We took a few minutes this week to check in with one of our customers, the Forsenic Science Education Program Accreditation Commission or FEPAC. Take a look to see how DocLanding has helped them get instant access to their documents saving them time and days of waiting.
What do you use DocLanding for?
The Forensic Science Education Program Accreditation Commission (FEPAC) uses Doclanding to store and review the accreditation applications, self studies, and documentation related to undergraduate and graduate forensic science programs seeking accreditation status.
If you are using DocLanding for business use, what is the business and what is it’s purpose?
As noted above. The accreditation process takes approximately one year to complete. The program under review, the on-site evaluation team, the commissioner team, and the administrative team all are provided different levels of access to the program documents. Doclanding is used as the primary source of all program information during the review cycle. Once complete, the entire contents of the cabinets is downloaded and permanently stored in the FEPAC databases.
How did you find DocLanding? A general online search of sites like Doclanding, Dropbox, etc.
What do you see as the biggest benefit of using DocLanding? Ease of use. Of all online document sharing sites, Doclanding seemed the most straight forward and easiest to use.
How has it helped your business or process?
Prior to using Doclanding, the files were distributed by snail mail, email attachment, and/or the program was asked to provide links to secure areas of their web site for access to items required to conduct an evaluation. The process was cumbersome and often not secure. Since implementing Doclanding, the system has become almost paperless and the documents readily available on a secure site with access control.
Has DocLanding Saved you time? Money? If so, could you elaborate a bit as to what the Return on Investment has been for you?
It has both. Although the saving of money was minimal, the time saved was astronomical. Files are available immediately instead of days later. This in itself is huge – time is money. However, I think the most important aspect of Doclanding is making the files available with strict security.
What was the obstacle that would have prevented you from subscribing to DocLanding?
There was none. In fact, after the teams started using they system, I received many comments about how nice it was to have all of the information without all of the paper.
What specific feature did you like most about DocLanding? The ability to share documents, files and cabinets with individuals or groups.
What would be three other benefits about DocLanding that you would like to share? Security, organization, ease of use. FEPAC deals with academics at the university level, forensic science practitioners, and administratives. Very few experience any difficulty using the site.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
After having used Doclanding for at least two review cycles, I am becoming better versed in knowing when and how to create appropriate groups. There is very little about Doclanding I would change.
