CrimsonLogic, a Singapore-based provider of eGovernment solutions and services, is now implementing a new system for the Qatar Customs authority which will provide a single electronic interface linking the trading community with up to 13 relevant ministries and government agencies. The contract to design and implement a nationwide eGovernment system – known as the Qatar Customs Clearance Single Window (QCCSW) project – to automate and streamline the customs administration system was awarded in 2008 and its implementation is now being phased-in. “We are excited to be part of this revolutionary system by the Qatari government. Qatar is a visionary country and is aggressively embracing automation to achieve greater transparency and increased business efficiency. The QCCSW project is a significant milestone in Qatar’s extensive automation drive as it puts in place a unified clearing system that simplifies customs procedures and ensures accuracy, as well as brings significant cost savings to government agencies and the trading community,” said Leong Peng Kiong, CEO, CrimsonLogic. CrimsonLogic has been active in the Middle East for the last five years, having worked on several key projects, including a trade facilitation project known as SaudiEDI in Saudi Arabia in 2005; an integrated arbitration system in Dubai in 2007; and an eJustice programme in the United Arab Emirates in 2008.
