The policy has set a number of ambitious goals for providing services, including100 per cent proactive and automated services; 90 per cent integrated services; and 90 per cent service provision without the physical presence of the customer, according to Dubai Media Office.

As for service delivery channels, the policy aims for 100 per cent conversion to shared channels; 95 per cent self-service; 95 per cent digital adoption; in addition to 90 per cent average channel evaluation.

Under the Services 360 policy, the Dubai Government is expected to achieve annual financial savings exceeding Dhs1bn during the next five years and the elimination of nine million physical customer visits to service centers annually.

The policy is also expected to free up over 300,000 working hours in the Dubai Government annually.

The Services 360 policy was developed with the General Secretariat of The Executive Council and the Dubai Model Center team in collaboration with the Dubai Digital Authority. The Dubai Model Center will oversee the implementation of the policy and ensure the implementation of the approved methodologies, evaluate the achievement of targets, and submit periodic reports.

These include a digital-first experience based on the provision of digital and real-time services, as well as adopting the digital identity (UAE Pass) as a unified entry system for all government services, while providing full support to the customer.

“I have the utmost confidence in the capabilities of our dedicated team in achieving unprecedented leaps in government performance. Services 360 will significantly improve the way we address government work in Dubai by bolstering the government to operate as one united entity,” said Sheikh Hamdan.
