A tour of our most successful goverment projects and how we create a new digital infrastructure that changes the world every second. We discuss impact, standards and e-government technology.
e-Government Services are the Cornerstone of Modern Societies
Our most impactful work is related to e-government developments. In this respect, we’ve built new standards, won awards, created platforms for international collaboration and national organization among other major things. Jordhy Ledesma has carefully crafted platforms that can stand the test of time by adhering to international standards and pushing the infrastructure of the national Internet forward.
We’ve introduced intranet systems, CMS, advanced search facilities, custom made system, Coldfusion data stores, Microsoft .net real-time web services, and new software and designs that make our national government sites world-class. Even the Society for Information has taken notice, nominating our online producer for a global e-government award in 2005. We expect to continue our amazing string of achievements in e-Government in order to accelerate national growth and better life in our region thru practical digital interfaces.
What Makes an e-Government Site so Special?
Almost a year is required to produce an e-government site, they are among the most complex websites to produce. Agreement from dozens of managers, compliance with many laws and approval from multiple agencies is needed. We test for accessibility, speed, ease of use, content comprehensiveness, advance search facilities and three click information architecture. OPTIC and W3C standards heavily regulate the production of these websites. Excelling at e-Government equals success at the highest ranks of web production.
W3C Standards. e-Government websites are the only type in Latin America that must adhere to stringent standards due to international and national regulations. The W3C and OPTIC standards are *ip’s specialty and our adherence to W3C has been applauded several times.
State of the Art Document Management. Every governmental website developed by Information Providers has a full repository of all the legislation that is relevant to the institution. Saving visitors time and money and making thousands of pages accesible thru advanced search facilities. As an additional transparency measure, most of our e-government websites include an open government section with all the contracts, bills and critical information. Setting up these systems is a major conquest for Latin America and a great badge of prestige for our firm.
Patents. Our online producer programmed and designed the intellectual property registration system of the D.R. ONAPI went to win the Presidential Medal of Honor for this and other innovations.
New Principles. We make government social by integrating e-government into the lives of millions. Every major social network has been integrated to make government more accesible to all.
Innovation. The Superintendence of Banks’ website was the first government 2.0 property of the region. A massive production that shares the largest financial database of the country with economists and scholars from 93 countries.
Finance. Online financial calculators are present in almost all our e-government productions.
Mobile. All our productions are ready to be browsed in mobile devices, both tablets and smartphones in a variety of mobile systems.
Value. The governmental content follows a strict curation process to bring the best value to citizens.
Speed. Sites are stress tested to perform at optimal speed even in slow computers, promoting high traffic.
Agencies and Projects
ONFED, PRIL, PROEMPRESA, E-PYMES, CODESPA FOUNDATION
Working for these large group of European institutions helped us grasp the extent of European collaboration in Latin America.

CONFEDERATION OF DOMINICAN EMPLOYEES (COPARDOM)
The Confederation for Dominican Employees is one of the most dynamic websites that we’ve produced. Embeded TV channel, online forums (both public and private), realtime CMS, search facilities and a document management system keep this site fresh and updated to the minute so workers can be more efficient and demand their most current rights.

Working with Unipago to produce their corporate website meant rising to higher standards of production to comply with their demands and keep our country secure.
NATIONAL BANK FOR HOUSING (BNV)
The National Bank for Housing is one of the finest Dominican institutions in existence. BNV provides housing for millions of Dominicans.

INFOLED, DOMINICAN PRESIDENCY
Self-contained legal system to help lawyers navigate the justice system on their own.
