Document Imaging System

The Document Imaging system is an enterprise content management system supported by ITS and is available for use throughout the University. It enables users to efficiently capture and organize images of paper documents or electronic documents, retrieve those documents securely, and access them using a web or client interface. It is known by two names: WebNow and Perceptive Content. WebNow is simply the web-based version of the Perceptive Content software.

Staff members who have a need to view documents stored in the Document Imaging system, can do so by using WebNow directly, or access documents via links within one of our MPathways systems (i.e., Financials, Student Administration, or Human Resource Management), Donor Alumni Relationship Tool (DART), or ServiceLink - Case Management module. Each of these systems have integrations with the Document Imaging system to provide users with easy access to appropriate documents for their business needs.

Staff members who have a need to scan, index, and store documents on their own into the Document Imaging system, need to use the Perceptive Content client version of the software, which is installed on an individual’s PC.

For those departments who have a large volume of documents that they would like to be scanned, indexed, and stored in the Document Imaging system, (and don’t believe that they can do it themselves), users may choose to leverage the central scanning service offered by the Shared Services Center - Document Imaging. Please contact the Shared Services Center directly if that is the case.
