Scanning & Document Workflow changes how documents are managed at KU by replacing paper forms, records and business processes with digital forms, records and workflows.
In its simplest form, it can help you convert your physical files into digital records, giving you better access and more office space. As part of a more advanced workflow, it can help you systematically capture and process information (eliminating the need for data entry), route files for review, track approvals and store digital documents.
The technology works by pushing and pulling information to link multiple applications together. For some scanning and workflow projects, it can work with campus multifunction printers
to scan, read and store information electronically through optical character recognition (OCR).
