The “Beep Pakistan” application will soon be made available in federal government offices, according to the Ministry of IT and Telecommunication (MoITT).
According to sources at MoITT, the ministry has been working on the “Beep Pakistan” application and will test-launch it next week.
The application test would probably start with Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Federal Minister for IT and Telecom Aminul Haque.
For government workers to communicate internationally, the National Information Technology Board (NITB) created the “Beep Pakistan” app.
Officials from the MoITT claim that the testing of this application has just been finished and that no bugs were discovered. The ministry now wants to pre-launch it among government agencies to conduct extensive testing.
The 41 federal departments and ministries’ personnel will be moved to this program for international communication, according to authorities from the Ministry of IT. This application now has several functions, such as audio-video calling, document sharing, and video conferencing.
According to IT Ministry members, this application would initially launch on a private cloud. In three months, National Telecommunication Corporation will finish hosting. Initially, Beep Pakistan would only be available to 500,000 customers.
The MoITT officials claim that this platform will be a substitute for Facebook, WhatsApp, and other social media services and that using it will protect sensitive government data.
The National Telecom & Information Security Board has certified that the software is safe from outside interference and cyberattacks.
