Enter the cloud
A key problem at hand is how to improve the storage, management and processing of the information in documents. This becomes a hugely complex undertaking when you’re dealing with the enrolment data and academic records of thousands of students. More often than not, these students are distributed across multiple campuses, or accessing tuition services through remote learning facilities.
The answer can be found in the cloud. A web-based information system such as Therefore Online (TO) offers a comprehensive, subscription-based information management solution that replaces older manual and paper-based processes with automated digital workflows. More specifically, it allows you to:
Integrate: Many institutions are saddled with a mixture of old and new technology from a range of vendors. Therefore Online cloud integrates seamlessly with many of your existing hardware and software systems, enabling a consistent, automated workflow throughout the document lifecycle.
Capture and sort: When used in conjunction with Canon’s powerful IRISPowerscan OCR software, key textual and identifying data can be pulled from almost any document – allowing easy indexing, searching and editing. It works effortlessly with multiple file formats and languages, making management of international and multilingual student files much easier.
Secure: Protecting the confidentiality of student information is a top concern of any educational institution. Therefore Online cloud keeps all information securely stored and backed up with customisable access permissions.
Access remotely: For administrators and students who are always on the go, remote and mobile access allow you to access documents and participate in workflows directly from a mobile device.
With all these features integrated into a third-party cloud, the organisation can benefit from a scalable, all-inclusive document solution that doesn’t require big upfront spending on IT infrastructure – allowing more budget for the delivery of high quality educational services.
