Today, with the digitization of the admission process mandate, we are driving a tectonic shift in how Institutes large and small are turning from yesterday’s endless paper work admissions to NoPaperForms smart admissions. We are living in a digital world and its only rational that we keep up with the pace to help our next generation utilize every available prospective without getting trapped in age old methodology of enrollment.”
