SPIS’s e-Filing system helps social protection agencies organize all application forms, documents, and official files on a single, searchable registry, facilitating document management and retrieval. When internet access is unreliable, applicant data can be submitted and managed via multiple channels: online, offline and mobile (SMS and smartphone app).

Automated Eligibility Scoring

SPIS can help to ensure data-driven and equitable allocation of social assistance with automatic beneficiary eligibility scoring and payment calculation. Program managers can set and manage scoring criteria including assignment of weights, values and percentages to specific criteria to reflect the program’s targeting strategy. SPIS can then calculate the beneficiary’s eligibility for multiple programs simultaneously, as well as suggest a recommended assistance payment amount.
