A small learning centre was set up in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. It was a centre with limited classrooms and teachers. The teachers worked hard to find the best teaching method for the students. Owing to the progressive growing students, the dimension of the centre was doubled so that more facilities and manpower could be included. Besides, the management team was also constituted from this year. The students' registration process was computerized to serve our customers better. The fee collection and the students' profile were recorded in the management system so that our executives could make each process more efficient.
