Change is hard, particularly when it comes to transitioning from paper-based processes to paperless ones. Still, the promise of cost savings, increased control and improvement in efficiency far outweigh the momentary disruption created by the change process.
Is it worth the effort to transition from paper-based processes to paperless ones? It depends on your situation. A buildup of paper documents can take employees away from spending valuable time with members. From reconcilements to receipts, document conversion can help eliminate and organize thick paper trails. If you are storing stacks of paper containing critical data, digitizing the documents is an effective method of backing up the data. Papers created in the classroom have a short retention period; however, administrative documents pertaining to students and faculty are required to be retained, even after they leave the school system. From student performance records to administrative payroll, document conversion can help eliminate and organize thick paper trails.
This guide is designed for the manager who is intent on leading his or her institution into the future by embracing paperless work-flow, and wants to build a compelling business case for investment. We compiled the information in this guide from respected industry sources, and from our own experiences.
