iQALA CITY SERVICE CENTER

The iQala project solves the following tasks set in the Message of the President of Kazakhstan: to support businesses, to eliminate administrative barriers, to reduce corruption risks, and to introduce digitalization in public services.

One of the purposes of creating the Center is the elimination of corruption risks that arose due to the lack of contact between the service provider and the service recipient.

Providing online services will reduce the terms of receiving services.

The iQalakz_bot Telegram bot has also been created enabling clients to order instructions for obtaining an electronic invoice and a certificate of the National Certification Center of the Republic of Kazakhstan (electronic digital signature), and receiving utility bills from the Astana-ERC.

To improve the service quality, iQala has opened a self-service zone with three personal computers equipped with webcams and an Internet connection.

In the self-service zone, the staff will assist you with obtaining an electronic digital signature on the e-government website Egov.kz.

All these innovations were introduced for the sake of convenience and to increase the digital literacy of people.
