Overview
Overview

  • We implemented ImageNow in July 2009 and had a very different implementation than the PS project.

Missouri university of science and technology
Missouri University of Science and Technology

Applications
Applications

  • Roughly 10,000 applications a year

  • On undergraduate side need transcripts and test scores

  • On graduate side need transcripts, test scores, statement of purpose, three letters of recommendation and a resume

  • LOTS OF PAPER!


Overview1
Overview

  • We had a very different process to implement ImageNow than we did with PeopleSoft

  • Very happy that we are on imaging but it was a hard process to get there and it could have been easier

  • Want to make sure you don’t make the same mistakes we did


Topic slides
Topic Slides

  • Will be going over how we made the decision

    • Justification

    • Cost savings

    • Implementation strategy

  • Actual Implementation

    • Crossover

    • Upgrades



Imaging is a time saver
Imaging is a time saver

  • There is nothing to file

  • No more – drop everything and go to the file room to look for a document

  • Regional people don’t have to wait for us to fax them something

  • More eyes on the data makes the data more correct


Implementation
Implementation

  • Same division that implemented PeopleSoft implemented ImageNow

  • Took a very different approach

  • Had two meetings, the team wrote the scripts and then we were live

  • Didn’t have a test environment


Implementation1
Implementation

  • Had worked with 30 departments across the four campuses and hospital before they worked with us. Did one other admissions office in those 30

  • Assumed we were similar in our processes but we are really four unique campuses when it comes to admissions and student records.


Things would have done differently
Things would have done differently

  • Taken a slower approach

    • Found out better way to train/test

    • Been more involved in the setup process

  • Pushed for a test environment

    • When we upgraded this caused problems because users couldn’t test

    • When upgrade happened things broke


Things to consider
Things to consider

  • How long are you going to keep materials?

    • Three months from time of scanning seems to be very common

    • Heard of some schools – the day after scanning

  • If you are going to keep a while – where and how to file these so you can find them if needed

    • Date scanned order seems to be very common



Remember
Remember…

  • If someone can lose a piece of paper, they can find a way to link the document to the wrong record

  • Your staff won’t be sitting around doing nothing, imaging just is a different activity for them

  • Need to find alternatives when power outage or network is down
