At the conference, dedicated to the outcomes of the project, Minister for Education and Science Liliya Hrynevych described advantages of the system and managing partner of SMART business Natalya Onyshchuk expressed gratitude to the Minister for fruitful cooperation.
“Today, when we have migrated from paper to electronic documents exchange thanks to the electronic document management system, we can log in the database and see clearly not only when certain document was released, but also how it was passed and altered. We can easily find certain document by a keyword, understand who worked with that document and at which stages. It means the system has become much more effective and transparent. To say nothing about amount of time employees can save using electronic devices, compared to carrying papers. For example, as the Minister I formerly all the time faced piles of papers which I had to sign, but now I can do my job with the help of electronic signature on my tablet, even if I am not in my office”, – Ms. Hrynevych told.
