Beltsville, MD (PRWEB) September 24, 2009
Over 5,000 education professionals have traveled to Baltimore this week for seminars and meetings with vendors to find new solutions to age-old problems. Business as usual is no longer the way institutions of higher learning are dealing with the financial impact that has affected some of the oldest, largest, and most prestigious universities in the country.
There is a clear mission for most of the attendees this year - find ways to reduce costs, improve efficiency and do it with less people. Colleges and universities are reacting to the recession the same way private businesses and corporate America is reacting; finding new solutions and finding them fast.
DataBank, a national document conversion services company expects large crowds at their booth where they will be showcasing successful paperless solutions for Admissions, Financial Aid and a host of other paper-based systems. Attendees will want to learn how Boston College, Northeastern University, St. John's University, Carnegie Mellon and many other institutions have finally rid themselves of paper and now process all their documents electronically through a wide range of software solutions, including FolderWave, OnBase by Hyland Software, ImageNow by Perceptive Software, Singularity from Hershey Systems, and many more.
"We have set the standard for document conversion services with our national coverage and experienced management team. All of our secure facilities are SAS 70 Type II and PCI DSS certified and provide a level of security and protection of confidential data and personal information unmatched in our industry. We receive annual certification by an independent third-party audit firm. We have invested millions of dollars in infrastructure and process controls that assure protection of client information and chain of custody for all documents," said Dick Aschman, CEO.
Gerry Santelli, VP of Business Development, Education noted; "Our digital mailroom operations allow us to receive the applicant's paperwork at one of our full-service scanning centers, open the mail, sort, scan, index and move the electronic documents into the school's line-of-business software, student information system, or workflow and document management systems. This allows faster decisions because the business process has been significantly improved. Our document conversion services come out of existing operating expenses, where colleges and universities are currently responding to peak activity periods by hiring temporary employees or using students to process sensitive and confidential information. DataBank's outsourced solutions are exactly what schools need to replace this outmoded way of processing the tremendous amount of paperwork associated with Admissions and Financial Aid."
