Challenge

Sense Consulting took part in several regulatory reform projects under the e-Guillotine brand. The purpose of the projects was to help governments execute reforms in order to cut down the regulatory burden on businesses and citizens. A common challenge in every country was to involve all stakeholders and make the process of the reform transparent and broadly accepted.

Netgen's role

Netgen has been engaged as technology partner in Vietnam since 2010. The goal was to build a web application which should have one simple interface for dossier management used by regulatory reform task force and other public sector stakeholders and a public interface for informing and engaging citizens and businesses. We have been improving the application as it was expanding to new countries such as Armenia and Kyrgyzstan.

e-Guillotine in Armenia

We implemented and customized the e-Guillotine package for Armenia regulatory reform project in 2013. This version features 2 separate interfaces: one for public engagement and the other for dossier management by the reform task force.

Technologies

The base system for content management we chose eZ Publish CMS on LAMP with heavy usage of eZ Find and Solr for searching and filtering hundreds of thousands of dossiers. The latest version features fully responsive interface that can be used by editors and the public at the same time.

Eight years of cooperation with Netgen confirm that the stereotype of disaccord between business consultants and IT is simply not accurate. The development of services, adaptation of IT solutions, and proactive collaboration on complex projects in challenging international markets demonstrate a high level of complementarity between the consulting skills and IT knowledge.
