JPS Executive Director Mohammad Syaiful Johad said, regional apparatus organizations (OPD) were able to take advantage of technological developments to create more effective and efficient public service innovations.
"Moreover, various public services can now be accessed online, faster and easier. Even this online service can prevent KKN as there is no face-to-face meeting between officers and the community," he expressed, Tuesday (12/22).
He explained the existence of public service innovations, either application or web-based would also be of great supports to residents, as they could handle various needs from anywhere.
