“During my research, I came upon the astounding revelation that there is a company for every 60 people on the planet, with around 115 million companies in total,” he said.
‘‘Management is the key to efficiently running a healthy business but companies should be spending less time stressing about management of their employees and more time bringing their concepts to light so that we can create a brighter future.
‘‘That’s every software developer’s purpose and my dream.
‘‘I hope to continue my studies at university and change the world through the field of information technology.
‘‘ When I heard I had won the award I was shocked and excited, as I never thought it would be such a success.
‘‘ This wasn’t my first project, so I treated like I would with any other project, with hard work and determination. It has definitely been an honour to receive this award.’’
‘‘My EMS monitors the checking in and checking out of employees within the company through a smart card system and an internal employee database.
‘‘The employee scans their card at entry, which creates a record of the exact time and date, which remains active until their time of departure.
‘‘It also boasts a range of other features including the management of employee profiles and the creation of employee payrolls.’’
‘‘I created it because as the world advances, its technologies, companies expand with new life-changing technologies that affect all our lives in one way or the other.
‘‘ There has also been a sharp increase in the number of businesses in the past 50 years.’’
