Fresh Look - Higher Ed - Financial Aid
Does providing a simple, seamless Financial Aid experience for students, parents and staff ever seem more like a pipedream? It’s time for a Fresh Look in Financial Aid.
With learning virtual and workforces mobile, much of higher education views the pursuit of operational transformation as the next step in creating a secure, convenient virtual experience for students and employees. These institutions are reexamining the campuswide benefits of deployed technologies, the need for additional content or process digitization, and the seamlessness of current operations overall.
For those lacking complete, digital student and employee records, there’s a real need to take a fresh look at Enterprise Content Management (ECM) and how well electronic forms, automated workflows and document management are supporting their key systems of record, and by extension departments across campus. And for those, we’ve aggregated the following webinars, videos and resources to make it easier than ever to take a fresh look at ECM and a fresh look at Softdocs.
