Staying safe “out there”

University and college police departments work hard to maintain security and safety; Laserfiche ECM technology provides the right tool to make the job easier.

University and college police departments may operate in a smaller arena than most city law enforcement agencies, but their need for accurate and up-to-date intelligence is no different, nor are the challenges they face when trying to manage this through a paper-based system. ECM can help alleviate the problem.

Business continuity planning for higher education

An effective business continuity plan must be based on both a sound knowledge of your institution’s culture and structure, as well as on well-defined policies and procedures that make the plan a part of your daily operations, rather than something that is referred to only in case of emergency.

Barrier-Free and Efficient

Departments across campus must share information, a need not always easily, quickly, or securely achieved; Laserfiche Workflow technology breaks down the barriers inhibiting information-sharing.

If the various departments on campus were entirely self-contained, never having to share information with, or seek it out from, other departments, then a paper-based, hardcopy system might not be so unwieldy. But as anyone in education will tell you, no department is an island. Instead, there’s a massive amount of back and forth; a reality that a paper-based system is increasingly ill-suited for, says Linda Ding, education program strategist for Laserfiche.

A Logical Launching Pad

In the push to achieve greater efficiencies, institutions of higher learning are looking at ways to standardize business practices and bring greater uniformity to departments across the campus. Increasingly, they’re relying on ECM tools to achieve this objective, an effort that typically starts with Accounts Payable (AP), says Linda Ding, education program strategist for Laserfiche.

Taking Enterprise Content Management (ECM) campus-wide is essential to achieving greater efficiencies; success is best assured if this effort starts with AP.

Keeping Information Mobile and Secure

The use of technology like iPads and iPhones has freed workers from their desks, increasing the need to develop security-focused strategies.

Mobile technology has certainly made life more convenient, allowing employees to work and stay connected from almost anywhere. At the same time, because these devices are so portable and are often used by accessing public wireless Internet, they’ve made life a little less secure.

Achieving Gold Standard Document Retention and Security

College and university records administrators are increasingly under the gun to meet regulatory and compliance mandates pertaining to document retention and security. This would be no big deal if they just had to track and control a couple of documents (and if these documents were all pretty much the same) but of course, this is hardly the case.
