Not content with showing off its partnerships with top vendors such as Dell and Nokia, Emirates Computers is lauding its new IT solution which provides web-based student registration for a Dubai College. Emirates Computers has signed an agreement with e-TQM College to market the solution that Emirates built originally for use within e-TQM. The joint development draws on Emirates’ technology experience and e-TQM’s training nous. “As a leading provider of cost-effective IT solutions and professional services in the region, Emirates Computers has gained a reputation for creating automated and secure solutions that meet diverse customer needs,” says Haytham Kamel, vice president and general manager of Emirates Computers. “While developing the software, we had kept in mind the specific requirements of e-TQM College, to ensure that the college’s students derive its full benefits. With this agreement, educational institutions across the region will have the opportunity to deploy a highly-developed academic application that caters to changing student requirements,” he adds. Accessible via the e-TQM College’s official website, the newly-developed application allows prospective students to browse through programme and course catalogues, apply online by filling the web-base admission application, track the status of their applications and issue payment for registration fees through the secure payment gateway provided. “We put out the tender for the web programme, which Emirates won. They gave us great value and a great solution, so it was a natural step for us to take this service to the market,” says Sameer Khoory, IT manager at e-TQM College. “Emirates Computers contributed the technology and e-TQM the knowledge, so now we have a partnership, with Emirates Computers providing marketing and retailing the product and e-TQM helping with training.” Kamel says the initiative is not intended primarily to make profit but rather has the aim of encouraging people to take business processes online. He sees educational benefits and the widening of online activity as helping to fulfill the vision of Dubai to push itself as a modern diversified economy.
