Overall, the college student registration process is often burdened with paperwork, causing delays and frustration for students and administrators alike. Additionally, with the ever-growing reliance on digital technology, educational institutions need to embrace modern solutions to optimize their operations. Sitehound’s asset management system not only helps manage physical assets but also serves as a powerful document management system, streamlining the document signing portion of the registration process through automated workflows, DocuSign integration, and third-party registration software integration. In this blog post, we will explore how Sitehound can help colleges take their registration forms online, effectively eliminating the paper chase.

“Changing majors, waiving prerequisites, approving course conflicts and substitutions…as the chairperson of a large College academic department I can sign dozens of papers a day, and during advising season the stakes are high for students, who are stressed about graduating, meeting requirements and finding internships.  While the pandemic disrupted the old way and brought improvements by moving everyone to electronic signatures, multiple email chains have become a nightmare for the registration office.  We needed a document management system to automate the process.  Students are less frustrated, faculty can access and approve forms remotely and we have the documentation we need. Assessment documents are organized for accreditation and assessment and course approvals automatically move through the system, saving administrative time. Students are less frustrated because the system guides their paperwork to the right person”
