Tech solutions to benefit veterans

The National Committee for Disaster Management (NCDM) and the Cambodian Veterans Association (CVA) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Dragonfly Fintech (Cambodia) Plc and Proximax Co, Ltd to implement the use of information technology (IT) solutions in managing disasters and veterans’ data.

The MoU was finalised on January 2 by NCDM vice-president Kun Kim, who is also the CVA secretary-general, Dragonfly Fintech general manager Richard Chung and Proximax founder and executive director Lon Wong at the CVA headquarters in Kandal province’s Kien Svay district.

NCDM adviser Keo Vy told The Post on January 3 that the aim of the MoU was to cooperate with the IT sector to jointly create the Volunteer Management Information System (VMIS) and proprietary apps for the NCDM and CVA.

“The apps are intended to be used for locations supplying information concerning veterans and disasters in Cambodia, in the region and around world,” he said.

He added that the apps would also play an important role in providing information regarding danger signs so that people could be prepared for problems in advance.

Vy explained that the company partners would work to integrate the IT systems. The VMIS and the apps would be created with the latest ProximaX Sirius technology.

Kim said at the signing ceremony that the project would be extremely important for carrying out disaster relief work and managing the data of veterans across the Kingdom.

“The VMIS system will be used for managing veterans’ confidential data. It handles large quantities of data quickly and will be effective for both institutions,” he said.

Chung said this cooperation would lend strong support to the companies’ efforts to provide payment and financial services to Cambodian veterans as well as improve their economic conditions and standards of living.
