Education documents: Digital Processes offer Significant Value
Digitally capturing student application forms enables faster processing and a transparent workflow. Students can easily access information such as timetables, course notes, support materials etc, providing them with a better student service.
With many schools and universities now using tablets, all staff can collaborate using electronic document workflows – information can be easily shared, enabling faster approval time.
Schools, colleges and universities all have to comply with certain regulatory bodies such as Ofsted, HSE, Right to Know Requests under the Freedom of Information Act, Higher Education Act and more.
Education establishments are obliged to manage and submit to the Office of Fair Access (OFFA) a range of documents relating to bursaries and tuition fees. DocTech’s solutions provide effective tools that accurately meet the provisions of the Higher Education Act.
