On May 12, ImageSource hosted a webinar titled “Information Management for Higher Ed: Bridge All of the Information Across your University”
The Webinar looked at how Universities are experiencing an explosion of information and how the need to control it, even leverage it, has never been greater. From registration to transcripts to financial aid and more, today’s students expect online services and electronic forms facilitating faster decisions and timely responses. Ensuing departmental document management solutions result in silos of information, and redundancy in content, technology and processes.
In the webinar, we explored how Enterprise Content Management (ECM) allows institutions to optimize specific, departmental business processes while providing a common platform for all information processes across the enterprise. We discussed how ECM provides a reliable way for all departments to securely access the same, current, accurate information. And when content is managed by a common platform, Universities share more than information. Sharing the cost for implementation and ongoing IT resources can provide big benefits to their bottom line.
Enterprise Content Management Solutions for Higher Ed are:
Although it may originally be implemented in any department, an Enterprise Content Management system is designed to be expanded to include the entire organization.
ECM systems allow for control of access to sensitive information, protecting student confidentiality and University liability.
Access records completely and immediately. Automated retention schedules allow for effective storage.
Immediate access to critical information means Higher Ed organizations can do their job better and faster. This can improve the competitive edge through improved service to applicants and enrollees.
Reduce the footprint and expense of storing and accessing paper records. And when distributed across the entire enterprise, cost savings are realized through shared IT resources, hardware and software investments.
