Muscat: The award was presented by His Excellency Dr. Ali Al Shidhani, the Undersecretary for Communications and Information Technology of the Sultanate of Oman, in the presence of other notable industry leaders from both the public and private sectors.

Tomy Bosco, Business Area Director for Oman at Nortal, expressed his gratitude at the ceremony, stating, “We are thrilled to receive this recognition which stands as a testament to the impactful work we have been doing in the Sultanate. Initiatives such as the Oman Business Platform and the forthcoming Government Unified Portal (GUP) are significantly shaping the future of public services in Oman.” Adding to the sentiments, Taavi Einaste, CEO for Nortal Middle East and Africa, highlighted, “Oman has made incredible strides towards personal government services in recent years, enhancing user accessibility and efficiency across the board.”

Nortal is a global strategic partner for governments, healthcare institutions, leading businesses, and Fortune 500 companies. Among its notable projects in Oman, Nortal was instrumental in developing the Invest Easy portal, which dramatically improved the ease of doing business in the Sultanate, and the pioneering Oman e-Census 2020, the first fully register-based census in the GCC.
