[Press Release] UAE Family Development Foundation awards everteam for its contribution towards a Smart and Paperless Office

28th of February 2017 – UAE, Family Development Foundation (FDF), the leading non-profit organization in family affairs, awarded everteam’s UAE branch for its contribution towards a smart and paperless office.

In the recent years, the organization has been working hard to provide wider and more effective care of women and children. With the increase of various programs and services offered, FDF started to appreciate the importance of time when it comes to paper work and documentation. Therefore, there was a central need to implement solutions to facilitate the access and tracking of all documents issued by the FDF. The target system had to be accurate, effective, and sustainable.

During the past year, FDF had chosen everteam as a provider of enterprise Correspondence and Document Management Solutions. With its advanced capabilities, and the support of a reliable team, FDF were able to automate their complex document flows within the organization, reduce storage spaces, and provide easy access to their archives electronically, hence greatly decreasing costs.

As a recognition for being a partner in this leap towards technological advancement, the organization decided to offer everteam the annual award of achievement. The award was delivered to Mr. Hani Hannoun, everteam Country Manager in UAE, by governmental officials in a ceremony that took place on 13th of December 2016 in St. Regis Hotel, Abu Dhabi, UAE.

It would have been impossible for FDF to expand its services and programs with all that paper work, which at a certain time, started to slow down the procedures and stand as obstacle in the path of its growth and success. Everteam’s Correspondence Tracking and Document Management Solutions provided easy and secured access to all FDF’s documents including incoming and outgoing letters, emails, faxes and others. The system was able not only to reduce employees’ time and effort, but also to transform operations into paperless and smart ones. The significant digital transformation in correspondence activities echoed UAE’s plan through FDF to advance in its E-Government strategy.

This initiative also came as a proof of FDF’s commitment to the environmental care which has always been a major concern in UAE. In fact FDF was able to increase focus on viable practices by adopting the use of resources in a more efficient and environmentally responsible way towards “Greener IT”. By sharply reducing the use of paper, printing, scanning and physical document delivery, and with the adoption of latest technologies in both software and hardware solutions, FDF had in fact contributed to building a highly eco-friendly environment.

The remarkable contribution that everteam made on the impact of this fundamental transformation was the main reason for FDF’s recognition. The teams’ efforts and continuous support to FDF internal teams, were key to achieving success. Everteam was recognized by FDF top management for being a strategic partner in FDF’s ECM project. The award came as a translation of an outstanding business relation, which resulted in a satisfying mission handled in a professional approach throughout its entire lifecycle.

“Getting this award makes me really happy. Everteam has just written another success story, and this award is merely a reflection of a well-deserved professional business behavior. I would like to thank the various team members from both everteam and FDF sides who have directly and indirectly contributed in the success of this project. I would also like to thank FDF IT Manager, executives, and UAE officials for their vision, trust and appreciation. After all, our clients’ satisfaction is our objective, and it is what keeps us aiming higher”, says Mr. Hani Hannoun, UAE Country Manager of everteam.
