ITS automates systems for AURAK
American University of Ras Al Khaimah to roll out solutions to manage students and business functions
International Turnkey Systems Group (ITS) is helping the American University of Ras Al Khaimah (AURAK) to automate its systems, to improve processes at the education establishment.
ITS has signed a deal with AURAK to implement a Student Information System from Talsima. The implementation will manage student data and processing relating to prospective students, registered students and courses; e-learning; finance and human resources.
The project includes the roll out of Campus Management SIS, Campus VUE portal, Microsoft NAV ERP and Blackboard Learn. AURAK will also deploy a central website to act as a portal for staff and students.
"Universities must have these solutions implemented if they are to stay ahead in the educational market. With the implementation of this new solution it will allow us to raise the standard of the university and attract more students," said Professor Hassan Hamdan Al Alkim, Vice Chancellor of AURAK.
"This will save our admissions office, counsellors and advisors a lot of time. The automated system will also avoid problematic situations whereby students register for courses that require pre-requisites. . This problem won't occur now because the program won't allow this," continued Al Alkim.
"This strategic partnership between ITS and AURAK illustrates how ITS group understands the university environment. This is what makes ITS unique and confirms that it's services and products for educational institutions make us leaders in our field," Khaled Al Saeid, ITS managing director and general manager.
"The technological change at the university will provide many benefits to the institution from online registration, parental monitoring and distribution of lecture notes," he added.
