The E-MIS is an integrated management information system that will be used by ESCOM to undertake the management of information in core and supporting organizational activities. It will provide ESCOM with a modern and computer based state of the art tool to manage the Divisional activities once implementation of E-MIS is completed. The MIS will integrate all the business processes into a single point of reference and management and ensure that the organization’s business processes and information systems are well-aligned to industry best practices. The E-MIS will integrate reports and data across Divisions, Regions and Districts. All ESCOM offices will have remote access to the centralised system to process their centralised transactions.
The above challenges are time consuming and increase ESCOMs operational inefficiencies. The EMIS will therefore replace the business systems, implement new systems in areas where there are no computer systems in place, integrate all the business processes into a single convergence environment for reference and management, and ensure that the organization’s business processes and information systems are well-aligned to industry best practice.
