Key Challenges
  • Document search and retrieval
  • Insufficient physical storage space
  • Information security
  • SLA adherence and regulatory compliance
  • No centralised repository
  • High turn-around-time

Growth Bottlenecks

With the focus of serving its citizens better, MCGM aimed at optimising its processes and enabling smooth collaboration within its departments. Managing the growing volume of information and storing physical documents were posing a huge challenge on the corporation’s process efficiency.
MCGM realised that the manual way of processing transactions was time consuming, cost intensive and consumed more manpower. Managing umpteen number of building and property related proposals and supporting documents including notice, commencement certificate, occupation certificate, plan approval, NOC, property card, etc was a daunting task. The documents were being referred to physical files for verification which were maintained at different locations, hence, validation was a time consuming process.
