Summary description of the project:

The EC directive on services in the internal European market strives for simplified procedures and formalities when it comes to the establishment of businesses and the cross border provision of services. eGovernment could be a solution to those challenges, but existing solutions are still not sufficiently addressing the needs of the users.

Egoprise aims to improve the business orientation of public services. During the project, the most challenging business-related processes and weaknesses will be identified in public institutions. Changes to tools, workflows and procedures will be implemented and supported by technical eGovernment means. Especially for enterprises in the rural BSR, eGovernment solutions are an important precondition for ameliorated access to information and qualified personnel.

egoprise target groups and key messages are:

SMEs:

- egoprise uses e-government to make public administrations more customer-focused.

- Rural businesses have improved access to the labour market throughout the Baltic Sea region.

- SMEs boost their innovative capacity by networking with research establishments.

- sgoprise supports the integration of small and medium-sized enterprises in public networks and company clusters.

- eGovernment helps companies save time and money.

Politicians

- egoprise makes public administrations more efficient.

- Readily accessible public administrations promote business enterprise in the countryside.

- Customer-oriented e-government can strengthen a region’s economic performance.

Authorities:

- egoprise helps public administrations to develop customer-friendly processes.

-eGovernment optimises the work of public administrations and helps them save time and money.

- eGovernment frees up additional capacity for new and better services.


Achievements of the project so far:

Egoprise focuses on the development of end-user oriented eGovernment services. Considering this philosophy, the project identified and selected those processes between public authorities and SMEs, having a high need for optimisation for business end user. For this purpose, BSR wide interviews with SMEs, public authorities, relevant umbrella organisations as well as eGovernment experts were carried out. On top of this a desk research identified most cost-intensive information obligations for SMEs in all BSR Countries & Belarus. Based on the recommendations egoprise finally selected processes / process chains for an in-depth workflow analysis to prepare optimization of the services & workflows for later implementation:

DE, LV business registration,

EE, DK: building permit,

FI: business premises register

EE, FI, LV, DE: employment of foreign labour

Selecting similar processes in different countries provided the opportunity for cross-country comparisons, -learning and -conclusion drawing.

Thanks to a detailed process modelling, specific organisational design potentials for optimizing processes via e-services and workflow reorganizations were identified. All results are summed up in BSR-wide guidelines, published at www.egoprise.eu. For optimized transnational procedures egoprise developed action plans for multilateral business registration and foreign labour employment. The plans describe future scenarios for ideal multilateral processes and provide country wise step-by-step recommendations for technical, organisational and legal changes to set up the ideal cross-border processes. The plans were developed in close cooperation with responsible authorities in the BSR countries.

As follow-up of the analyses, the implementation of different E-services and connected to this changes in workflows of pilot authorities started. Some highlights are:

FI: Business premises register eService in Kahava, Virtual service center for foreign labour employment and digital greenhouse in

Seinäjoki Region,

DK: Portal for business region Århus, providing a.o. digital welcome packages for better foreign labour employment and integration, Restructured building permit process in Syddjurs, Digital greenhouses in Syddjurs, Norddjurs and Favrskov,

DE: Application wizard for business registration, SME service portal a.o. with employment foreign labour roadmap & online public procurement platform,

EE: Virtual service point for employment of foreign labour, Application wizard for building permit, Digital greenhouse for SMEs in Narva

LV: Interactive foreigner employment service center, Digital greenhouse of the Latvian Chamber of Commerce.

www.egoprise.eu provides a comprehensive overview of all outputs. To enhance the quality of the outputs egoprise has unlocked additional 875.000€ complementary funding. The handbook: Transnational Aspects of End-user Oriented E-services in the BSR, available in book stores, contains a compilation of selected outputs of the project.
