INTI Information Technology Centre Sdn Bhd (IITC) is confident of promoting its Total Campus Management Solutions (TCMS) system among colleges in Malaysia and the Asean region.
IITC executive director Chuah Seng Heng said the TCMS system would enable colleges to provide better student management administrative services and computerise other manual administrative tasks.
For the time being, our immediate focus is at the 600-over private local colleges. We are also into providing TCMS to the Education Ministry's teachers' training colleges nationwide, Chuah said.
He said this at the signing of a strategic alliance with IBM Malaysia to deliver the TCMS system to local educational institutions in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.
The TCMS system would reside on IBM's proven DB2 information management software. More than 60 million users and 425,000 companies rely on IBM's data management solutions globally.
The TCMS package offered encompasses solutions such as student lifecycle, management, library information, hotel management, executive information and security administration systems.
IBM Malaysia's software group country manager Hong Kok Cheong said the alliance would enable IBM to leverage its depth in software offerings and solutions to meet the business needs of its customers across various industries to the specific niches of the education sector.
IBM is the only information management software vendor to provide its customers with integrated solutions, database management, content management, enterprise information integration and business intelligence.
IITC is a wholly owned subsidiary of Inti Universal Holdings Bhd, a leading provider of tertiary education as well as professional and corporate training.
Inti chief executive officer Tan Yew Sing said the TCMS had enabled the company's colleges to increase their administrative efficiency and provide better student services through the optimisation of its resources.
For example, the manual preparation of study schedules is very complicated especially if the colleges' student enrolments are more than a few thousands.
The usage of TCMS will cut down on preparation time and reduce human errors, Tan said.
