belgica added that the Go.SmARTApp will help local government units with meager resources to automate their processes and services rendered to the public.

“Kinakailangan lamang hong mag-apply or mag-enroll dito po sa Go.SmARTApp. Sila po ay makakagawa ng kanilang sariling pong mga automated platforms na pwede na hong gamitin ng taumbayan para mag-submit ng kanilang mga requirement, magbayad ng kanilang mga dapat bayaran sa pamamagitan ng application na ito,” he said.

Meanwhile, the ARTA czar assures safety of the application for public usage.

“Ang Go.SmARTApp ay ngayon sumasailalim sa mas matindi at mas malalim na na cyber security testing, data privacy screening. Lahat yan pinag-aaralan, which is a standard process for all platforms that are being proposed to be used in the government,” Belgica said.

The Go.SmARTApp, developed by the Multisys Technologies Corporation, is slated to be formally donated to ARTA and launched next week.
