Governments across the world are gearing towards efficiency and optimisation in all of their processes. The Dubai Government specifically has also put consumer satisfaction and happiness at the forefront of it strategic development. We present a solution that has seen an adoption and implementation to resolve an actual challenge that has existed for many decades. We bridge the wireless divide around the challenging terrain of the Dubai Customs Hatta headquarters by enabling mobile smart offices to become an integrated part of their headquarters; bridging the office operation intelligently to the consumers. We provide a proof of concept simulation study and cost benefit analysis of the solution and present architectures that could be adopted in many scenarios. We provide a novel solution to a number of challenges and conclude by studying its effect on the efficiency of the office operation simply by bridging the gap that has ever existed in such situations.
