Transforming how business is done

At the University of Oklahoma’s College of Arts & Science, information is no longer held hostage; ECM technology has freed it, making it easier to access and use, and more secure as well.

When the academic services office at the University of Oklahoma’s College of Arts & Science first deployed Laserfiche’s ECM technology, it had two initial business objectives for moving to a digital format: to protect student records against a natural disaster, and to serve its students in the most efficiently possible way.

Gaining efficiencies and value

Colleges and universities are turning to ECM to garner the necessary tools for both enhancing their business value and supporting their students.

The business value of any college or university lies in how effectively it serves its students through its ability to provide them with the support and resources needed to achieve their educational goals.

Creating a win/win

The right IT governance policies and guidelines give colleges and universities a flexible yet secure approach to information management, ensuring buy-in, compliance and transparency.
