More than 1.5 million Hujjaj have benefited from the electronic services provided by the General Presidency of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice during this year’s Hajj season.
The e-services were provided during the first period of Hajj through digital awareness tools in 15 different languages to help hujjaj perform their Hajj with ease.
One of the most useful e-services were screens and interactive devices that worked around the clock, where the user could experience audio, video and printed guidance materials in 15 languages.
Broadcasting via Wi-Fi technology made content available on screens, covering an area of 100 cubic meters indoors, and 360 cubic meters outdoors, for the largest number of beneficiaries.
Users could download the content directly to their mobile phones without the need to go through the internet, as screens contained 210 guidance materials, 1,207 audio materials, 32 books, and screens that featured 5,760 guidance segments 24 hours a day.
The new services were provided at major centres including King Abdul Aziz International Airport in Jeddah, Haramain High-Speed Railway Station, Prince Mohammed bin Abdul Aziz International Airport in Madinah, and Al-Qassim Railway Station amongst others.
