External Employment Management Information System (EEMIS)


The upsurge of Ugandans employed in the Middle East brought to light the weaknesses and abuse of the labour export process. While Uganda had bilateral agreements which granted employees’ rights, these rights were abused because of lack of system to licence exporters, ease job matching and attendant processes.

The Ministry of Gender Labour and Social Development turned to SMSONE to design and develop and integrated External Employment Management Information system to plug these gaps.


As the line ministry for labour management, the Ministry of Gender Labour and Social Development wanted to bring more accountability transparency and efficiency in the administration of external employment services via automation and digitization of key processes.


SMSONE delivered a secure and integrated External Employment Management System for the Ministry of Gender Labour and Social Development. The web-based system has already processed more than 100,000 job applications and licenced close to 100 export companies.


As a result of using the system:

  • Time to get licence reduced by over 85%
  • Eased access to real-time information and insights
  • Increased accountability and transparency
  • More job openings are filled bacause of the portal
  • Made it easier to idenitfy illegal exporters
  • Cost of papers, and transport have been eliminated
  • Improved the confidence of foreign agencies
  • Increased the overall job landscapre
