Document Imaging at Vanderbilt University Presented by: Mary G. Hayes, Manager of Computing & Technology Vanderbilt University, Department of Accounting Ian Llado, Senior Account Manager Optical Image Technology, Inc. (Booth #209)
Introduction Too much paper!! How can I get to it? What do I look for first? The Dean asked for this 3 days ago and I still can’t find it! Customers are getting mad at us. We need something better. Where should we start? HELP!!
Topics of Discussion Planning Strategy Goals of the project What will our goals achieve? Implementation Problems encountered Problem resolution Future growth Partnering with OIT Background of OIT Other Higher Education Implementations Questions and wrap up
Planning Strategy Team developed for project Requirements for vendor solution Attended AIIM Imaging Conference Selected 4 initial vendors Requested demos & consultation Narrowed vendors down to 2 Selected OIT Presentations made to MIS and ITS Created Budget for years 1-3 Submitted to Controller for approval
Goals of the Project Replace outsourced microfilm with in-house up to date technology. Reduce time spent trying to access original documents by providing access from desktop computers. Provide users with the ability to save images, and/or fax images to departments requesting documentation. Establish new procedures to include document prep and scanning of documents for staff doing data entry. Expand to include WEB access. Expand functionality with COLD module implementation to reduce paper waste.
What will our goals achieve? Transition original document storage from outsourcing to Microfilm Vendor, to an in-house imaging solution on the cutting edge. Improve customer service by providing faster retrieval of original documents and better quality images. Time = Money: the time savings for staff has more than doubled and with the ease of this technology, the time they save is freed up for other projects. Future Growth: Not only does this solve immediate issues, the room for project growth is accomplished by adding new modules. In this way, we don’t incur additional cost until we are ready to expand.

Potential Growth Other Departments Human Resources- Expand installation Institutional Planning and Advancement Vanderbilt Medical Center
Learn from our experience! Problems Encountered Learn from our experience! Staffing for document prep Implement in conjunction with changing the work processes to compliment the use of the product. Space! Shredding costs Server growth planning Budget projections for years 3-5
Problem Resolution- Teamwork! Determine actual time it takes to prep different document types. Determine actual time it takes to index scanned document types. Request more staff to meet the need. Cross train prep and indexing staff—switch tasks. Rearranged office space and requested additional storage room. Meet with management to discuss changing work processes in AP Consultation with SAN’s solution providers. Developed budget projections
Future Growth What else can we improve? Scan more document types Expand client base. Link server to SAN for future archieving. Enable Web Access Further automate the process by adding process management and eForms. Integrate OIT with other applications like Peoplesoft. Further the use of OIT throughout the University.
