This e-Office System will be a great platform towards paperless working of day to day activities and to bring transparency & efficiency in office functioning. This system will also promote green initiative.
E-Office is a cloud enabled software developed by Nation Informatics centre (NIC) that is being deployed/hosted from RailTel Tier III certified data centres at Secundrabad and Gurgaon. It is based on Central Secretariat Manual of e-Office Procedure (CSMeOP). The product is built as single reusable system by bringing together independent functions and systems under a single framework to enhance transparency, increase accountability and transform the government work culture and ethics.
This system is initiated in a single framework to enhance transparency, increase accountability and transform the govt work with culture and ethics. Currently, four modules viz. File Management System (e-File), Knowledge Management System (KMS), Collaboration & Management Services (CAMS) and Personnel Information Management System (PIMS) will be the part of the e-office System.
The benefit of this system will be visible once the system is fully put to use and Manual File System is stopped. This will continue to be a tool to foster improved reliability, efficiency and productivity and will be benefit to Railway employees. E-Office will enhance data security & integrity and promote innovation by releasing staff energy and time from unproductive process and procedures.
