ISSER was established in 1962 as the Institute of Statistics to provide a programme of teaching and research in statistics. In 1969, it was reorganized and renamed the Institute of Statistical, Social and Economic research with an expanded mandate to conduct research in the social sciences in order to generate solutions for national development.

ISSER currently serves as the research wing under the College of Humanities, University of Ghana and engages in a number of policy relevant research whose findings are intended to help policy makers on the best policy decisions to make for national development.

THE CHALLENGE

To complete a research project, it took between 4 – 6 months. Data is collected on the field and brought back to the office for information gathered to be downloaded before further analysis is conducted and report finally generated. This hampered the efficiency rate of the ISSER, therefore a digitized or real-time gathering of data on the field, processing and analysis was critical for ISSER.

THE STRATEGY

iSoft Solutions created a real-time transmission of field data to ISSER servers, eliminating the previous time lag of having to bring field data to the office for download. With the commissioning of the new data center field operatives can operate around the clock regards of their location once the have internet connection.

iSoft ensure that the edge parameter and internal LAN were secured and all field device connected over a secured VPN.
