You do not just wake up and become a butterfly – Growth is a process, so is development.

President Lungu in Cabinet Meeting

In order to successfully transform Zambia into a highly technological country, His Excellency President Edgar Chagwa Lungu and the Patriotic Front Government established an initiative called SMART ZAMBIA under Government Gazette No.836 of 2016 as an e-Governnment division in the office of the President.

This initiative was aimed at transforming the country through Information and Communication Technologies and deployment of electronic Government services and processes for effective public delivery.

And to make sure that the SMART ZAMBIA initiative worked, the PF Government under the able leadership of President Lungu has invested massively in the development of Information Communications and Technology (ICT) in the country.

WHY ICTs:

– ICTs enable countries to be more productive, thereby spurring economic growth and helping industries to be more competitive.

BENEFITS

1) E-PAYSLIP:

– Smart Zambia has introduced electronic payslips for civil servants. Just in it’s first phase of e-payslip capturing exrercise, about 380,000 civil servants were captured in the e-payslip platform and are now able to receive their payslips through emails. Thus government has been able to save K85 million on payslip printing and K70 million on the cost of paper annually.

2) FRAUD:

– With the SMART ZAMBIA initiative, Government has managed to curb fraud and is able to not just detect but also to get rid of ghost civil servants using the e-payslip system.

3) GO GREEN:

The ICT development has greatly helped in complementing Government in achieving its Go Green environment initiatives. This is because the phasing out of paper documents like payslips entails reduction in cutting down of trees and low energy use.

IN CONCLUSION:

– WIth the above said information, I can proudly say BA LUNGU MWABOMBENI.

  1. Cool website!

    My name’s Eric, and I just found your site – zibanizambia.com – while surfing the net. You showed up at the top of the search results, so I checked you out. Looks like what you’re doing is pretty cool.

    But if you don’t mind me asking – after someone like me stumbles across zibanizambia.com, what usually happens?

    Is your site generating leads for your business?

    I’m guessing some, but I also bet you’d like more… studies show that 7 out 10 who land on a site wind up leaving without a trace.

    Not good.

    Here’s a thought – what if there was an easy way for every visitor to “raise their hand” to get a phone call from you INSTANTLY… the second they hit your site and said, “call me now.”

    You can –

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know IMMEDIATELY – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

    CLICK HERE http://www.talkwithcustomer.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    Time is money when it comes to connecting with leads – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later can be huge – like 100 times better!

    That’s why we built out our new SMS Text With Lead feature… because once you’ve captured the visitor’s phone number, you can automatically start a text message (SMS) conversation.

    Think about the possibilities – even if you don’t close a deal then and there, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

    Wouldn’t that be cool?
