FIVE PNG software engineers have developed a computer programme that helps organisations, including district electorates, to manage their affairs.
The five computer science specialists who make up Minsoft Limited put their brains together to create the software which they named Electorate Management System (EMS).
The programme was customised for the 89 electorates in PNG.
Minsoft managing director Leonard Wanusim said the team decided to create EMS because of rampant corruption in the nation and project funds.
“The electoral levels are misused, people don’t see the money, they only hear the amount mentioned and it’s a negative approach for PNG especially when the country is trying to move forward.
“EMS will help increase productivity and efficiency in project developments as everything will be monitored and verified systematically,” he said.
The EMS features project, fund and account, district plan and profile, asset, contact and document management system and as long as these modules are registered in the programme, the system monitors them completely.
One important feature of the EMS is its ability for project donors, like the Office of Rural Development to verify project implementation anywhere in the country against MPs acquittal reports.
“The MPs now don’t have the capacity to efficiently verify projects they put money into,” Mr Wanusim said.
