CLEVELAND, July 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Finding and retaining the right students. It's one of the many challenges for colleges and universities. To succeed, people across all departments must work together. But what if the technology supporting their efforts, like document management software, can't do the same? This is what happens when departments choose products for their own narrow needs. The result? A collection of systems that don't work well together, equaling costly and inefficient processes. Not surprisingly, many colleges and universities are now looking for a single solution that's flexible enough to start departmentally and grow campus-wide. Because it's built exactly this way, OnBase continues to be selected for document management in higher education.
"Colleges and universities have shifted their thinking about higher education software," said Ian Levine, director of higher education solutions for Hyland Software. "They're reevaluating the software scattered among departments, and consolidating the ones most important for their bigger goals. Document management software is a part of this shift, and that speaks volumes about its value. It's no longer a departmental solution meant only to get rid of paper. Instead, it's part of how institutions are increasing efficiency and reducing costs across the entire campus, in areas as diverse as admissions, development and the registrar's office."
