Driving Successful Higher Education Outcomes in TWO WORDS

Successful Outcomes. In two words, this is the goal we’ve set for the solutions we provide to the education market. And for over 21 years, the Softdocs product suite has done exactly that - help colleges, universities and K-12 districts drive successful outcomes for their students and employees.

Let’s talk about how, together, we can drive successful outcomes campuswide at your institution, from human resources to student services.

You’ve heard our two words, and we’re ready to hear yours. Which challenges are keeping you up at night? What is your institution’s most pressing priority? Where do you see key opportunities for growth? Share your two words and let’s take a look at how Softdocs can help your institution remain competitive and reach its goals. Or, if you’d like to hear a bit more from us first, share which department you’re a part of.



Every minute with a student needs to count.

As the only enterprise content management (ECM) provider focused solely on the education space, we understand the challenges facing your institution, and how crucial it is to make every minute count. Not just for your students, but for faculty, staff, and you as well. That’s why we designed Etrieve™ by Softdocs to be a mobile-first ECM platform that is completely browser-based. And that’s why we’re looking to share just two words with you. Because, by providing convenient and secure access to needed information, we’re helping you make the most of the time you have with each and every student.

Through document management, electronic forms and workflow, Etrieve supports your efforts to serve the modern student, simplifying complex processes and driving successful outcomes.

Let’s talk about how Softdocs, and Etrieve, helps you continue to move the needle on creating positive outcomes, even with costs on the rise and enrollment in decline across higher education.

“Students don’t want to deal with paper or run around campus. They want to be up at 3 AM filling out their forms. So the e-forms solution helps us adapt to what the students need while still being usable for us.”

Lynn Reynolds | Registrar | Monmouth University
