For Immediate Release: Dili – Timor-Leste

Peace Dividend Trust Breaks Ground with the Use of SMS.

Since February 2008 Peace Dividend Trust (PDT) has been conducting micro-matchmaking activities in 6 districts, and 9 since February 2009. These include Lautem, Baucau, Viqueque, Manatuto, Manufahi, Ainaro, Cova Lima, Bobonaro and Oecusse. These activities are focused on creating, and or facilitating business transactions in rural areas between local and international buyers and local suppliers. Using local on the ground knowledge and the Peace Dividend Trust Building Markets database the micromatchmaking team has managed over 4,300 business transactions in the above 9 rural districts. These range from the provision of halal chicken to UN Police officers, medium scale cattle transactions internal and external to Timor-Leste in addition to property construction and rental.

Given the large amount of business information being generated across such a large geographical space monitoring and reporting of this activity has been critical for success. As result the PDT Micromatchmaking Team has pioneered the systematic use of SMS (Short Message Service) facilities to send and receive information for operations implementation and reporting.

All PDT Micromatchmaking Teams send a coded SMS message to PDT HQ in Dili at the end of every business day detailing the transactions conducted with information on buyer, supplier, and good/service. Spread across all teams this means that PDT HQ has received over 2,100 SMS messages from its district staff informing HQ of their activities. This has enable efficiencies, and saved a considerable amount of time and money in ensuring the delivery of a sound and productive service to buyers and suppliers in Timor-Leste.

Peace Dividend Trust is also moving forward with more ambitious plans to use blast bulk SMS for the delivery of tender / contract alerts in the future.
