document management systems

How schools and education providers can improve their document management processes

Document management solutions for schools and colleges

The hectic summer term has almost drawn to a close and if you’re a headteacher or school administrator, the chances are that you’re looking forward to a well deserved rest! However, as you already know, the long summer holidays pass incredibly quickly and before you know it, September and a new academic year will have rolled around.

Many schools and colleges struggle to cope with and manage the amount of data they have to store and in view of the strict guidelines which now cover safeguarding and data use, having an efficient document management system has the potential to make huge improvements in efficiency and document security.

Our services

We have developed a range of document management services, specially designed to help schools, colleges and universities manage and secure they way they handle and store data. Back in 2016, the Department of Education published a document entitled “Keeping children safe in education Statutory Guidance for schools and colleges.” This document outlined the responsibilities schools and colleges have when it comes to accurate record keeping, stating that: “all concerns, discussions and decisions made and the reasons for those decisions should be recorded in writing.” As a result, increasing numbers of schools and colleges have addressed the issue by using software designed to handle all aspects of safeguarding, child protection and a wide range of child protection and welfare issues from one central repository.

Helping you meet safeguarding guidelines

We have over 15 years of experience in scanning and digitising records for a wide range of organisations and businesses. We understand the importance of security, reliability and confidentiality and have in place a thoroughly tested and audited system. Our digitisation for safeguarding service will quickly and securely digitise your paper records, ready for them to be incorporated into your safeguarding software.
