The project will be implemented in multiple phases and would cover the end-to-end life cycle management of the operations.

IITR has decided to implement a combination of the best-in-breed ERP solution that suits all our institute’s needs for example we can track a student from admission to being an alumni and track his movement in the future after leaving the institute too. It would help integrate hostel functions and academics of every student. It will also track a faculty member from the application process to post retirement phase. This will ensure a seamless integration of all entities across IITR and its campuses.”

The solution offers the scope of mapping of assets, their life cycles, data analytics of budgeting and resourceful financial forecasting techniques, augmentation of organizational scalability for future growth plans, data uniformity and integrity across various IITR units.
