In many schools, documents and records still end up in storage boxes, filing cabinets or cupboards. In the long term this not only takes up space, but looking for specific information also takes up valuable time. Sometimes documents may even get lost. Efficient, secure administration? Far from it!

DMS (experts in managed print solutions) have created a simple solution…

Efficient search and store school document management 

Our ‘Scan to SIMS’ solution, named ‘Secure and Find’, (for users of Capita SIMS software*) makes the uploading of paper-based documents regarding all pupils and staff members into Capita SIMS records fast and simple. It captures all important papers and securely stores them electronically. Ideal for scanning: consent forms, holiday requests, medial notes, SEN statements / reviews and attendance records…

Many schools have already realised the benefits of using ‘DMS Secure and Find’; allowing multiple types of information to be stored electronically within the pupil record. Creating those files manually takes time: scanning… uploading… renaming… saving. Then of course, repeating the whole process again for every member of the class or year.
