Launch of integrated One.Motoring portal

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) and Green Dot Internet Services Pte Ltd (GDIS) today (25 Aug 2004) launch the newly integrated ONE.MOTORING (www.onemotoring.com.sg)  portal as the online gateway for all matters pertaining to motoring and road transport.

The new portal integrates, at one focal point, all information and services previously available on the former One.motoring, traffic.smart and OnePay.Hub sites.

In addition, it promises new services, richer content and greater accessibility, making it Singapore's premier one-stop internet portal for motorists, road users and the motor trade industry.

The new ONE.MOTORING portal offers a comprehensive range of vehicle-related information and services such as e-transactions and e-payments, as well as information on real-time traffic conditions, road projects, traffic management schemes and transport technologies under the new On-the-Roads section.

The introduction of the interest group and lifestyle sections featuring contests, promotions and articles, adds vibrancy to the portal. For instance, the SMS Classifieds service under the new 'Buy & Sell' section allows sellers to reach out to potential buyers quickly and affordably using their mobile phones.

The ONE.MOTORING portal will be made more accessible via channels such as the Short Messaging System (SMS) or the Wireless Application Protocol (WAP).

This increased accessibility caters to a population that is increasingly becoming more mobile, and enables users to access information and services on the portal even while on the move.

Through an open tender, LTA awarded the 5-year contract to manage and operate ONE.MOTORING to local e-business company, GDIS. Under the contract, LTA will continue to provide regulatory information and services for the portal while GDIS will actively operate the portal and enrich it with innovative services and contents as the private sector partner for the project. This will enable the portal to address a wider range of needs and interests of the users.

Says Ms Maria Choy, Director, Vehicle and Transit Licensing Division of LTA, "LTA is always on the look out for ways and means to deliver better service to our motorists and road users. Providing this premier one-stop motoring portal is one way we can give value to them. This collaboration with GDIS allows us to tap on the nimbleness and enterprise of the private sector, introducing an innovative facet to the regulatory role we have traditionally played. In addition, rationalising our operations and outsourcing our internet efforts in this way has yielded cost savings and service delivery efficiency."

Dr Francis Yeoh, CEO of GDIS, added "GDIS has had considerable experience and success in operating portals such as MIW (www.miw.com.sg), the portal for National Servicemen and CAN.COM (www.can.com.sg), a location-based interactive lifestyle portal. We are excited about the opportunity to operate ONE.MOTORING. The partnership model adopted by LTA is ideal as it combines the best of public and private sector strengths to give a win-win arrangement which will benefit all parties, particularly the users of the portal. While introducing some new services now, we are already working on many other interesting and innovative ideas which will see fruition in the near future."
