Emirates Post highlighted its indigenously developed POS system which automates counters and back office workflow. The system enables counter staff to deliver multiple services, both postal and non-postal, including payment of utility bills, Ministry of Labour Transactions and traffic fines.

Developed by IT Department of Emirates Post, the POS system enables it to add new services, and have a real-time link with new partners. The system has seen been adopted by neighbouring countries, and Emirates Post is talking to some other regional countries to transfer the technology to their postal networks.

Saudi Postal president also signed another memorandum to establish an electronic market with a number of Saudi companies.
