PEOPLE will now be able to print their national identity cards faster with the new queuing management system at the PNG Civil and Identity Registry office.
The queue management is a set of applications similar to what the Bank South Pacific use at the banks to make customer flow more efficient.
National Planning and Monitoring Minister Richard Maru was the first to use the system at the Civil and Identity Registry office in Port Moresby.
“There are many things to prioritise under my ministry but I have put my hand up to roll out the NID programme and I will continue to meet the challenges and complete the process by 2021,” Maru said.
“The queuing management system will now help NID officers as well the general public to be served quicker. It will contribute to time management and ability to serve more people.”
Maru said Port Moresby would be the first location to use the system. It will be rolled out to other provinces this year. He said they currently had two printing machines that could print up to 700 cards per day which was a big improvement.
Register-general Noel Mobiha said his office had experienced queuing problems like other organisations such as banks but the new system would alleviate that.
