The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) a two-year collaboration between the two companies, will bring smart parking technology solutions to Bahrain and the wider GCC region with the introduction of monPARK, a wireless solution combining mobile-based parking payment platforms and mobile-based applications to reduce congestion.
The Economic Development Board (EDB) played a key role in the development of this partnership, as part of its efforts to support businesses looking to access the Bahraini and wider GCC market. Ms. Vivian Jamal, Executive Director, Business Development of the EDB said: “We are delighted to have been able to play a role in initiating this partnership. The Kingdom has long been regarded as one of the Gulf’s technological pioneers, and this partnership is an excellent example of bringing new and innovative solutions to the region as part of our drive to create a diversified economy. With the introduction of agreements such as these, Bahrain is able to embrace new ICT solutions, and the Bahrain Economic Development Board is actively looking for ways to support local businesses, and introduce them to international companies looking to invest in Bahrain and the region”.
T-Linx Technology Solutions Architects CEO Mr. Waleed Khalaf commented on the agreement, “We are delighted to be making this announcement today, which will help us to increase the range of services we are able to offer businesses in Bahrain and the GCC. Having access to leading international technology solutions with strong local support is key to the success of any project, and we believe that through our collaboration with LZ Group we will achieve the winning formula to benefit our customers.”
LZ Group CEO, Mr. Dragan Zivkovic also commented saying, “We are very pleased to be working with T-Linx as we look to expand our work in the Gulf region. Bahrain’s central location makes it the perfect place to access the wider GCC area, and the additional value of having a local partner will help us understand the needs of the market, and provide our local and regional clients with the necessary after-sales support and project management, thus delivering a truly individual experience to each project”.
Bahrain’s progress in the ICT industry is demonstrated by the 2012 UN eGovernment Readiness Survey, placing the Kingdom 2nd in the MENA region. The Survey placed Bahrain 36th of 192 countries worldwide in its application of ICT to provide access and inclusion for its citizens. In the Survey, Bahrain outperformed the world average across eReadiness, Web Measure, Infrastructure, Human Capital and e-Participation.
