While the trend toward digitalization has been ongoing for some time, the onset of COVID-19 hit the fast-forward button for digital transformation. As companies adapt to the new normal, they are looking for robust technologies to help them succeed in their digital transformation journey. Technology is no longer just a business enabler. It now acts as a core to every business model, regardless of the industry. Most organizations lack resources and deep knowledge about digital technologies. They need a team of proven experts who can immediately influence change, execute at tremendous speed, and guide them through their entire digital journey.
This is where Object Technology Solutions India (OTSI), a global digital services and consulting company, fits the bill.

Transforming Organizations via Digital Solutions
OTSI has transformed Andhra Pradesh State Transport Department by providing complete digitization solutions by integrating the portal with Aadhar, Vahan database, financers and insurance companies to make vehicle purchases hassle-free and seamless for the citizens of the State. This has built transparency in dealings across the department functions and drastically reduced RTO offices’ queues by more than 80 percent.
The simplified step toward digitization provides approximately 76 online Services for the transport department. Some digitalized services include: registration of passenger and commercial vehicles, issuing of driving licenses, vehicle permits, furnishing and fitness of the vehicles, payment of commercial taxes, citizen services, and renewal of vehicle registration, finance and insurance.
The digital transformation of the Andhra Pradesh State Transport Department has been around for a few years driving an online model which doesn’t require people to visit the RTO. This more successful model has the potential to be replicated in other States across India for better citizen services and to bring transparency and efficiency in the functioning of Transport Departments.
OTSI has developed an intuitive web and mobile application allowing easy navigation based on the Aadhar card for Andhra Pradesh State Transport Department. The time taken for issuing a permanent number for the vehicle has been reduced from 90 days to one day, which is unimaginable in the citizen services parlance. The solution directs the delivery of this permanent number to your address mentioned on the Aadhar card. Vehicle and owner’s pictures are captured digitally at the time of purchase of the vehicle, which can act as a recovery tool for the Police department in case of the theft of the vehicle.
