Going paperless: A university's digital transformation journey

SRM University is one of the top ranked private universities in India. Founded in 1985, it's always been a game-changer in education, with its interdisciplinary curriculum, diverse student base, and excellent placement records. With over 45,000 students, 3,000 faculty members, and dozens of departments, there's a substantial amount of data to be managed. Their biggest challenge was managing all of this data on paper. 

They were looking for a customizable solution and were open to trying something new. That's when Zoho Creator came into the picture, and since then, there's been no looking back. Within a year, they implemented a revolutionary academic system automating most of their operations, and as of today, they have six critical apps running their educational processes—all built using Zoho Creator.
