The key components of eOffice are as follows.:
1. File Management System (eFile):
It is a workflow-based system that extends the features of existing manual handling of files in addition to a more efficient electronic system. The system comprises different sub-modules that are interlinked to manage the official workflow of the entire life cycle of a document/DAK from the moment it is received by the organization till the time it is disposed of with the proper set of actions. It involves all stages of working in a file, including the scanning, electronic diarization, file creation, noting creation, digital signing on noting and drafts, dispatch, faster processing and movement of files and receipts, closing of files and receipts, and finally the archival of records.
2. Knowledge Management System (KMS): The KMS component of eOffice brought the concept of a central repository of documents in an organization. It provides for users to create and manage electronic documents in the workflow, along with versions (tracking history) that can be easily viewed, searched, shared, and published. It logically organizes the content and standardizes content creation and presentation across an organization.3. Work from Anywhere (WAW) Portal: A gateway for virtual office from anywhere is a one stop-portal for office functions and connects the officials to securely access their office from anywhere. 4. Smart Performance Appraisal Report Recording Online Window (SPARROW): It is a web-based application for processing of APAR. Employees can fill in their APAR, which is further reported and reviewed by the official hierarchy. It helps in reducing delays in submission and processing of APARs and ensures transparency by tracking the movement of APAR. The system also provides a dashboard facility that enables the service controlling authority to monitor the status such as officers posted, pendency at various levels, and APARs processed and closed.
