“Everything is generated electronically and is available over the Web, which is a tremendous boon for the universities. The headaches of generating admissions lists and doing all administrative tasks manually are eliminated.” – Dr Sohail Naqvi, Executive Director, Higher Education Commission
The Higher Education Commission (HEC) was established by the Government of Pakistan in 2002. Since then, the HEC has undertaken a five-year reform process to turn Pakistan’s universities into world-class centers of education and research and development. Today, the HEC is investing in the development of 124 private and public institutions across Pakistan.
A key part of this reform process was the deployment of computers and high-speed networks across all these universities. However, despite the introduction of new technology, managing student information was a manual and time-consuming process. Everything related to student administration, including enrollments, fee records, and exam results, was handled by different departments at each university.
