LIME recently won a bid to manage the electronic mail platform of the Ministry of Science, Technology, Energy and Mining, effective October 1, 2013.
LIME came out ahead of a field of competitors who had bid to offer e-mail solutions to the ministry which has a mandate to secure affordable energy supplies, energy security and diversification as well as to facilitate the use of advanced technology for national development.
LIME's Head of Government and Enterprise Norman Naar said the firm's winning bid was more than testament to its strong market presence.
"We are particularly impressed by this ministry's decision and we view it as an endorsement of the robust and technologically sound solutions we continue to offer the public and private sectors," he said.
LIME, meanwhile, said its selection could become a key reference for other government entities undertaking the need for hosted e-mail services.
The company is responsible for the provision of the hosted e-mail service for the Jamaica Constabulary Force's (JCF) approximately 11,000 members across the island.
Said LIME: "The implementation of the solution at the JCF has resulted in significant savings as well as more efficient and timely communication between officers."
