Singapore Parliament is first ever in Asia to implement Content Management and Delivery system.

The Singapore Parliament now has an automated Content Management and Delivery system, implemented by NIIT Technologies.

The recording system enables the recording and archiving of parliament proceedings, said the global IT solutions organisation in a statement today.

According to the IT solutions provider, Singapore Parliament is first ever in Asia to implement Content Management and Delivery system.  

The staff from the Official Reports or Hansard department of Singapore Parliament will be using this new system.

"The recording system brings sophisticated publishing capabilities in-house for Singapore Parliament," the IT company said in its statement. "It provides useful features at a touch of a button like, fast batch pagination with manual control and produce high quality content under tight timelines."

"With the new system, the transcription and reporting process is speedier and more accurate, altogether less painful," said Gunalan Kamalanathan, project manager of the Singapore Parliament reporting system. Earlier, the Parliament staff used to spend long hours, sometimes stretching late into the night, to transcribe and record every word spoken in the parliament chamber.
