Ugandan Revenue Authority deploys VCE to shore-up collection

The Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) has said that by deploying the Vblock 340 platform with a VCE Vision software dashboard, the agency has shored-up its collection ability, reports ITRealms.

According to the Assistant Commissioner for Information Technology (IT) Corporate Services at URA, Mr. James Kizza, everyday tools like the intranet are very slow, and URA could not but take advantage of new developments like cloud.

He also said that tax evasion in the country has been put under check thanks to the Vblock 340 platform with a VCE Vision software dashboard allowing the URA to no longer experience the debilitating effects of downtime.

“With a simple-to-operate infrastructure, and fewer components and cables to manage, the IT team is firmly in control and can see key performance metrics at a glance,” he said.

Kizza stressed that tax evasion hurts economies and for less-developed countries it could deprive governments of the money needed to transform their nations’ prospects, noting that URA is there to ensure that this does not happen.

The Commissioner further said that moving to a Vblock 340 platform with a VCE Vision software dashboard means that the URA no longer experiences the debilitating effects of downtime.


“With a simple-to-operate infrastructure, and fewer components and cables to manage, the IT team is firmly in control and can see key performance metrics at a glance. Meanwhile, improved uptime and application performance ensures greater productivity and less risk of revenue leakage. Cross-border trade is able to function more efficiently, too,” he said.
