Development of the verification and inspection portal for UNVIM

UNOPS / UNVIM / Djibouti - The development of the verification and inspection database to increase UNVIM's efficiency in processing shipments

SDG 1 - No Poverty
SDG 2 - Zero Hunger
SDG 10 - Reduced Inequalities

Project Detail

Background

The United Nations Verification and Inspection Mechanism (UNVIM) and the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) sought to establish a verification and inspection database that would effectively operationalize and manage services due to poor operationalization and management of services in the processing of shipments all over the world.

Solution

In light of this, the UNVIM sought to establish a system through which they would be advised of upcoming shipments. Bewsys was contracted to design and develop a verification and inspection database system that functioned as an interface between UNVIM and stakeholders, processing clearance requests, archiving records, notifying requesting parties of missing and/or extra documents, and/or forthcoming inspections, and audits and summary reports. The database was set up to host the UNOPS server, and the system was built with features including sending and receiving notifications when new requests were filed, a user-friendly interface, forms, and access control. 

Impact

The impact of this new database was efficient in that it allowed the UNOPS to accomplish its functions without relying on data from external stakeholders. This has also aided in the monitoring and inspection of commercial and bilateral aid sent to Yemeni ports. The UNVIM can now deliver huge sums of food and other supplies to disaster stricken places thereby contributing to the achievement of UN SDGs 1 (reducing poverty), 2 (reducing hunger), and 10 (reducing inequality) (reduced inequalities).

Working with Bewsys has been a tremendous journey. We have not reached our destination, but we are enjoying the ride. Although it was supposed to be a corporate function, at meetings, we built rapport and trust with the consultants, and at the same time, they enhanced efficiency and collaboration.

Very professional in their work and client communication. I was really impressed with their ability to meet all their deliverable schedules and, above all, submit a comprehensive user manual. I will recommend them to other projects.

UNDP Phillipines

Bewsys has been able to deliver what was expected based on the agreed timelines. The inception mission in the Philippines has been successful, and discussions with various stakeholders have been fruitful. Bewsys showed eagerness to know more about the unique requirements of the portal upon hearing it from firsthand users. They were able to accommodate various questions, comments, suggestions, and recommendations from different stakeholders, mainly from the government side, with each agency with unique requirements.

International Organisation for Migration (IOM)

Bewsys staff are results-oriented and adapted a lot of tasks, and were flexible to ensure the solution they provided was the best. A feather in their cap!

Association of African Universities

There is a great need for digital systems development in Africa. I think it will be essential to continue supporting institutions such as Bewsys so they can do these jobs better. Also, we need to think about solutions that can be deployed quickly to support other institutions where there is a match in need.
