The Impact of Digital Document Management on a School's Transformation

In an era where efficiency and accessibility are paramount, a 100-year-old school was finding it difficult to cope with an overwhelming amount of paperwork and record keeping. For example, finding important documents such as a specific student record was taking long and was dependent on the person knowing the location of the document. The school also struggled with sluggish approvals of documents, leaving stacks of files stuck on desks for days. Parents and students often complained about long wait times to receive certificates/records.

This prompted the school to embark on a transformative journey by embracing Centris for its digital evolution.

By systematically addressing challenges, the school optimised its operational processes and laid the foundation for a more secure and collaborative educational environment. This short case study illustrates how a strategic shift toward digital solutions can yield tangible benefits for educational institutions navigating the complexities of the modern era.
