Apogee can provide schools with the tools and specialist expertise to tackle poor data management and meet the joint challenges they face of escalating information volumes and legislation. The core methodologies which Apogee can introduce to help schools develop how they manage data, including document scanning and data capture, output and workflow process assessment and data analysis and review.
Document scanning and data capture
With the latest best-of-breed technology, all documents can be scanned and captured in high quality. A scanning process is perfect for schools due to their large volume of documents, including student records. Documents and data can then be electronically stored and include processing systems to make it even easier for schools to gain access to this information. Barcodes added to documents ensure they can be analysed, remediated and managed effectively, while the Optical Character Recognition (OCR) enables the school to extract specific details through word searches.
Output and workflow process assessment
Another effective way for schools to manage data management is through assessing the strengths and weaknesses within the current infrastructure and processes. This will determine where the establishment can reduce certain documents being produced and highlight areas where improvements can be made.
