The Mayor and City Council of Georgetown (M&CC) yesterday inked a Memorandum of Understanding, which now paves the way for the municipal entity to gain Information Technology support from the world-renowned company, Polaris Software Lab Limited.
The municipality, in the wake of the launch of Plan IT several months ago, decided to secure the assistance of the Indian company which has a global presence to kick start the initiative, which will see all departments being fully computerised in their operation.
Speaking at a simple ceremony held at City Hall, yesterday, representatives of Polaris, Vice President Vivek Bharti and Assistant Vice President, Vikram Aligh, outlined the plans that were described as very important, strategic and critical that will be introduced to the municipality over the next eight weeks beginning today.
Acting Town Clerk, Yonette Pluck-Cort regarded the commencement of the IT initiative by Polaris as an historic occasion for the City Council. She expressed optimism that as one of the best companies in the world, Polaris will be able to ensure that the municipality is in a better position to take advantage of its software programmes.
With systems in place, Pluck-Cort said that the M&CC will be undoubtedly increasing its deliverables to the residents of the city even as its storage/retrieval of information system is improved.
The collaboration between the municipality and the Indian Company has been endorsed by the local Indian High Commission in the person of Second Secretary, Kedar Singh Gussain. And according to City Mayor, Hamilton Green, he will be looking forward for a continuum of support from the Commission.
