Chennai: Chennai-based ITES firm TRS Forms and Services, provider of solutions and products in the OMR (optical mark reader) scanner technology, has introduced e-numbering, a next generation scanner to automate the whole post examination process in Universities.

The company has got into a strategic partnership with Longwind Systems, China to start manufacturing the product. The new scanner named as FireEye is said to be first of its kind having the capability to print automatic dummy number, capture the student information and process it using OMR/ICR technology. After the valuation, the marks of the students also can be captured and processed automatically using the scanner.

N Subramanian, MD, TRS Forms said, "Though 95 percent of all the universities across the country followed the dummy numbering system, penetration of automation in the field is still relatively low. But, with more universities realizing the urgent need for fair and precise automated marking systems, the company expects a good demand for the new scanners."

In the first year, it has planned to focus on the Indian universities in the south and expand its services to other regions in the next year. Considering the demand for the product across the country, the company will be looking at setting up its own indigenous production facility in Chennai in technical tie up with Chinese firm. The initial investment on the project will be 2 crore.

Since its inception in 1999, TRS has been focusing more on providing solutions than selling products. In the last two years, it has strengthened its research and development (R&D) wing and invested time and effort towards developing the new e-numbering scanner.
