Great example of a document management, printing and distribution service for a public-sector educational institution

Yesterday, I visited the “procurement” web-site of NKU (Northern Kentucky University) to see how that public-sector school is handling “documents” for new construction and renovation projects for its facilities.

I printed the “page(s)" that I eventually wound up on. If you click-on the link I’ve provided below, you will see that NKU has an arrangement with ARC to host its documents for procurements related to NKU projects.

Everything is nicely organized. ARC is managing the documents, and visitors to the page I visited can “link to” ARC PlanWell to access the documents, to view the documents and to order “prints” of the documents.

This is, I think, a perfect way for reprographers to introduce this concept (of a reprographer with a planroom service, offering document management, printing and distribution services) to public-sector educational institutions and to government-sector procurement agencies.

Here’s the link to the document I mentioned above:

…..about NKU

Northern Kentucky University (NKU) is a public, co-educational university located in Highland Heights, Kentucky, seven miles (11 km) southeast of Cincinnati. NKU is primarily an undergraduate, liberal arts institution, but it also features graduate programs. Total enrollment at the university currently exceeds 15,000 students, with over 13,000 undergraduate students and over 2,000 graduate students.[4] NKU is the third largest university in Greater Cincinnati and the youngest of Kentucky's eight state universities, although it is not the last to join the state system, as the University of Louisville did not become a state university until 1970. NKU is also among the top 600 institutions named to Forbes Magazine's 2010 & 2011 "America's Best Colleges" ranking.
