Ed De nizenThe prime objective is to integrate the entire life cycle of a student in the campus, from pre-admission to placement. The institute can increase their brand equity by building in Information transparency among all their stake holders.
It used to be a Herculean task for Universities to monitor the activities of the various colleges under its umbrella. They could also see the trouble the administration faced in consolidating all the data related to admission, fees and student information from different institutes. It was not the challenge of creating data; the bigger challenge was availability of data for easy reference when required. Manual intervention was needed to organize the data in the required formats. With the increasing data getting piled on each year it was imperative for the group to have a strong data base to maintain records of students & staff. This apart there were bigger issues of submitting various reports on a timely basis to the statutory bodies like DTE affiliated universities. The process of pre-admission, managing all the applications and short listing the students who have applied and completing the selection of suitable candidates for admission, was even more complex. This is when they visualized a system that could centralize and automate all the processes from pre-admission to placements including a staff biometric attendance solution, single library control system for multiple institutions, and enhanced student feedback amongst others in a virtually transparent, efficient, and foolproof manner.
It was at this point that IDenizen, a technology solutions provider for the education vertical, pitched in with the SmartCampus™ solution. Founded in 2004, this Bangalore based company transformed the institute with its integrated application which covers all the important functionalities of the institution from the time the student applies for admission to the time of his placement. The system automates the complete administrative and academic processes of the institution, and enables easy access to critical information. Not only has it brought together all the stakeholders, which includes students, staff, faculty, management, and parents but has also ensured continuous and real-time communication between each of them.
“Despite spending a lot of money on the infrastructure connecting all the institutions we faced challenges in accessing relevant data. IDenizen helped us achieve the desired campus productivity by seamlessly integrating all the institutions through its product SmartCampus™. This has brought a lot of academic and administrative excellence within the group colleges” explains Anand Patel, Member-Academic Council of Ganpat University. Now he is not only accessible to his stakeholders but also gets a sneak peek into the processes and procedures of his group at the click of a button.
Today IDenizen has more than 100 colleges as clients and more than 1.5 lakh students using its solution. By heralding this new digital trend, IDenizen is scripting a silent revolution in the education space. The company has enabled automation in vital areas like Library Management, Student and Staff Attendance, Payroll & Accounting, Academics, Examinations and Hostel Management among others thus improving the efficiency and productivity of administrative processes.
With the promising growth in the subscription base IDenizen has established offices across India for increasing sales and operations depth, and forging strategic partnerships to successfully cater to the larger market opportunity. This also helped addressing the service demands of each territory more effectively & efficiently.
“Our present focus is to reach out to the length and breadth of the vertical. The prime objective is to integrate the entire life cycle of a student in the campus, from pre-admission to placement. The institute can increase their brand equity by building in Information transparency among all their stake holders. This tool has helped many institutions showcase themselves during the visits of committees & Accreditation bodies”, explains Mohan Sharma, General Manager, Sales.
Girish Baliga, Founder & CEO of IDenizen, has enough reasons to feel good. Five years back, when he had a chance to interact with the stakeholders of an educational institution, he was quick to recognize the gap. Seeing all of them working in silos and the overall time wasted in the mundane administrative processes made him realize that though the Indian education was growing steadily and rapidly, the sector was not exploring the true potential by leveraging technology that would help them scale greater heights. This made him set his eyes on this vast unexplored market. “Though the education sector has grown twelve fold since the days of independence, the sector lacks proper investments in infrastructure and technology, which is a constraint in coping with the growing market demand and ............
