Educational institutions today have more administrative work and putting a squeeze on resources due to increasing student number, applications and compliance requirements. Pressure due to tight operating budgets, increased government regulation, increased demand for financial aid, and shrinking government funds, and at the same time, an increasing number of students are applying for admission and financial aid.
“The students and their parents expect a rapid feedback on applications, convenient submittal processes and an accurate recording of information.”
Admissions, Financial aid, Transcripts, Test Scores/Assessment and Billing departments have a tremendous amount of information coursing through their offices, and often have very strict time frames in which all these documents must be processed. The time and labour intensive process of handling paper-based operations results in limited accountability and process bottleneck. Without an efficient, automated solution in place, the task of processing this information can lead to excessive costs and lengthy response times.
You can effectively and efficiently meet this increased demand with document capture and document process automation. By automating manually intensive processes, educational institutions can be more productive with fewer resources. The ability to bring information online enables these organizations to serve their students and faculty faster with more accurate, up-to-date information.
