The Department of Dubai Smart Government (DSG) has announced that the ‘smart employee’ app for smart phones and tablets, which has been designed especially for Dubai government employees, is now available on Apple Store through the link http://goo.gl/S4QXsq and on Google Play Store through the link http://goo.gl/OZacWh.

This followed DSG’s announcement that it has implemented the second phase of the app during the Gitex Technology Week held last month.

With this step, the app is now available for use to all Dubai government employees using the government resources planning (GRP) systems.

The app, available in both Arabic and English, provides the employees with a list of self-services, such as leave management including submission of leave, return-from-leave requests and inquiry about leave balances and previous leave requests; absence and attendance records; payroll (obtaining information related to the pay including pay-slips); team hierarchy and search for and contact information of an employee.

The app also allows the officials in charge to approve purchasing requisitions and leaves from anywhere round the clock. It also allows the managers to view notifications and follow appropriate procedure.

As part of its current campaign to encourage government employees to download and use the ‘smart employee’ app, DSG has allocated a range of prizes including valuable smart devices to the lucky winners.

Ahmad bin Humaidan, DSG Director-General, said the app is now available for all the 20,000 plus employees of 40 government entities using the DSG’s GRP systems.

By this, the app helps government entities save costs, considering that it is a shared service that spares them the trouble of paying extra expenses.

It also saves the time of the employee and the manager in following up the employees’ affairs, thereby serving the objective of bringing happiness to people, irrespective of their segments and categories.

Other features include the possibility of using one format for mobiles, tablets and computers, and also the possibility for an employee to write personal notes with alerts and also be able to send notes to managers.

The app also gives employees more privacy as it gives them the choice to show or hide their photo, job grade and mobile phone number. Besides, the app also allows managers to view a list of key performance indicators.
