Join us for a FREE webinar on Thursday, June 27 to find out how the University of Oklahoma is leveraging 24/7 business automation tools to deliver superior student services faster and cheaper — and the totally unexpected quality of education delivery and morale benefits they experienced as a result.

Transitioning from paper to digital has revolutionized processes at the University of Oklahoma. It's had a profound impact on the quality of student services, including annually reducing paper costs by 30% and cutting admissions time from 8-10 weeks to 2 weeks.

At this webinar you'll hear the frank, revealing and amusing tale of this transformation – NOT from technologists – but from an educator and an administrator.

Dr. Rhonda Kyncl currently serves as the Assistant Dean for Academic Services in the College of Arts & Sciences at the University of Oklahoma. After a flood scare that sent shivers down her back, she spearheaded the university’s transition to digital. Crystal Ary is the project manager of Admissions. Neither had experience in document management, but both were up for the challenge —and their story is one you mustn't miss.

With engaging and insightful candour, Dr. Kyncl and Ms. Ary will map their journey from paper to integrated mobile data systems and the profound impact it has had on their college of some 7,000 students covering 50 majors and 28 departments.

This webinar is sponsored by Laserfiche and hosted by The Chronicle of Higher Education. All content presented during the event is provided by Dr. Kyncl and Ms. Ary.
