Takoradi Polytechnic Develops Software for Industrial Liaison Unit

The Takoradi Polytechnic Industrial Liaison Office has adopted a software platform to help the department strengthen its database and monitor its relationship and with stakeholders.

The software (T’poly Industrial Liaison Portal) developed by TPCONNECT – an in-house research team, has also been tasked to undertake projects aimed at using information technology to aid in meeting the objectives of the polytechnic.

Mr Kow Panyin Nketsia-Richard, a public relations officer at the Polytechnic, told Ghana News Agency that steps are being taken to make the polytechnic business processes more effective and efficient.
He said the team has been undertaking feasibility studies and gathering inputs from various stakeholders and departmental units to have a very robust database for the school.

Mr Timothy Simpson, Project Manager, said the system could be accessed online and via the Takoradi Polytechnic main website adding: “Students can now be able to obtain and print their attachment letters online.”

The new system according to him has the ability to generate several reports. It could sort out students by name, location, company, programme and department as well as any other report when needed.

Mr Simpson said the online portal would be maintained by the ICT Services Department, adding that the system could be customised for any institution upon request.

He was grateful for the support of Management and team members especially, Heads of Department, Computer Science and ICT Services who are also members of the team.

“We have plans of having an intranet platform (internal network) where students, lecturers, administrative staff and unit heads can have access to the Polytechnic Online Services based on their access rights and level of responsibility,” he said.
