Texas District Goes Paperless With Doc Management Software

The Edgewood Independent School District (EISD), in San Antonio, TX, has recently gone public with its adoption of document management software in an attempt to reduce paper use and wasted time, energy and effort.

EISD, with 12,000 students across 20 campuses, deployed software from Laserfiche in 2011 and has automated more than 200 processes with the tool.

Laserfiche allows districts to:

  • Eliminate copying, storing and transporting of paper documents;
  • Automate review and approval processes for a variety of activities; and
  • "Safeguard confidential information with comprehensive security features," according to a news release.

"Before we got Laserfiche, no one knew why our processes worked the way they did—they did things the way they were told to do them ten years ago," said Adam Galvan, Jr., technology director at EISD, in a prepared statement. "The paperless processes we've built in Laserfiche are logical, efficient and cost-effective, which is why the entire school district has embraced them."
