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.

A Logical Launching Pad

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

Saving Space and Time

Lauri Reilly, accounts payable manager at the Chancellor’s Office for California State University, distinctly recalls the moment she fell in love—with Laserfiche, that is. One of the first tasks she tackled upon her arrival to the office four years ago was preparing 1099 forms for vendors. “In the past, reconciling differences between the 1099 and total payments to a vendor took forever,” she says. “It was just amazing to me that I could sit at my desk and actually see the images in Laserfiche, and make an immediate determination whether or not a particular invoice was reportable without having to get up and search through files.”

Lightening a Heavy Load

Every department on campus is shouldering a heavy workload, but few would argue that Accounts Payable (AP) staff are especially burdened. After all, AP is one of those critical business tasks that spans all departments—every purchase and every invoice is funneled through AP. When mistakes and discrepancies occur, reconciling paperwork can require a lot of detective work. An efficient AP system can help the department—and the institution as a whole—achieve efficiencies, reduce costs, and conserve resources.
