In the last days of 2015 we completed a very interesting and complex project for the Ministry for Regional Development, the Government of Romania. The project comprised a web platform that centralizes and manages the local development projects implemented by Romanian counties and other small administrative entities, such as cities or townships.
The managed projects are co-funded by the European Union and by the Ministry of Regional Development, and the workflow of the application is based on the applicable legislation.
The web application incorporates a CRM module, where the Ministry’s representatives upload all information with regard to the beneficiaries and contractors of the projects.
The application has the capability of managing the ongoing contracts between the Ministry and the Beneficiaries, with the option of saving all the information with respect to the payments, deductions, project fulfillment percentage, etc. All operations are audited by the application over the lifespan of the project (e.g. for 1, 2 or 3 years).
The application grew in complexity once we implemented a document management section, for uploading, downloading and sharing files between the users, with the option of generating predefined files, automatically filled out with information from the database.
Along with managing the documents, we also incuded a incident management section, where the Ministry’s staff would centralize all complaints, and solve them.
We are particularly pleased with this achievement since EU funded projects are in our foucus area, especially in the upcoming months, when new competitions will open across the European Union.
Speaking at a conference about the platform recently developed, in front of a crowd of more over 100 public administration representatives, Daniel, my colleague, righteously highlighted the importance of the IT&C sector in enhancing and supporting all other industries. Or as he likes to say, the role of software in “making things spin”.
We are confident, that MBM, as a leading Romanian software company, will continue undertaking large-scale projects at the same pace as we have done until now.
