Quidgest strengthens its presence in El Salvador by implementing a management system to support the community of War Veterans

Quidgest is currently implementing a management system designed to create a centralized register to support the community of War Veterans in El Salvador. The project is divided into two phases, focusing on the census of the target population and the development of features and services that identify their needs, with the most appropriate and effective response.

To perform a project with such an impact and relevance, Quidgest decided to partner the company Soluciones SST, a reputable Salvadoran company specialized in the field. This project is also part of the growth strategy adopted by Quidgest in countries of the region, which has also developed projects in Nicaragua.

The first phase covered the census Veterans, a total of more than 30,000 former combatants. Once the community was identified, proceeded a stage of analysis and data migration of existing records. The information collected thus allows immediate access to the history of each war veteran, as well as printing ID cards. This history contains relevant data on the damage suffered during the conflict, the characterization of the current household and their health status, employment, income, and other related information of all ex-combatants.

At a later stage, it is planned to implement a pension system and scholarships for survivors and their families, based on decision support information provided by the initial system. This project arises from a donation made by the Republic of Taiwan – China to the Department of Citizen Participation, Transparency and Corruption in El Salvador.

Furthermore, the project reinforces the presence of the technological company in the country and the region, after the implementation in 2013 of a Balanced Scorecard system in the Technical Secretariat of the Presidency of the Republic of El Salvador. This system was adapted to enable the Government to improve management of public policies and better use of funds received from multilateral agencies, by creating a monitoring system by indicators (social, political and economic).

In 2014, Quidgest was also selected by the National Electrical Transmission Company (Enatrel) in Nicaragua to provide, a management software that allows to monitor continuously the organization’s performance, in partnership with a Latin American brand.
