Dubai Government Develops Mobile App for Real Estate Project Owners

In an effort to modernize the Dubai real estate, DEWA, RTA, Dubai Municipality and the Mohammed bin Rashid Housing Establishment jointly develop the TM app, to be launched next month.

The team of four Dubai government entities says the app will improve services for real-estate project owners.

The TM app will enable users to access databases of four different government entities at the same time, allowing them to accomplish transactions and view work progress and approval status in a matter of seconds, according to a statement.

The app has been developed by an in-house technical team, consisting of experts and IT engineers from the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), Dubai Municipality and Mohammed bin Rashid Housing Establishment.

It will limit the need to travel to and from the four different government entities, by allowing people to follow up on the status of their projects, and obtain government approvals and NOCs for construction permits, connections, and other permits.

The ‘Red Team’, comprised of members of the four government entities, is developing the TM app under the City Makers initiative launched by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, to boost the services of government entities.

In its first stage, the app aims to provide necessary information for project owners, such as the status of government approvals and NOCs.

“The app will also enhance transparency in interactions between customers and the concerned entity, thus increasing efficiency,” a statement released by the team said.

The team recently held a workshop for contractors, consultants and real-estate owners to exchange ideas about the initiative ahead of the app launch.

“The TM app will help contractors, consultants and property owners to accomplish their work to high professional standards and in a very short time,” said Moza Al Akraf, CIO of Information Technology at DEWA, and President of the TM initiative.

“We are confident that our initiative will be received positively by the construction and the infrastructure-development companies in Dubai as well as by real-estate developers and property owners.”
