e-invest is a web-based application built to improve collaboration between national and local authorities, strengthening the capacity of the administration to offer a one-stop-shop service for investors. For the investor, the system translates into  :
Fewer trips and less paperwork  :  the investor needs to provide identification only once to the administration and may send documentary evidence on his project electronically to the regional authorities,
A secured web access  that allows the investor to follow the processing of his/her projects online and related procedures, providing visibility on handling times.
For the administration, e-invest provides  :
Instant access  to all elements of investment projects (forms and documentary evidence) necessary for the thorough evaluation of their economic, spatial, ecologic and social impact by national and regional authorities. The system aims at replacing the paper trail and avoiding bottlenecks. By enabling concurrent processing of investment related procedures, delays are cut significantly.
The means for enhanced coordination:  a module helps coordinating state authorities’ technical investigations and organizing committee meetings.
Statistics:  data on handling times allows for monitoring and benchmarking procedures handling within and between regions. Furthermore, e-invest provides the decision maker with key and real time data on national and regional economic activity.
