The PRC has recently implemented its Web-Based Queue Management System (eQMS) throughout each of its frontline offices in the country. This is so customers will no longer be hassled in queuing at PRC premises.
The commission’s own Information and Communication Technology Service (ICTS) developed the Web-Based Queue Management System so that their customers will be able to transact with no difficulties by just using their mobile devices.
Customers will be able to view the waiting list as well as keep an eye on their queues just through their screens. This way, they will be able to manage their time well and reduce personal contact transactions.
The commission said the new system is proof that they consistently improve their online services to adapt to the “new normal” and a response towards the needs of the masses in an efficient and convenient way possible. The commission has already published the guidelines regarding its implementation through PRC Resolution No. 1273. This is so users and administrators alike will be guided upon using the Web-Based Queue Management System (eQMS).
With all the efforts the commission has done, what do you say your opinion would be? Moreover, is it timely that the PRC is hiring during the current health crisis?
