DAFZA to launch its first mobile app at GITEX 2013

To streamline its electronics services for tenants, Dubai Airport Freezone ( DAFZA ) will launch its first official mobile app during GITEX 2013. With the key objective to make DAFZA services more accessible to existing and new businesses, the app will feature most of DAFZA ‘s electronic services currently online, servicing tenants and potential business investors around the clock.

In an effort to maintain its position as the number one free zone in the world and to continue facilitating foreign investment into Dubai, DAFZA has grown to be become the region’s fastest growing free zone.

Buthaina Hamad bin Fahad, Director of Information Communications & Technology DAFZA , said, ” Dubai Airport Freezone ‘s first app will provide potential and existing tenants with highly engaging and qualitative services, already available on an online platform, but made more convenient through their smartphones. Currently according to Google Inc., smartphone penetration is at 62 per cent in the UAE, one of the highest penetration rates on earth. This platform will help DAFZA build an interactive relationship with customers, potential investors and employees.”

“Coinciding with Dubai Government’s plans to make more services available online, we are making the shift, progressively, towards smart-Government services from October until April 2014,” added Buthaina.

The uniquely designed app boasts distinct navigation tools. Users will have access to, and can request, over 120 services such as new business enquiries, forms, finder options and a listing of client directories that include details of over 1600 companies.

Exclusively designed and offering great functionality, the app also features location maps and directions to DAFZA , along with other information based on the timings and routes of the buses and metro services within Dubai.

DAFZA constantly keeps abreast with the current trends and this time it is delivering another channel to communicate and engage with tenants. The free app will soon be integrated with other federal and local authorities.
