Bangalore, March 28, 2012: The automated Content Management and Delivery system at Singapore’s Parliament, is being fuelled by technology from NIIT Technologies in India. The recording system enables the recording and archiving of parliament proceedings and Singapore has the distinction of being the first Parliament in Asia to implement such a system, bringing sophisticated publishing capabilities in-house as well as touch-of-a-button features like fast batch pagination with manual control to produce high quality content under tight timelines.
Says Gunalan Kamalanathan, Project Manager of the Singapore Parliament reporting system: "The users of this system are the staff from the Official Reports or the Hansard ( official record) department of Singapore Parliament. The staff used to spend long hours, sometimes stretching late into the night, to transcribe and record every word spoken in the parliament chamber. With the new system, the transcription and reporting process is speedier and more accurate, altogether less painful.”
Adds Arvind Mehrotra, President, Asia- Pacific, NIIT Technologies: “It is an honour to be chosen by Singapore Parliament to implement a solution that enhances their efficiency. NIIT Technologies has successfully brought this solution tailored specially for them and has taken a step ahead in its journey to bring value to its customer. This implementation strengthens our position as one stop IT solution provider”.
The Singapore Parliament is modelled after the Westminster system of parliamentary democracy where Members of Parliament are voted in at regular General Elections. The functions of Parliament include making laws, controlling the state's finances and taking up a critical/inquisitorial role to check on the actions of the governing party and the Ministries. http://www.parliament.gov.sg
