Best Estonian 2015 e-service is e-Residency application portal ({{commentsTotal}})

Estonia's best e-services are the e-Residency application portal, Barking, SportID, Estonian Movie Database and services offered by the Road Administration.

On Tuesday evening, the Estonian Information System Authority (RIA) announced the results of its best e-services competition for private, public and third sector services.

According to Aet Rahe, the chairperson of the judging panel, the e-service competition is the highest national recognition to domestic service developers.

The title Best Estonian E-service 2015 went to e-Residency application portal, which during its opening week increased the number of e-residency applications over tenfold.

According to Rahe, the portal's strength is its strong international potential that helps to improve the Estonian economy.

The award for the best public service went to the Road Administration, which allows users to run background checks on vehicles, renew drivers licences and register cars to new owners online. According to the Road Administration, online drivers licence system alone will help to save around 5,000 working hours this year.

The best private e-service is Barking, a smart parking app that lets people who have a vacant parking spot rent it out and earn extra money.

Estonian Movie Database won the third sector category. The database opened in 2012 and currently contains entries about 16,000 films, 9,000 filmmakers and 200 production companies.

The people's choice award went to SportID, an online environment that lets companies easily manage their employee sports benefits, receiving only one invoice per month instead of separate receipts from hundreds of service providers.

The judging panel assessed the importance, quality, comfort, international potential, social and economic benefit and the substantive and technical novelty of each competing e-service.

RIA received a total of 134 applications in four separate categories.
