Smart Labour app at Gitex Technology Week 2016 – Now, innovation is for everyone.
400 entrepreneurs and 250 investors and mentors from over 52 countries are here to take the next step in smart technology. Gitex Technology week is back!
Smart Labour – the UAE’s first mobile phone app aimed at blue-collar workers – will be participating in the 35th edition of Gitex Technology Week to ensure that the biggest chunk of the United Arab Emirates’ workforce is a part of the national and global movement towards a smart life.
In line with the vision of Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, the world’s third-largest technology exhibition will prove to be the perfect platform to showcase innovative services like Smart Labour.
So, what is Smart Labour?
A unique Dubai-based start-up by Black & White Computer Trading Co LLC, Smart Labour is an app dedicated to the blue-collared workers in the UAE. By providing visual and engaging content that addresses the needs of a worker in the UAE, the app acts as a resource for low-skilled workers (that make up over 50 per cent of the country’s workforce) and creates a much-needed connection between employers and employees by providing solutions in labour management.
How does the app work?
Simply put, the app is a conduit between a blue-collared worker and the smart world. By bringing the benefits of technology into the lives of low-skilled workers, Smart Labour enhances the happiness and quality of life at the grassroots level of the UAE’s workforce. The app currently offers innovatively designed learning courses in English, Arabic, financial management and basic health and safety practices, where progress is linked with earning talk time and data. So, workers immediately receive the bonus of reconnecting with their families through telephone calls or video conferencing in their pursuit of personal and professional success.
