Mumbai based Highbar Technologies, an HCC group company, a SAP partner and the most preferred Information Technology solutions provider for the infrastructure industry unveiled their remarkable feat to bring in business transformation at Goa State Pollution Control Board (GSPCB) by deploying SAP e-governance solutions. The newly developed e-office was recently launched by Minister for Environment and Forest Mr. Rajendra Arlekar in the presence of GSPCB chairman Mr. Jose Manuel Noronha and other board officials.

GSPCB’s vision to accomplish paperless governance came live through Highbar’s innovative e-portal “Sustainable Workflow Platform” through which all the approvals will be facilitated online. Helping the board to be more efficient, this major Digital initiative will ensure paperless and transparent governance by leveraging information technology to undo unnecessary delays and the whole office proceedings would be available more seamlessly.

This initiative is a major leap towards our commitment of making the board more accountable & approachable for the residents of Goa. By discarding the paper-based system we are also doing our part in saving trees from being cut as unnecessary paper use leads to wastage. We are thankful to team Highbar Technologies for their extensive support & handholding to make this dream project come live.”
