Qatar’s Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MoCI) has introduced new services to the distributors’ supply program. The new services are available on the Tamween services platform on the ministry’s website. 

This initiative is part of the ministry’s efforts to continue its digital transformation and electronic service growth, as well as meeting the needs of distributors and allowing them to complete transactions electronically without having to go back to the Supply and Strategic Inventory Department at MoCI.

Smart Card Reader System application, renewal of distributor license, and updating distributor details are among the e-services added to the distributors’ supply program.

According to the reports, “The Smart Card Reader System application includes services such as: Dispensing supplies using the ration card via the distributor’s computer; providing a daily report of distributors’ sales (showing distributors’ daily sales and sold quantities); providing a report of unsold quantities (showing remaining quantities in distributors’ inventories and outlets); dispensing materials via the mobile application (includes mobile purchases from the distributor’s outlet).”

The service of renewing the distributor’s license requires renewing the annual license for the selling of food and fodder supplies one month before the license expires, and after the application has been authorized by the relevant agency.

“The distributor info update service enables the commercial registry and license information to be updated through the program, along with attaching a copy of the required documents. The user can also update his contact information (e-mail address, phone number), or change the manager-in-charge,” as per the reports.

The Ministry of Commerce and Industry previously has added a collection of new e-services to the electronic supply services program. The addition of the new services brings the total number of e-services to 24.
