UTM : Digital Lifestyle

UTM has set a goal to accelerate its achievements to the levels envisaged in UTM's Third University Global Plan (PGU III) and UTM enVision 2025. Thus, accelerated governance and high-performance delivery are a prerequisite for strategic positioning and branding. The mega-lifestyle ecosystem is focused on meeting the goals. To enhance competitiveness, the creation of a mega lifestyle is facilitated through digital applications and Internet of Thing (IoT) campus life initiatives towards the Internet of Campus.

CICT is committed to creating a better quality of life and campus environment for all residents using ICT applications and making the campus cashless. The campus life experience also needs to be transformed. In addition, to make UTM competitive internationally, productivity and sustainability are enhanced by the adoption of ICT and Internet of Thing (IoT) intelligence services.

Digital applications powered to support UTM Digital Lifestyle are Digital Services, Digital Learning and Digital Work Style. Existing digital infrastructure has been strengthened by tier-3 Data Centers. All three mentioned digital applications are facilitated by the UTMSMART mobile application as one of the initiatives to translate the digital lifestyle, UTM Digital Lifestyle.

UTMSMART is powered by the Digital ID CQRC (Colored QR Code) for all students / staff and services. UTMSmart's payment platform has an innovative Multiple Payment platform of two "SMS Gateway" and "Payment Gateway" (UTM registered Intellectual Property) channels for mobile transactions for digital campuses.

Recordings of lecture attendance by CQRC scans using the UMTSMART application have been successfully implemented with the launch of the Chancellor's Monthly Meetings in February 2018. UTMSMART's functionality has expanded to 14 modules in the second version to date has reached 22 modules covering the use of lecturers, students and all UTM staff.

Among the most important modules in the latest version of UTMSMART are applications, support and approval of UTM staff leave. All of the activities in this holiday break can be used in UTMSMART. This facility has reduced the delay in approval of leave by graduates and supporters. A review of the applicants' leave history can also be reviewed through the application.

In conclusion, the UTMSMART application has transformed some of the previously complex work processes into more complex and simplified work processes.
