Overview Governments and organisations world over are adopting new ways to become more responsive and accountable in the way they operate.

Owing to the large volumes and nature of these correspondences that involves multi-level collaboration between various stakeholders, a majority of the resources are spent on tracking and administering them, rather than in taking appropriate actions. Complexities in processing result in increased costs, higher turnaround time and noncompliance, which may bear several financial and nonfinancial implications
