Whether a local school district or state university, education institutions are faced with a number of document management challenges, from high paper costs to compliance issues. When tight budgets and document security are always of top concern, it becomes difficult for educators and administrators to complete manual paper-based tasks in a streamlined, and cost-effective manner.
So what is the education industry doing about it? According to a report by AIIM (Association for Information and Image Management), 30% of surveyed educational establishments plan to implement Software as a Service (SaaS) within the next five years. Nearly half of the respondents intend to purchase a document management solution to tackle paper processes head on and solve the daily challenges of administrative tasks.
Just like Smart Boards are the new chalk board, document management software is the innovative next step in records management. From teacher certifications to student records, special education files, accounts payable and more, document management provides school systems of all sizes with digital tools to eliminate paper storage, streamline operations, and increase efficiency.
