Provide secure access to all information across departments

The new system implemented by ImageSource allows MiraCosta College to sync all of the organization's critical information with every department.


With nearly 45,000 applications submitted annually, student services was especially incapacitated by the lack of robust paperless technology. The old system was failing in many critical areas, the thick client software required local installs at each workstation, driving up IT support costs and frustrating information seekers.
