Background information
Background Information

  • Enterprise-wide imaging solution needed due to:

    • Increasing need for document imaging across campus

    • Increasing number of departmental imaging systems

    • Opportunities to reduce costs by removing redundancies and taking advantage of economies of scale

  • In June 2004 the University signed a contract with Perceptive Software Inc. for an enterprise-wide site license for the use of their imaging product called ImageNow and it’s Web-based companion, WebNow

Phased implementation
Phased Implementation

  • Completed Conversions

    • Moved existing departmental ImageNow system from the Office of Financial Aid (OFA) to Michigan Administrative Information Services (MAIS) and upgraded the hardware and software

    • Michigan Business Services began imaging the backlog of personnel files

    • Converted documents in the Highview Imaging System (Payroll, Benefits)

  • Upcoming Conversions

    • Convert documents in the current (FileNET) imaging system (financial, accounts payable, and development documents) to ImageNow

Project timeline
Project Timeline *

  • March 13, 2006 through June 2006 – Using FileNET and WebNow to View Documents

    • Users will be using both the FileNET and WebNow systems to view documents

    • Beginning March 13

      • Use WebNow to view all new documents scanned

      • Use FileNET to view documents scanned before March 13

  • March 13, 2006 through end of May 2006 – Conversion of FileNET Documents

  • Target June 2006 – FileNET is shut down and WebNow is used for viewing all documents

    * Dates are current estimations


  • How will you know when the images have been converted?

    • MAIS and Michigan Business Services will send project updates via emails to current users at appropriate intervals

    • Michigan Business Services will post project status updates on their website

    • If specific document types are completely converted before June, we will notify users

Impact on users
Impact on Users

  • Users will view documents through a web-based user interface (WebNow) available via Wolverine Access

    • The look of the user interface will change, but our previous conversion experience has shown a relatively easy transition for users

    • Some minor changes in the way documents are organized and indexed

  • System access for existing users (as of Feb 24) will be automatically updated to use the WebNow system

  • After Feb 24, new users will have to fill out a M-1 form (see your Financial Unit Liaison for more information)

Impact on users1
Impact on Users

  • You will have access to all the documents you did before the conversion (e.g. PO vouchers, journal entries, etc.)

  • You will be able to view new documents from selected Fund Areas

    • Documents available for viewing will vary by Fund Area

    • Most common type will be establishment documents

  • Your FileNET user id and password will remain the same while the FileNET system is operational

Hardware software considerations
Hardware/Software Considerations

  • Client computers must have Java 1.5x installed to use WebNow

    • No administrator rights? Have your desktop support team load it for you. Links to Java software (Windows and Mac) are available from the Michigan Business Services’ website at

    • Client computers with administrator rights will automatically download Java software the first time WebNow is accessed via Wolverine Access

Hardware software considerations1
Hardware/Software Considerations

  • WebNow requires a high speed internet connection

  • WebNow requires platform-compatible browsers that support Java 1.5x

    • Windows computers

      • Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5 or later

      • Netscape Navigator 6.2 or later (not supported by the MAIS Help Desk)

    • Mac computers
