Mindlogicx to focus on exam management service for varsities

It can help conduct offline exams in a secured environment

Issues pertaining to question paper leakage, tampering of certificates, examination-related malpractices and the like are agitating the minds of mandarins of many a varsity.

How to make the entire examination process fool-proof and trouble-free? Bangalore-based Mindlogicx Infratec, an R&D-based technology products company, has come out with a holistic solution to end the countless worries of the varsities.

Founded by Suresh Elangovan, this firm primarily operates in the higher education space and delivers services to universities on SaaS (software as a service) model.

Within five years of its inception in 2002, Mindlogicx had developed a technology platform for higher education called VEDAS (virtual education delivery and assessment system).

It has multiple software modules and comprises business intelligence tool and SOA (service-oriented architecture).

Mindlogicx has developed three business verticals. Besides delivering content via broadband, the company provides solutions to automate the examination management system. Further, it is also keen to help in skill management and assessment to improve the employability of students.

Mr. Elangovan said the core focus of the company was on providing integrated examination management service for universities. “From delivering question papers just half-an-hour prior to the commencement of examinations to digitally evaluate the answer scripts and providing tamer-proof certificates, the VEDAS platform-based solution takes care of all and can knock the worries off the minds of the university authorities,” said Mr. Elangovan.

He felt that the technology could help conduct offline examinations in a “highly secured environment”.

In this context, he said the system was capable of managing the examination schedule effectively for each exam centre and print entry pass with multi-level verification processes. “e-publication of the results is possible through the software and the system can also provide total certification traceability,” he added.

Mr. Elangovan said Mindlogicx would provide the software called IntelliEXAMS under the managed application service.

The onus of managing the entire process would rest on the company, which would invest in hardware, software, connectivity, back-up system et al.

“We deploy our service on BOT (build, operate and transfer) model,” he said.

Bangalore University, Viswesvaraya University, Anna University in Coimbatore and Nagaland University were among the users of Mindlogicx product, he added.

“We have signed a memorandum of understanding with the Gujarat Government with a commitment to invest Rs.450 crore,” Mr. Elangovan said.

In the paid-up capital of Rs.22.50 crore, the promoters led by Mr. Elangovan hold around 75 per cent. The balance is held by Chennai-based private equity firm Kalpathi Investments.

“We have so far invested around Rs.30 crore and have 450 people working in our facility at Whitefield in Bangalore,” he said.
