IData Partnership Combines Largest e-Transcript Solution Docufide with Middleware Client to Provide Unparalleled Integration and Automated Data Transfer, Reducing Administrative Burden

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (May 21, 2012) – Transmitting transcript and other education credentials data between disparate student information systems often creates headaches and delays for college administrators. Through a new partnership with IData, Parchment Inc. is simplifying transcript and credential data exchange for higher education institutions. The education credentials pioneer has teamed up with IData to integrate transcript exchange processes into college student information systems (SIS), including market leaders Jenzabar, Datatel, and Oracle PeopleSoft, among many others.

The partnership enables colleges and universities to send and receive transcript data from Docufide® by Parchment™ in their preferred data format and easily manage the process from within their SIS, reducing the need for active staff management. By integrating Docufide into its SIS, an institution can process requests based on existing SIS business rules, including automated approval or hold. In cases where an exception such as a transcript hold or error prevents automated action, the solution sends a notification to review the request. Staff can then evaluate and process the requests on a case-by-case basis. The new solution produces efficient transcript fulfillment services for students while freeing up staff to address critical admissions and enrollment needs.

“Many student information systems have different data standards and rules, which creates a challenge for importing and exporting data to and from external sources,” said Matthew Pittinsky, CEO of Parchment. “Not only is our integrated solution a time-saver, it also ensures timely access to credentials data to support data-driven decision-making among college administrators.”

Docufide is a leading e-transcript service for colleges and universities, including Capella University, California Polytechnic State University, and City Colleges of Chicago. The solution enables the secure, rapid exchange of millions of electronic transcripts and other student records for colleges, with trading partners such as schools, state education agencies, scholarship organizations and individuals. IDataHub is a middleware client that resides within an institution’s network, providing a secure and audited layer between Docufide and a school’s student information system. The IDataHub is built to be a lean, robust tool that provides a simple, true end-to-end integration.

“Parchment is a natural partner for IData because of its like-minded mission for helping higher education institutions maximize the effectiveness of their data operations,” said Brian Parish, president of IData Inc. “Paring Docufide with the IDataHub is a proven way for colleges and universities to generate the most value from their investments.”
