In this era of the Industrial Revolution 4.0, the management of zakat funds also needs to be supported by a good database system. The existence of the database can make zakat management more effective and efficient, for example preventing the occurrence of distribution errors, double zakat distribution to mustahik and other unwanted cases. The database can also be used by stakeholders in developing research on zakat. In addition, coordination and synergy in the management of zakat are also important to do.

In order to build a database and synergy in the management of zakat funds, BAZNAS collaborates on data utilization with the Ministry of Home Affairs. The utilization of these data aims to synchronize mustahik and muzaki data by Identity Card Number (NIK)-based, so that the process of collecting and distributing zakat will be more effective and efficient.

On Thursday, March 11, 2019 BAZNAS and the Ministry of Home Affairs held a coordination meeting on cooperation in the utilization of NIK-based data which took place at the Office of Department of Population and Civil Registration (Disdukcapil), Pasar Minggu, South Jakarta. The meeting was attended by representatives of the Directorate of Facilitation of Utilization of Population Data and Documents, Puskas BAZNAS, BAZNAS muzaki service, BAZNAS IT team, and BAZNAS legal division.
