This is primarily due to the fear of the inferiority syndrome creeping into their egoistic bossing mindset. Communication never makes anyone inferior. Those who have made the progress update mandatory through SMS and have delivered the commands and feedback through SMS have reaped the real benefits of this mode of communication.
