What are we solving?

The need of the hour today, in an age where information is increasingly becoming democratized, is to enable effortlessness and transparency between a government and its citizens. With technology, we have the potential to manifest that vision, allowing citizens to easily access the services and information they are entitled to. Automation of bureaucratic operations allows scaling to happen faster and more efficiently, thereby reaching more number of people in less time.

Overview of our Software Solution

Our Integrated University Management System (IUMS) provides real-time information processing and knowledge management. It is an integrated solution that facilitates the processing and maintenance of large volumes of information – including student, faculty, transport, staff details, and payroll and student fees among various departments in an institution.

IUMS practically covers the entire area of operations and automation of the university. The system not only helps in daily operations of the university, but also provides the foundation to foster research and development on e-learning methodologies. IUMS is powered with user-friendly reports and user-interface thereby ensuring maximum user efficiency. The main focus is on the integration of different departments for better university administration.

Business Case

The client was a government-sponsored university located hundreds of miles away from the city, in remote area. The campus was spread across an area measuring hundreds of acres and included several different colleges and faculties. Due to the location and extent of the campus, information flow between departments and faculties was very slow and inefficient. Therefore, the client wanted a centralized database accessible by staff, teachers, students and management. The main objectives of the application were:

  • Improve interaction among different departments

  • Easy access to information

  • Increase transparency & efficiency

  • Convenient and cost-effective administration

  • Increase operational efficiency

  • Minimize cost

  • Better delivery of services

  • Increase credibility and goodwill

Challenges Faced

  • The remote location of university posed challenge in elicitation process

  • Different departments used different standards and processes

  • Huge database of employees and their personal/financial details needed to be created

  • Application data security concerns to be addressed as confidential financial data was involved

  • The IT infrastructure and internet connection was not dependable and maintenance was slow

  • Some facilities did not have any IT resource or proper internet connection

  • The end users were not trained in IT and were reluctant to adapt to a new system

  • Tight deadlines were to be followed for delivery of application

Our Approach

We setup an elicitation team on site to co-ordinate with offsite development team for requirement gathering. An agile methodology was followed for development so that feedbacks could be analysed and changes were incorporated quickly. All stakeholders were engaged and a common minimum format was collated. The existing infrastructure of the university was analysed and all options evaluated.

Solution

We developed the application using framework and content management system for rapid development and easy update. The user interface was kept minimal and simple. The application was integrated with the university’s website for seamless navigation. User roles and access permissions were defined and application was hosted on client’s server with encryption and firewall for enhanced data security. Various utilities were created for creating database and security measures were incorporated. Some application modules were to be hosted on intranet and others online based on availability of resource and infrastructure. Trainings and demonstrations for staff was organized and elaborative manuals were created for handholding.

Our software solution covers the entire life-cycle of students starting from admission through to degree completion. In addition, university administration are able to manage the back-office processes of the institution such as Accounting, Personnel Management, Payroll Management and Inventory in an integrated real time manner.

Our software solution provides all Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) of a university management at any point in time and thus allows the management to focus on quality education more, back office process less. Our solution offers efficiency to core operations like Admission, Result Processing, Registration, Fee Management etc. It saves time, requires less resource and provide coherence among the departments.

The application encompasses business intelligence enabled web based ERP product for effectively managing complete university functions including real time information processing and knowledge management. The application practically covers the entire area of operations and automation of the various university functions via modular categories such as Student Lifecycle Management, Administration Process, Financial Management, HRMS and Operations. It is an integrated system that facilitates processing of large volumes of information in its subsystems, which includes but not limited to; Engineering, Inventory, Asset,, Facility, Transport, Library, Establishment, Payroll and Student fees among various departments in the institutions. The application also acts as the foundation and collaborative platform to foster Research and Education Delivery including eLearning methodologies.

Our software solution is deployed in Central Universities, State Universities, Technical Universities, Veterinary Universities, Agricultural Universities, Private /Deemed Universities, National Research establishments and their Affiliated Colleges & Institutions.
