Metfone-developed SIS digital platform assisting schools during Covid-19 pandemic

The Hun Sen Serey Pheap High School in Kandal province’s Takhmao city, which had never previously relied on digital technology, began adopting virtual learning when the Covid-19 pandemic forced physical classroom teaching to pause last year.

The school adopted the Metfone-developed School Information System (SIS) to promote online learning to ensure students were not deprived of education during the health crisis.

The SIS platform is equipped with a range of useful features, with documents able to be stored and retrieved quickly, and its digital archiving system enables school information to be stored securely and safely, unlike in physical form where documents can get damaged.

The school's principal, Mam Sotheanythe, said SIS has helped smoothen administration at the school, while student and teacher performance has also improved.

“Teachers can now record students' grades into the system and keep track of their class timetables and monitor lessons. The system is so user-friendly," he said.

School administrator Chhin Kimheng said operations are much faster after the introduction of SIS.

“A job that typically took 30 to 60 minutes, such as recording year-end school grades, can now be done in just five minutes,” he said.

Metfone plans to make the system available for all schools across the Kingdom.

“We will support the education system with SIS by giving out free internet SIM cards so students can learn without worrying about family finances,” the company said.

Metfone has been a pioneer in supporting the Cambodian government in implementing its national digital transformation programme.

The company has so far worked closely with ministries and agencies to implement transformation projects in fields such as education, health and transportation.

As one of the leading companies in the areas of telecommunications and digital technology, Metfone has the largest network infrastructure, serving some nine million customers nationwide.
