Sandhills Community College Launches Etrieve Cloud Initiative To Improve Efficiency and Security
Aug 2, 2022 – Sandhills Community College took a big step in modernizing their document storage and management strategy by launching their cloud data migration project with Softdocs, the leading content management, and campus automation solutions provider for educational institutions. The project is expected to bring significant improvements to the way Sandhills Community College manages its student, staff, and vendor content and data.
“Sandhills looks forward to this migration to the cloud,” said Rod Brower, CIO at Sandhills Community College. “We are heavily invested in Softdocs for our imaging, document management, and eForms. We know this will put Sandhills Community College in a more stable position and improve our overall data integrity and safety.”
The on-prem storage that Sandhills has used till now puts a heavy burden on their IT teams to ensure data protection as well providing regular updates, backups, and audits. Upon completion, the migration to the Etrieve Cloud will relieve the Sandhills Community College’s IT teams of these and other ongoing maintenance responsibilities. The migration is also expected to deliver significant cost savings over time.
“Educational institutions are not immune to the recent spate of ransomware attacks,” said Andrea Link, Softdocs’ VP of Product and Engineering. “On-prem storage of data exposes institutions to a host of security risks, not to mention legal scrutiny regarding the privacy of student data. We are excited to partner with Sandhills Community College on this migration to ensure they have greater control of their data and feel more secure.”
Sandhills Community College, a client of Softdocs since 2003, is leveraging the full Etrieve platform, driving campus automation via Etrieve Forms and Flow with secure content management in Etrieve Content.
Softdocs’s cloud-hosted solutions are built on the Microsoft Azure cloud computing platform and Softdocs offers its cloud customers 99.5% uptime.
