Many public sector entities use spreadsheets, word processing software, and email applications to manage Freedom of Information (FOI) compliance. This approach often results in significant effort, fragmented workflows, and an increased risk of missing required response dates. 

Vayle FOI provides a single platform that enables public sector institutions to record, track, and respond to FOI inquiries with ease. Vayle recently partnered with the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO) to help Ontario local governments streamline and automate their FOI compliance programs.
