"Work Smarter" is about removing the routine, frustrating and mundane aspects of our job. In the process, we enjoy quality of work life, deliver higher-value services, and bring smiles to ourselves and others. As we harness technology to make us more efficient and effective, we strive to be a Future-Ready Campus with staff who are digitally-enabled, innovative and well-poised for the future economy.
With the Advisor Dashboard, the Academic Advisor can monitor students' academic progress and attendance at a glance, allowing early intervention for students at risk of failing the modules.
Remote Assist allows CC's IT Helpdesk team to continue providing IT support for students and staff during and beyond Circuit Breaker. This saves not only money for NP, but also time for staff and students.
Green, Sustainable Eco-Campus

EVA not only connects with applicants with her innovative and engaging personality, she also helps NP staff automate and shorten the time needed to review all EAE applications. EVA is not an NP staff but a chatbot! Find out how EVA is used by AA and Schools to enhance their shortlisting processes and at the same time gather the necessary information through an online chat.
Ways we've worked Smarter
Simple tweaks and modifications are sometimes all it takes to work smarter. Here's a look at the different strategies our schools and departments have employed to cut costs, increase productivity and improve work outcomes.
Besides saving on printing costs, going paperless has saved us storage space and helped us to reap the efficiency that comes with easy filing and quick retrieval.
Digitalization & Automation
Processes and systems are computerized not just for better ease and accessibility, but to get repetitive work done faster and with greater accuracy.
We've taken a hard look at what we've been doing to eliminate wastage and redundancies. As a result, we stay lean and are able to channel our resources to things that matter.
Are there processes that can be centralized, merged or standardized? We've been able to do more with less by minimizing unnecessary steps in our work flow.
By encouraging a DIY culture among our end users, we reduce reliance on manpower and increase end user satisfaction.
Data Analytics & Visualization
By leveraging the latest data tools, we can easily uncover and present insights for immediate decisions, enabling us to work faster and stay agile.
As consumers, we love the incentives that come with cashless transactions. As an organization, we love it for saving us time processing incoming and outgoing cash payments.
Reuse & Recycle
Avoid disposables and the mind-set of procuring for one-time use. Our limited resources can be reused and recycled with some ingenuity, as shown by our colleagues.
