Document management for schools, colleges and universities can provide much needed support for the education sector; home to an abundance of personal records and documents regarding staff and students.

These documents not only include basic details of students and staff but they may also include delicate matters such as medical information. If these school records are not organised, stored and destroyed properly, documents risk becoming lost, damaged or outdated.

In the case that educational records become outdated, universities, colleges and schools may be at risk of breaking the law under the new GDPR which came into force as of 25th of May 2018.

The rules around GDPR can be quite confusing and have lead to many schools being found guilty of data security incidents but with the right support and document management, your educational institute can avoid this and have a better understanding of school data retention.

Why is document management for the education sector important?

As student numbers enrolling at universities rise, so does the amount of paperwork and the need for additional storage.

Prevent the loss of documents

Our university document storage manages and organises data to reduce the risks of misplacement and theft. School document management helps to free up more space for teachers, students and professors to work. Our storage services are also suitable for universities to store excess marketing materials which we can collect and deliver for free, as and when they are required.

Data Protection

Changes to the data protection laws also affect how long universities can store sensitive data and ensuring it is destroyed when it is no longer needed is a huge responsibility. Our university document shredding ensures that documents are sufficiently destroyed when they are no longer needed and removes the need to worry about documents that need to be destroyed and if they have been destroyed properly.

Retrieve documents quickly

Scanning and digitalising documents can be highly beneficial for a university as it helps prevent the loss of important documents and going paperless can help boost a university’s reputation. Our university document scanning service means that data can be located and retrieved quickly and easily when it is required and therefore removes the process of having to frantically search for various pieces of paperwork.
