SUCCESS STORY: PEGASE EU PROJECT IN JERUSALEM
AXSOS has been working on the PEGASE project, for the German representative office in Jerusalem, since 2015. The PEGASE project involves direct EU financial assistance to support the Palestinian authorities. This is intended to make it possible to build an independent Palestinian state.
AXSOS took over the development of an application that handles all the EU's payment transactions to the Palestinian authorities.
The challenges here were posed above all by the complexity of the process to be mapped. For example, previously, it was not possible to make a transaction without being in contact with an IT employee. In addition, the AXSOS team was under great pressure because the German representative office in Jerusalem covers 50 percent of the salaries of staff at the Palestinian authorities, and has to transfer these in good time.
The solution was to automate the entire process. By doing so, the risk of technical problems during the payment processes has been minimised, payments are always executed within the specified period of time, and the processing of a payment is no longer tied to an IT employee. Due to additional backup and disaster recovery mechanisms, the data in the application is also stored securely; these are points that were a particular priority for the German representative office. The overall simplification of the process also resulted in significant time and cost savings.
ABOUT THE EU
The EU values are common to the member countries in a society in which inclusion, tolerance, justice, solidarity and non-discrimination prevail. These values are an integral part of our European way of life. The EU has delivered more than half a century of peace, stability and prosperity, helped raise living standards and launched a single European currency: the euro. More than 340 million EU citizens in 19 countries now use it as their currency and enjoy its benefits. The European Union is a unique economic and political union between 28 European countries that together cover much of the continent.
The predecessor of the EU was created in the aftermath of the Second World War. The first steps were to foster economic cooperation: the idea being that countries that trade with one another become economically interdependent and so more likely to avoid conflict.The result was the European Economic Community (EEC), created in 1958, and initially increasing economic cooperation between six countries: Belgium, Germany, France, Italy, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. Since then, 22 other members joined and a huge single market (also known as the 'internal' market) has been created and continues to develop towards its full potential. What began as a purely economic union has evolved into an organization spanning policy areas, from climate, environment and health to external relations and security, justice and migration. A name change from the European Economic Community (EEC) to the European Union (EU) in 1993 reflected this.
