Automate admissions, financial aid and student records management to increase student service, reduce costs and streamline operations across the campus
The industry of Education is traditionally a paper intensive, document and process driven environment. Areas such as admissions, financial aid, registration, athletic departments, human resources, and accounting, all employ paper based procedures. Higher Education systems, including public and private universities, community colleges and other institutions, can all benefit from streamlining mission-critical business processes to reduce costs, improve student service, and ensure compliance. Schools, colleges and universities are used to managing an abundance of paper, whether it is related to administrative or academic tasks, stacks of paper accumulate easily.
This abundance of paper causes many issues:
Expensive storage space that could be given over to teaching activities
Insecure storage of sensitive information
Restricted access to vital data and papers
Hours spent searching for the right document
And not to mention a fire hazard. If you multiply these issues by each of your institution’s departments: faculties, library services, student services, HR, estates, legal, SMT and finance and include all geographical locations, the amount of paper floating about very quickly adds-up drowning you, your staff and students in paper records. Sound familiar?
