How to build efficiencies and data security and compliance through forms process automation
Part Two: Creating Secure, Compliant Workflows
Amongst the myriad disruptions to school district operations last year, the ability to properly manage traditionally paper-based processes was taken away. The only solution was to automate—and most schools have discovered they are better off because of it. Replacing old paper trails with codified digital workflows complete with e-signatures not only better protects the data on those forms but better ensures the validity of the transactions themselves.
Join eSchool News’ panel of experts in the second part of our webinar series to discuss building efficiencies and data security and compliance in education. Hear how replacing those folders filled with parent-signed health and AUP forms with online solutions improves the user experience for everyone—parent, teacher, and administrator alike. Learn methods to capture signatures for important documents like IEPs and vendor contracts while staying compliant and also saving time and money.
