Abstract

University students around the world find geographical and organizational difficulties in verifying their records and academic documents in various traditional ways; namely by mail, e-mail or in person. Such a procedure is hectic and time-consuming. Also, an important step in job recruiting is to go through résumes and applicants' certificates and check if they contain incorrect or fraudulent information. Hence, the need to standardize these services in a unified portal was made by designing and developing an electronic system to verify documents for students and student graduates. The proposed e-verification portal of this study enhances the smart university with saving time and effort as it receives all verification transactions from external parties inside and outside a country. It also helps keep track of the achievement in an accurate manner and prevents the falsification of documents. This research article demonstrates the stages of the system design, development, the accomplished outcomes and the final form of implementation strategy.

Literature Review

An important step in job recruiting is to go through résumés and job applications and check if they contain incorrect or fraudulent information (Chess et al., 2006). In fact, hiring the wrong person can be an expensive torment and may be extremely disruptive (Smith, 2012). Providentially, verification of the genuineness of a certificate or mark list issued is possible over using a proposed certificate verification system (Mahadevan, 2016). Thus, most major companies use background checks as part of the standard practice for screening potential employees. Such measure “should be used within every organization that has serious consequences associated with security breaches,” and more penetratingly for employees in highly sensitive or trusted positions.
