Designers of the digital address system, Vokacom, a Ghanaian information technology company is optimistic that the successful integration of the system into all state agencies would reduce corruption drastically.
The Chief Executive Officer of Vokacom, Nana Osei Afrifa said using the system to access most public services, would help reduce human contact which are usually the basis of corruption.
Afrifa said the system, when combined with other technological initiatives, would help reduce corruption and promote better management of the economy.
He added that in advanced areas where similar systems were used, people applied for services and bid for contracts online and received documents depending on their provided digital address.
This he said reduced the many human contact which would have likely demanded financial favours before being carried out or implemented.
Nana Afrifa said the process to successfully integrate the system was ongoing and called on stakeholders to support it.
He said the initiative formed part of the government’s agenda of promoting effective governance and formalisation of the economy.
He therefore called on those who were yet to generate their digital addresses to do so as soon as possible to increase their visibility and enhance their operations, among other benefits.
“So far, implementation has gone remarkably well; we have recorded over 500,000 downloads and over seven million usages responding to varying needs,” he said.
