The east Jutland public authority is ready to launch a full digital service with Fujitsu providing the necessary software free of charge

Ebeltoft municipality on the east Jutland coast is set to become the first public authority in Denmark to offer a full digital service to its citizens. This will enable electronic documents to be signed with a digital signature which is legally binding. Fujitsu is the provider the software system, which is being offered to all Danish municipalities free of charge. The system needs to be installed on the user’s PC; every citizen and company in the municipality will now be advised on how to obtain the necessary software. According to MD of Fujitsu Morten Svendsen, Ebeltoft Municipality was geared up and ready to run with electronic self-service on all their official forms in just two weeks.

 

One of the principal benefits of digital administration is that it will make municipalities' working procedures more efficient. By 1 September this year all public authorities in Denmark must satisfy 16 criteria regarding digital administration which have been set by the government's Digital Taskforce. The news was reported by Computerworld online.
