CU Management Hosts MFI Group
The Management of Covenant University (CU) on Thursday, September 17, 2015, hosted officials from the MFI Group of Companies.
The officials were in CU to propose ways to partner with the University, in the areas of data collection and management, reduction of excessive paper work and stress associated with managing and maintaining transparency, processes and databases in an organisation.
In his presentation, the Major Accounts Manager of the team, Mr. Shanmugam Veluchamy stated that MFI was a technological solutions company dedicated to simplifying the diverse processes in the labour chain. He stated that the primary reason for their visit was to introduce one of their major products; a software, developed in partnership with SEROSOFT Limited, known as ACADEMIA ERP - a campus management system.
The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Charles Ayo, in his remarks, appreciated the team for taking the initiative to visit the University. He said, however, that Covenant University as an institution has automated to a certain level, but was still open to collaborations on how the system can be further integrated and upgraded.
The Vice-Chancellor assured them that the University management would look at what the institution currently has in place, and see how it can be enhanced by the MFI solution. He acknowledged that the poignant feature of the software is that it is a one-stop-shop for all the management needs of the University.
Earlier in his remarks, the Registrar welcomed the team to CU, stating that the University was open to partnerships that would advance its cause and aid its journey towards becoming one of the top ten universities in year 2022.
Also present at the occasion were the Dean, College of Science and Technology, Professor Nicholas Omoregbe; Dean, College of Engineering, Professor John Ndueso; Director, Academic Planning Unit, Dr. Olawande Daramola; Director, Centre for Systems and Information Services, Engr. Yinka Adeboye; Dr. Funminiyi Olajide and a member of the Directorate of Media and Corporate Affairs.
