Clients (partial listing of various client needs)

  • The University of Texas at Austin - Classroom 2000 of the future. Instructional system using new high technology products and the Nations first MIS Graduate program for Management Information Systems advanced degree.

  • The University of North Texas - was ECS' first EC-Image document imaging client.  Starting initially as a 5 user system in Claims account, this original document imaging node has expanded to Purchase and is used daily by about 35 persons.  Human Resources and Development are also using the software on Campus.  A major expansion (2001) is now underway to expand a second node for the Registrar's Office and Financial Aid.  This node will serve some 65 additional persons on campus.  Of course, full compatibility is standardized on UNT's campus so all can gain access for their document imaging needs.

  • Collin County Community College District - Multi-campus document imaging systems design, and integration. Scan, store and retrieve registrar records, transcripts, and related paper laden documentation to the new "paperless" way of the future. This facility is now in its 4th year of expansion using EC-Image document imaging software and related systems.  This system started almost 5 years ago as a single user application to store Transcripts.

  • Southern Methodist University - Study for implementation of automating document forms. Intelligent Character Recognition systems study to automate hand-printed registration forms. Design and implementation of campus-wide document imaging system, beginning with 40 on-line users for Enrollment Services. Law School student records conversion to digital imaging are now all on-line with  implementation of document imaging for law school use.  Development office document imaging facilities for 40+ users - a conversion from older MacIntosh based system.  Registrar's Office implementation - 30+ users, conversion of approx. 750,000 microfilm documents to imaging and now on line.  Currently there are over 100 campus users accessing records from two nodes.  Other departments will come on line soon.
