Walla Walla Cuts Paper from Student Records

Students and their advisors at Walla Walla College can now access

there is no longer a need to duplicate and transport physical files
between different departments. The records department simply scans
the paper files and sends the electronic version of the documents
to a Web repository. The files are automatically created using a
specific naming convention.

access to information, and legacy systems that no longer meet
a school's needs. In each case, you'll learn how the challenge
was met and what the solution and payoffs were after moving to
technology solutions from Oracle.
