Bengaluru : CollPoll, a Mobile-first Digital Campus Platform, is rapidly helping Business schools in India provide a seamless and state-of-the-art learning and smart campus experience to their students. CollPoll has been adopted by over 18 B-schools such as Xavier Institute of Management and Entrepreneurship (XIME), ISBR Business School, International School of Business and Media (ISB&M), Fortune Institute Of International Business (FIIB), Chitkara Business School, Jindal Global Business School (JGBS), among others with more than 10,000 students to provide enhanced student engagement and experience, a blended learning environment and a smooth onboarding experience for freshers. The startup is planning to partner with 50 more institutions with over 25,000 users in the next 6 months.
With institutions spread across Bengaluru, Pune, Chennai, Delhi NCR, Jaipur, Orissa, and in other regions, CollPoll has automated more than 27,000 admissions, 105,000+ fee transactions, 300,000+ workflow requests, 150,000 placement applications, and six million feedbacks in these campuses. The Campus Help Center (CHC) module which CollPoll offers has made campuses smart by going paperless, cashless and contactless by automating more than 10,000 business workflows such as transportation, hostel services, IT help desk, lost and found, gate passes, etc. Furthermore, CollPoll aids seamless enrollment and fee management from admission to graduation by automating fee collection, scholarship, dues and penalty management. CollPoll has aided the digital transformation of Business schools also by providing a collaborative online-learning environment that is powered by CollPoll’s Learning Management System. The platform helps teachers in lesson planning, scheduling classes, delivering lectures online, sharing resources in addition to collecting assignments, quizzes and feedback from students. The startup’s Examination Management System enables institutions to plan, schedule and conduct proctored online examinations as well as publish examination reports for students thereby keeping up with several academic compliances. Moreover, the Academic Management System of CollPoll has helped institutions with multidisciplinary curriculum management, choice-based credit system, multiple learning pathways and staying compliant with the recommendations of New Education Policy (NEP). By providing these modules through a single comprehensive platform, CollPoll has helped students at B-schools save time instead of juggling multiple technologies; network better and extend learning beyond the classroom thereby increasing their efficiency and directly impacting overall performance.
According to a Bloomberg report, Gen Z makes up 32% of the global population. India’s Gen Z population currently stands at 472 million and on average, an Indian Gen Z spends eight hours per day online. Considering the enrollment in higher education institutions and the usage of devices, educational institutions have to transition from traditional transaction-management and record-keeping enterprise resource planners (ERPs) to open, collaborative and AI-based technologies. To keep up with the generation’s expectations, educational institutions are concentrating their efforts on implementing emerging technologies to improve student experience and provide a seamless service. Academic processes, admissions, career guidance, hostel services etc. are among the many operations being automated to decrease risks, errors, and turnaround times thereby creating a uniform experience. This will help the industry to keep up with students’ need for access to resources, and how they choose to communicate with their educators and peers.
CollPoll was founded by Hemant Sahal to let stakeholders in educational institutions collaborate effectively. Since 2018, its focus has expanded to end-to-end automation of institutions far beyond the traditional ERPs. The company offers ERP for Administration, Learning Management System with Video Conferencing integration, AI-proctored Examinations, No-code Business Process Automation Engine for contactless & paperless campus, and Campus Social Network for digital engagement.

“In this year of disruption, we’ve seen just how much technology can impact the student experience. As teaching and learning become more digital, Business schools have started prioritizing innovation and technology. We believe that a data-informed academic mission must play an essential role in helping every student reach their potential. Every week, we see our institutions leveraging the CollPoll Platform to engage, enrich, and empower their students and teachers with data, analytics, and insights. We aim to impact 100K+ students in business schools across the country by empowering their campuses by being their long-term technology partner.”

“The prime reason why we, at FIIB, decided to adopt CollPoll was how it is ahead of its time. It’s difficult to imagine a future of higher education without the deep integration of cutting-edge technologies like CollPoll, which is doing 360° campus automation. We can’t deny the fact that Digital Transformation is here to stay and the quicker we embrace it, the more benefits it will reap for us in the long term, and we are glad that we have found a great fit in CollPoll for the same.”
