OpenText solutions help government agency to streamline processes, improve efficiencies and meet compliance requirements

We streamlined the whole complaint review process. For example, the validation phase; where it used to take us two hours to get a case closed, now we can do it in about fifteen minutes because of the way we built the process. Staff can go in and simply click a couple of buttons and it creates a letter and saves it in the case folder. All we have to do is print it off, sign it, and mail it.
