DTI-CEBU goes INFOTEXT!

Republic Act 8792, otherwise known as the Electronic Commerce Act directed   all government agencies to transact government business and/or perform governmental functions using and in the form of electronic data messages or electronic documents. Specifically, Section 29 of the E-Commerce Act, authorizes the Department of Trade and Industry to direct and supervise the promotion and development of electronic commerce in government agencies.

In response to this heavy task, DTI Cebu pioneered on this SMS messaging project.

Majority of businessmen who secures licenses, permits and registration from DTI Cebu does not have the luxury of time to do personal follow-ups at the DTI Office, with their valuable time and efforts better applied in some other productive business endeavors. Likewise, parties to cases filed at DTI, either consumer complaints or EO 913 cases, would be spending more money, time and efforts if they do personal follow-ups.

Nor can they make follow-ups through the telephone. Due to budgetary constraints, DTI Cebu at present, has only two telephone lines / numbers which caters to incoming and outgoing calls. Using the telephone for follow-ups can be frustrating sometimes given the sizeable number of DTI Cebu clients.

Included in this high impact project are transaction status and information on:

Example: DTICEB 06-01020 and send to 2333

  1. COFFEE (which will give the price of Nescafe and Great Taste for 10mL & 15mL.)
  2. MILK (which will give the price of Evaporated Filled Milk, Condensed Milk & Powdered Milk for specific sizes and brands)
  3. SOAP (which will give the price of Detergent Bar and Laundry Soap for    Perla and Wheel)

Clients need a more convenient and faster way of securing information on the status of their applications or filed cases.

Cellphones are now a common necessary appendage to businessmen and consumers. Thus, the option of using text messaging presented itself as a better alternative.
