“digital transformation”

School of Research Science

the challenge

as a leading educational institution, SRS is processing in excess of 3,000 student applications, registrations and supporting documents per school term


to support the schools digital transformation activities, it required to digitize all currently active student files as well as historic student data to comply with local KHDA rules and legislation


in addition, the school was evaluating systems where student files could be moved along a student's curriculum and "grow' with the student throughout the years attending the school, as well as a technology that would make it easy for the school's administration staff to add, change and enhance documents (electronic or paper based) throughout time


the School of Research Science was founded in 1998 to provide a high quality education to the children of local Emirati families


since that time, the school has seen a dramatic expansion linked directly to its growth in popularity, also amongst non-Emirati families whose children now comprise approximately one-third of the school’s intake


a powerful vision coupled with strong ambition and clear sense of direction has enabled the school to grow and become a very successful all-through, 3 to 18 school with a student roll of approximately 3,250


by employing high quality teachers and school leaders and giving them the tools and opportunities they need to grow professionally, SRS aspire to provide a world class standard of education for all students

the solution

SRS chose oryx outsourcing to digitize all existing paper-based student files, index them including current class, student number and family number and export the same to the schools content management system


for this purpose oryx services implemented a Microsoft SharePoint Online school portal application to host all uploaded data and documents in a secure and access controlled manner


the results

today SRS manages all student registration in an electronic format


one of the key benefits achieved was the easy search and retrieval of online available student information

utilizing the family number as one of the index fields now allows the school to easily pull reports when children are attending the school from the same family, a feature not available previously
