Sanjiv Krishen led Iris Global Services has bagged an order for deploying 6,000 customized tablets—called nSlate—with Hyderabad-headquartered Narayana Group of schools spread across 13 states in India. The Narayana Group today stands as Asia’s largest education Institution with over 300,000 students in 650 centers spreading across length and breadth of the country.

Himanshu Chawla, Chief Operating Officer, Iris Global Services, said, “In the AMJ quarter, we’ve to supply 1,500 nSlates to Narayana Group of schools. However, we need to deploy another 4,500 nSlates to the super education institute in coming months. The combined order is worth Rs 8 Crore”.

The Iris integrated ‘nSlate’ e-Education platform runs over android based Samsung tablets—imparting AR (artificial reality), VR (virtual reality) and MR (mix reality) simulation contents on Science and Maths to students.

Iris Global Services has struck technology alliances with an array of companies which come together for devising required solutions for customers. This comes under the Iris Innovation Alliance (IIA) initiative of the company. Chennai-headquartered Novatium, a managed computing solutions provider, and
Ahmadabad-based Designmate, a digital contents provider, have contributed substantially in the development of the highly customized nSlates.

Over a period of time, the Narayana Group has massively deployed ICT tools and applications the ways it runs its administration, and the ways it carries out teaching-learning processes. In 2017-18 alone, it has set up 128 digital classrooms, and plans to add another 86 smart classes by 2019. The education group has planned to set up 131 full-fledged computer labs in 2018-19. The Narayana Group is one of those education power houses which has reposed faith in the efficacy of ICT.

“Iris Global has been our approved technical partner over a couple of years and has been delivering solutions to our requirements on time” said MV Ranga Rao, HOD Procurement & Services, Narayana Group. “Our nLearn vertical already has got digital classrooms, and now with nSlates and 3D classrooms coming in place, we shall replace manual text books totally for each student by 2020. Our strong curriculum coupled with these digital tools, help students find subjects easier, grasp quicker and beget better results” he added.

Puneet Kothapa – Founder, Narayana Group, Hyderabad, said, “We really appreciate the efforts put in by Iris Global Services for developing nSlates for our students. In coming times, this initiative shall pave ways to achieving India’s e-Education mission”.
