The Jakarta administration launched at City Hall on Monday a new smartphone app named JakEVO to simplify the procedures for obtaining business permits (SIUP) and registration certificates (TDP).
Jakarta One-Stop Integrated Service Agency (PTSP) head Edy Junaedi said with the app, both of the permits can be obtained in less than an hour, without requiring applicants to visit the PTSP office or service points to get their SIUP and TDP.
“The applicants only need to upload required documents, tag their location and approve of the terms and conditions within the app. In around 30 minutes, they will receive the permits in an email,” Edy said.
JakEVo can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store and the App Store.
The city administration expressed hope that the initiative could help the country achieve a rank of 40 on the Ease of Doing Business index compiled by the World Bank. The country is currently ranked at 72, a jump of 19 places from its previous rank of 91.
In the World Bank publication “Doing Business 2017: Equal Opportunity for All”, Indonesia jumped 15 places to 91 from 106.
