Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 24, 2008

According to a recent report from the National Association for College Admission Counseling, students now send nearly 60 percent of college applications electronically. Despite the explosive growth in online applications, most high schools continue to send transcripts, recommendation letters, and other supporting documents on paper.

This slow, cumbersome, paper-based process is about to change with eduDOCS™, a new service from Docufide. Through collaborative efforts with Naviance, eduDOCS has been tightly integrated with WorkspaceK12®, allowing any high school in the Naviance Network to submit all supporting documents for students' college applications to nearly 800 colleges and universities -including every Common Application member institution. For the first time, schools can send electronic documents to most, if not all, of the colleges their students apply to, saving thousands of dollars in paper, printing, and postage.

Some colleges have tried to implement their own e-documents services, other providers have focused solely on transcripts, and still others have enabled electronic document exchanges for just a few institutions. eduDOCS, however, is the first service to support all documents for a critical mass of colleges and high schools. And, since eduDOCS is so easy to use, more high schools and colleges are joining each day!

"Naviance has a long tradition of delivering innovative solutions that solve real-world problems for counselors," says Stephen M. Smith, CEO of Naviance. "We are proud of our partnership with Docufide and for the ability of eduDOCS to 'change the game' for students, counselors, and colleges." John Reese, CEO of Docufide adds, "In our role as education's trusted intermediary, we have unmatched operational expertise in providing secure, easy-to-use electronic document delivery solutions to schools and colleges. We're excited about eduDOCS and delighted to be delivering our services, in close partnership with Naviance, to so many leading high schools across the U.S. and around the world."
