Digitally Transform Your Institution for the New ‘Rs of Education’

Document Management for Education

Educational institutions of all levels and sizes are tasked with the responsibility of educating our students and preparing them for the job market. The onus is on these districts, universities, vocational schools, and charters to constantly adapt from the simple days of the “Three Rs of Education” (Reading, wRiting, aRithmetic). Operational expenses of running a school are immense amidst strict budgets, while schools have effectively become information custodians, holding critical and confidential documentation for their students, and in accordance with Information Security regulations and State-mandated Retention Schedule guidelines.

The ICM Approach will enable you to cost-effectively transform your operations to a digital environment and exceed at the “New Rs of Education”:


Automate your retention schedules down to the document-level for process that works for you with a complete audit trail, reduced liability, and significant reduction in physical and digital storage space.


Mitigate the risk of record loss or degradation, whether it be data theft, human error, or natural disaster (floods, fires, microbursts, “damage” from rodents, we’ve truly seen it all!).


Secure and structure your documents to ensure compliancy with FERPA, HIPAA, and your applicable Department of Education and State Archives, and adjust accordingly as new guidelines emerge.

Record Requests:

Respond rapidly to record requests and stop wasting your valuable time and money having to sift through network drives or walk to the records room and search before having to scan or copy.
