Conceptualising the Tobago Information Technology Centre
The Tobago Information Technology Centre located at Signal Hill, Tobago, was born out of a bold initiative to establish a Medical Transcription Unit on the island. Erected by the Tobago House of Assembly in 2006, this Unit was envisioned as a viable commercial undertaking by the THA to serve medical professionals both locally and internationally, by converting medical records from oral and written forms to an electronic document.
Five years later, in 2011, this enterprise attracted a partnership with the Gillette Group of Companies and the initial undertaking was expanded to include a Contact Centre in addition to the Medical Transcription Unit. Although this relationship was short-lived, the then Secretary of Finance and Enterprise Development, Councillor Dr. Anselm London, nurtured the growth and development of the 211 Contact Centre. Its mandate was to bring the government and the people closer together.
Although the initial mandate of the 211 Contact Centre was to serve as a non- emergency ‘one stop hub’ from which people could obtain information on all Government services, it soon became fully established as a 24 Hour operation to accommodate calls of an emergency nature, ensuring that persons could access emergency services promptly and efficiently at the click of three buttons -211.
Today, the 211 Contact Centre has come of age. Tobago is the first English speaking Caribbean island to establish a 211 system which is now firmly instituted as one of four Units being managed by the TITL. The Tobago Information Technology Centre is now home to the cutting edge of telecommunications technology on the island.
