College & University Registrar Document Scanning and Management

Scanning and indexing paper and microfilm the conventional way is extremely expensive. Many college and university registrars are not aware that traditional scanning methods can create incorrect or no index data, resulting in missing or difficult-to-find records.

BMI offers unique solutions, like Digital ReeL, that digitally capture every permanent student record, transcript, HR file or payroll record. On premise and hosted solutions are available that improve the image quality of your entire archive and offer immediate full text search of any record.

Document Management Services for University Registrars Include:

California State University, Los Angeles (Cal State LA)

It used to take days to respond to a transcript request that was on our microfilm. We were pleasantly surprised with Digital ReeL’s search and retrieval speed. We now offer same-day turnaround for transcript requests that come into the office. Searches are now completed in minutes, not days.

When Fresno State received a grant to improve the efficiency of the Department, it was decided to digitally convert thousands of academic records that were archived on physical microfilm. The Department had the initial intention of scanning the microfilm records to PDF and leveraging an existing document management system. However, when presented with the Digital ReeL alternative, the competitive price, non-proprietary image format (PDF, TIFF) and easy-to-use viewer made it the best option for the Department’s records.
