As part of its efforts to improve student services, UA&P formed a partnership with the Technological Institute of the Philippines (T.I.P.) last January 31.
On behalf of UA&P, University President Dr. Winston Conrad Padojinog and ICT Managing Director Jason De Villa signed the Memorandum of Agreement with T.I.P., which was represented by Senior Vice President Angelo Lahoz and Head of Business Development Mr. Jay Perez.
“We have been looking forward to signing this agreement with T.I.P.’s SVP Angelo Lahoz to signify UA&P’s continuing efforts to improve its customer services and operational efficiencies,” Dr. Padojinog said. “Digitizing its admission, enrollment, registration and database system and integrating it with the existing systems will bring UA&P closer to the digital age. We anticipate that the improved processes will help the different units in UA&P improve the way they work.
“They’ll make sure that by closely collaborating with our technology partner T.I.P. … we will be able to streamline our operations and improve customer service.”
Established in 1962, T.I.P. is a private, non-sectarian stock school that envisions itself as a leading professional technological institution in the Philippines through outcomes-based education, and a culture of innovation and continuous improvement.
“(W)e at T.I.P. decided to create an educational management system from scratch, specifically made for the intricacies and processes unique to schools,” Mr. Lahoz said. “With that, a decade-and-a-half down the road, T.I.P. now has a school system that enables the smooth enrollment and curriculum management of over 25,000 of our students…. Now, we are proudly adding the University of Asia and the Pacific to our list of partner schools.”
T.I.P. will be providing UA&P its educational management system named EmpowerED, which is managed by SEBI Technologies, Inc., a spin-off company of T.I.P.
“Through SEBI Tech, our partners have a company dedicated to working with them throughout the implementation of EmpowerED and beyond,” Mr. Lahoz said.
