"University Records Center Ltd. standardizes and puts into data form record formats that differ by university. This is a revolutionary mechanism with advantages for students, companies and universities."
Taichiro Tsuji, Director, University Records Center Ltd.
University Records Center Ltd. (URC) was set up in 2010 to enable employers to assess the academic results of Japanese universities.
“There is an issue with employers having a low expectations and a lack of trust in university results,” says Director Taichiro Tsuji. "Employers tend to focus on extracurricular activities rather than university grade points. As a result, Japanese students tend to neglect the academic side of the university experience. We want to create an atmosphere in which students can dedicate themselves to their studies.”
University Records Center Ltd. needed a scalable environment capable of hosting its University Records Data Service. The new system would need to be built and in place by the start of the graduate job hunting season, and would need to be flexible enough to cope with changing data volumes.
