Omantel, the leading provider of integrated telecommunication services in the Sultanate of Oman, has entered into an agreement with NU (National University of Science and Technology) to implement an integrated digital solution that brings parents, professors and students to a single connected platform, enabling digitalisation of the whole spectrum, from admission management to awarding of degrees.
In a major foray into campus automation, Omantel has created a solution that lays the foundation for digitalizing core operational performance of academic institutions, eliminating manual processes and paper-based systems. All core services will be hosted in Omantel’s state-of-the art Tier-3 data center to maintain higher uptime. The agreement was signed by Sheikh Talal Al Mamari, CEO of Omantel and Dr. Ali Al Bimani, Vice Chancellor of NUST.
This project will be the start of Omantel’s dedicated solutions to schools, universities and other educational institutions to deploy more connected networks. Our solution will empower NU to manage its operations across various campuses more efficiently and utilize the resources optimally, from budget planning, marketing, hiring and recruitment to student on-boarding. It will also assist in tracking student progress and identify at-risk students, resulting in improved student success and graduation rates.Sheikh Talal Al Mamari, CEO, Omantel
