Softdocs Announces Q3 Milestones, Remains First Choice for ECM Among Educational Institutions
Polk State College and Other Educational Institutions Choose Softdocs for its Industry-Leading Enterprise Content Management, Electronic Forms, and Workflow and Print Customization Solutions in the Cloud
Continuing to lead the way in educational enterprise content management (ECM) sales, Softdocs, an ECM, e-forms and workflow solutions provider, today announced key achievements for Q3 2017. These milestones include higher education and K-12 client growth, a 100 percent higher education client retention rate, and prestigious award honors.
Softdocs’ new customers, including Polk State College, represent migrations from other ECM providers as well as existing customers expanding their use of Etrieve Forms, Etrieve Content and Serve, a print customization and delivery product.
Polk State College, a public state college in Winter Haven, Fla., is a Jenzabar One user that selected to deploy the Softdocs Etrieve platform in the cloud for its seamless integration between leading ERP solutions and other critical business and student information systems. As part of phase one, the institution is introducing Softdocs in its admissions and financial aid offices to improve efficiency and streamline processes.
“We selected Softdocs for their forward-facing, cloud-based approach to ECM. Previously, user access to our ECM solution was limited and our financial aid office was still relying on manual workflows,” said Naomi Boyer, vice president and CIO of strategic initiatives and innovation, Polk State College. “Now, to automate processes, increase productivity and facilitate student success, we are concurrently launching Softdocs and Jenzabar Financial Aid.”
Also in Q3, Softdocs achieved a 100 percent higher education annual client retention rate, as the Etrieve platform continues to gain momentum with colleges and universities.
“Based on the depth of our solutions and commitment to customers, we are proud to maintain a strong higher education client retention rate and are seeing an increased demand in our cloud-based solutions as well as migrations from other ECM providers,” said Andrew Daniel, vice president of corporate strategy, Softdocs.
