Dubai Courts has won .GOV Award’s ‘2015 Government Application of the Year’ for its ‘Smart Application,’ which is the world’s first-of-its-kind judicial-based smart services app.

Abdulrahim Ahmad Almudhareb, Director of Dubai Court’s IT Department received the award in a special ceremony held recently at Dubai’s Jumeirah Emirates Towers in the presence of a group of decision makers, senior government officials, and business leaders. This recognition complements the achievements of Smart App in consolidating smart processes, seamlessly managing all kinds of cases with the highest standards of promptness and efficiency, and enhancing the courts’ smart services portfolio of over 110 services.

Almudhareb explained that the success of the Smart App is the result of tireless efforts and hard work done by Dubai Courts to develop new applications to provide smart and reliable services that meet clients’ requirements. The service is designed to ensure happiness and well-being of the community in line with the goals of “Dubai Plan 2021”, aiming to build an innovative smart government that meets the needs of the future. He said that the application has achieved tangible and positive results in terms of supporting the plans of Dubai Courts to transform the legal and judicial services to 100 per cent smart services by the end of 2015. Almudhareb pointed out that this is an important milestone in the smart transformation and embodies the vision and directives of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
