Ajoy Kumar COO, PES Educations said, “We have a vision to become the top educational and research institution.

The goal is to use Club VA and create a new way of thinking based on outcome-based learning.” PES Chronicles (Club VA) will be the system of control that will help management, faculty, students, alumni, industry all be on the same platform to share and collaborate information in a way that has never been done before in the industry anywhere in the world, said Sudhir Achar. In 1972, PES was founded with just over 40 students in a rented gymnasium at Bangalore. Today, PES has more than 8,000 students spread across three different campuses. Club VA is a secure informationcentric platform architected to accelerate operational excellence through corporate social collaboration, helping companies become a learning organization. Club VA offers integrated communication harnessing the power of controlled social networking and uses consumer software like Facebook and Twitter, but is designed for company collaboration, file sharing, and knowledge exchange and team efficiency, Achar said. In the high-octane world of modern business, the idea is simple enough by implementing practices that help employees feel confident, capable, and in control of the outcome of their work, they feel empowered to do that work effectively and without excessive oversight or micromanagement. Ideally, this ensures commitment to the company’s core mission and vision, which results in greater productivity over the long term, Achar said.
