Optical Image Technology and DataBank Form Technology Partnership Alliance Enables Paperless Process Automation in Higher Education
State College, PA – (March 3, 2009) -Optical Image Technology (OIT), located in State College, Pennsylvania and DataBank IMX, based in Beltsville, Maryland, have formed a technology partnership to benefit higher education institutions that are transitioning from paper-based to paperless processing. Colleges and universities will benefit from a single, integrated system for outsourcing the capture of college admission and student loan applications and automating the routine processes related to those documents.
DataBank provides outsourcing services that include a variety of imaging conversion services. Imaged applications and supporting documents result in high-quality images supported by easy desktop retrieval. Nine production centers in the United States handle mailbox management, document preparation, scanning, indexing, and quality control related to collegiate admissions and loan processing.
OIT’s integrated DocFinity suite of document management and workflow software helps higher education admissions offices to process applications efficiently, shorten admission turnaround times, enhance student services, and manage costs. Bar code technology, electronic forms, and workflow automation help admissions staff to process large volumes of applications and student loans quickly so that timely offers can be made to the best student applicants before they are accepted by competing institutions.
Together, the images captured by DataBank are fed to the DocFinity system to help educational institutions make smart decisions, faster. The integrated solution enables higher education organizations that favor image outsourcing to take full advantage of the benefits offered by electronic processing.
“Our relationship with OIT is a complementary one in which DocFinity users can rapidly deploy automated paperless processes in Admissions, Financial Aid and campus-wide. The capability to accomplish this is based on a comprehensive portfolio of document management services that DataBank offers to scan documents and import the images and captured index data directly into their DocFinity system. Our partnership will significantly improve the return on investment higher education clients can realize.” Gerry Santelli, VP of Business Development, DataBank IMX
