Digitizing documents

Scanning documents and eliminating paper increases workflow efficiency and reduces storage needs

Perceptive Software, Inc.

At the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, the admissions, registrar, financial aid, academic advising and other offices once operated amid a steady flow of paperwork, creating inefficiencies for students and staff. However, university leaders recognized a way to better meet students' changing needs while keeping pace with the technological evolution within higher education.

The university devised a strategy to eliminate time-consuming paper processes, improve accessibility to documents among the departments and create a virtually paperless environment. Its catalyst for change was ImageNow document imaging, management and workflow. By seamlessly integrating ImageNow with the existing student information system, authorized university staff quickly and easily capture, search, view and interact with documents such as institutional applications, transcripts and course changes at the moment they need them, from almost anywhere.

For the admissions office, responding to academic inquiries now takes just minutes instead of days. The financial aid office accelerates award approvals and student notification. The automated system fulfills federal regulatory compliance for security and archival, making burdensome paper storage obsolete.

Ultimately, university leaders envision a campuswide document-management system that will support student service activities from admission through the alumni years.

E-purchasing solution

PDF-formatted purchase orders help district modernize and control costs


Corpus Christi Independent School District (CCISD), Texas, must keep a close eye on costs while working to modernize the district's core processes and IT systems. Several years ago, administrators discovered a need for an electronic purchase-order solution. At the time, the district found dozens of vendors providing e-solutions in the education sector, but few that had relevant experience. CCISD set out to find the right solution.

The traditional purchase-order process at CCISD required printing a five-sheet, multi-part form that was manually separated and distributed via mail and interoffice post. While the district already had digitized the requisition process, the purchasing process lacked the software to interface with the main system and efficiently produce an e-purchase order. The district's director of purchasing and distribution, Ricardo Rodriguez, initially estimated that the district faced $60,000 in customized programming costs to integrate the two systems properly.

After assessing the current process, IKON recommended deploying a variable-content document production and distribution solution to integrate the systems. This resulted in PDF-formatted purchase orders that could be distributed to relevant parties via lower-cost mechanisms such as fax and e-mail.
