Our BlogThe latest news and information about digital credentials
Parchment’s focus since 2003 is to help academic credentials make the transition from paper to electronic. The benefits in time saved, ease of use, and student satisfaction make electronic delivery a goal that all institutions are embracing.
But, even though Parchment is committed to helping institutions “go digital,” we know that there’s still a case for paper. To be a comprehensive credential solution for our members, we can’t ignore that paper records continue to be a part of your day!
This month’s newsletter is dedicated to helping to solve the paper problem.
Paper You Don’t Need
In some cases you may have too much paper. Storerooms full of legacy paper records, request forms that get submitted to provide records, or even the paper involved in collecting and processing payments. Parchment can help you remove paper and improve access and security where you need it.
Paper You Do Need
In other cases, providing your official records in paper format is valuable. We see this with printed diplomas or printed records that are mailed to destinations that may not accept electronic documents (yet). Parchment is helping to take these projects on, to provide state of the art diploma printing and mailing, and a full suite of record printing and mailing, including tracking numbers that are sent to students (reducing follow up questions!).
Learn more about how you solve the paper problem in this special edition of our quarterly newsletter. Be sure to reach out to your Account Executive, or Contact Us here to get more information on how Parchment’s services can help!
