HCL Technologies, a leading global IT services provider, today announced that it has successfully implemented the first phase of Oracle's PeopleSoft solutions suite for Sharda University, India’s leading educational institution. The end-to-end ERP implementation, one of the first for a private university in India, will help Sharda University automate all its back-end and front-end process to deliver a better user experience.
Under the terms of agreement, HCL is deploying PeopleSoft solution suite including modules like Campus Solutions, Finance and Supply Chain Management (FSCM), Human Capital Management (HCM) and Enterprise Portal. This will enable Sharda University to seamlessly manage the entire academic life-cycle of students and related administrative processes. The benefits include superior student/applicant experience like multiple enquiry channels across the globe, key real-time information dashboard for applicants, students and alumni through self-service portal; optimized faculty work allocation; and ability to handle domestic and international applications on a single platform.
The solution will therefore help Sharda University significantly improve operational efficiencies across its national and international offices and ensure compliance with regulatory norms.

The PeopleSoft University Management System (ERP) is a part of this vision and catapults us to the league of select renowned international universities that run on an advanced solution like this.” said Mr. P K Gupta, Chairman, Sharda Group. “In HCL, we found a partner who could support the strategic initiative of deploying the ERP solution suite across all our schools. We look forward to leveraging HCL’s domain expertise to achieve continued operational efficiencies.” added Mr. Mudit Consul, EVP, Sharda Group.
