“We are preserving our data in a way that we can manipulate it by being able to index it, so it’s searchable. But most important of all is that we are servicing our customers the way they are accustomed to doing things – online.”
Office Manager, Helena High School
“Parchment gives us some breathing room and makes everything more manageable. Instead of students filling out paperwork, we just send them online. That cuts out phone calls and office visits, which frees up time and money in my department.”
Assistant Director of Admissions, Walla Walla Community College
