Sijil Teknologi Sdn. Bhd. (Sijil) has successfully inked a Memorandum of Understand (MOU) with the Digital Internet Association of Malaysia (iaM) to use its Certificate Management System in iaMs’ national as well as international training programs and hackathons. Sijil was represented by its Chief Operating Officer, Mazlan Abu Bakar while iaM was represented by its Chairman, Ts. K Nantha.
Established in early 2022, Sijil was invested in developing a one stop solution in effectively managing the certification system in Malaysia. To achieve this, the solution had to take into account numerous stakeholders of the system such as government agencies, institutions, training providers, students as well as prospective employers. This Certificate Management System helps alleviate common problems faced by both students and training providers such as lost certificates, fake certificates, lost training records as well as participants data mismanagement. On top of that, this eco-friendly, integrated solution eliminates most tedious and repetitive tasks by being able to automatically display the participants details with unique QR and serial numbers on each certificate. The QR can be used to scan and verify its legitimacy and henceforth prevent duplicate certificates. In addition, the system incorporates end-to-end solution by being able to generate thousands of individual certificates from an uploaded template, store participants and training providers data, and finally is also able to retrieve the aforementioned certificates with a click of a button from virtually anywhere in the world. This system would also be able to handle multiple templates for different types of attendees for the same event such as volunteers, advisors, judges, sponsors, technicians and not forgetting the participants themselves.
Aptly, the MOU was exchanged during the Malaysia Techlympics event at Axiata Arena Bukit Jalil, where iaM set up their iaM Digital Xperience booth showcasing numerous Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality solutions for the modern classroom. Participants to this booth were presented with a digital certificate of participation generated autonomously by Sijil upon successful visit to 3 stations within the booth itself. This certificate was said to be a significant reason for the record number of visitors to the booth as the students visiting the booth would be awarded 17 PAJSK points for participating in a national level event and that aforementioned certificate would be proof of attending such an event.
A serial user of the system, Fatin Amirah, the program coordinator for iaM stands by the efficiency of the system as she has now fully transitioned to automated certificate generation for thousands of her hackathon participants. She says that she is now able to automate and complete days of dull and time-consuming task of creating individual certificates within a few minutes of uploading the participants list, saving her precious time to be utilised productively elsewhere, such as preparing better training materials.
Sijil has also been providing certificates to Incepsion Group of companies since it’s early days to automate certificates for their company wide usage. Ir. Selvem Raman, owner of the Incepsion Group of companies, including the offices in Malaysia and Singapore, has adopted the solution for its’ internal as well as external training and certification purposes. He has confirmed that Sijil has helped save hours of manpower in preparation and distribution of certificates, all while doing it in a sustainable manner using this intervention.
