Somnetics Leverages ICAI Examination Procedure

Kolkata, 24th March, 2014: Som Imaging Informatics Pvt. Ltd bagged the prestigious deal to serve the Institute of Cost Accountants of India Examination Board with its combined services in Managed Printing and Copying Services, document scanning and digitization and form processing. The project was executed at Taratala Branch and took 3 weeks to accomplish which was appreciably within the stipulated time. This project mainly holds significance because it is for the first time the organization took up a combined project encompassing all three of its main imaging informatics services.

Somnetics took the responsibility to cater to the entire examination process encompassing designing of OMR examination sheets, printing of more than 5 lacs answer sheets, printing of hall tickets, digitization, and collection and processing of data after the examination, exporting data, creating the final output and printing examination results. 20 employees were involved in the project, out of which three looked after the IT and four catered to the document digitization service. Since printing was the most challenging part of the project, mainly because of the huge volume, a significant number of MPS expertises were involved in this task.

Customized form processing software facilitating data printing was used along with the indigenous Intelisplit software that catered to OCM and OMR reading and data extraction on the principles of cropping and splitting. Data were stored and retrieved from iDOC Document Management System. For bulk printing, Canon IR 4570, Color A4 Multifunction, with a speed of 25 copies per minute was used.

Shantanu Som, Technical Director, Somnetics said, “This is the first time we have taken up such a large scale combined project and I am glad it was a huge success! I also thank the teams whose joint effort resulted in accomplishment of the project within the deadline with an impressive output”. Sushanta Das, Project Manager, IT revealed, “It was a challenge because the development of the software had to be completed within a short notice, followed by mass installation of the software. However, we are glad that the project was a smooth ride despite a short deadline.”

ICAI has renewed the deal with Somnetics for executing the procedure for the following examination too. “This partnership is the result of the combined efficiency from the entire team who worked on the project”, said Sushmita Singh, HR Manager. The organization arranged for a cocktail and dinner party for all the team members who were felicitated with the Kudos certification (an internal certification felicitating employees for their excellent output in a particular project).
