ImageNow and WebNow:
University of Michigan-Flint has been using Perceptive Software, Inc.’s ImageNow product since 1999 as the university-supported imaging solution for student services applications that interface with the BANNER as well as other systems. This agreement allows for unlimited client and web seat license access for UM-Flint departments that provide student, faculty and academic services, most specifically those who use SIS as their primary system of record.
ImageNow document imaging, management, eForms and workflow provide the ability to reduce the cost of paper processes, enhance service and boost staff productivity. Able to stand-alone or to easily integrate with existing applications such as Banner, PeopleSoft, and other systems, ImageNow captures all types of documents — paper forms, e-mails and more into ImageNow’s repository for easy access by users. Security allows for different users to have various levels of access to individual documents and notes. Workflow can then be used to improve or reengineer the day-to-day business by automating current manual paper intensive processes. Finally, imaging eliminates the need of long-term paper archives.
WebNow provides users with much of the same functionality as the ImageNow client via the internet. When at home or traveling users can gain access to their documents with their regular security access or WebNow may be used as a view only security option for specified users. In order to maintain a high level of security, users are only able to access WebNow using a secure connection (VPN, etc.). To access WebNow: http://webnow.umflint.edu/
