Transcript Processing Efficiency: 8 Tips, Strategies, and Tools for Speed & Accuracy
Empowering Higher Education with Streamlined Transcript Processing
EXPEDITE TRANSCRIPT PROCESSING
In today's fast-paced and competitive higher education landscape, admissions and registrar officers face numerous challenges in processing the increasing volume of high school, transfer credit, international, and military transcripts. Traditional manual data entry is time-consuming, costly, and prone to errors, while outdated systems struggle to integrate with course equivalency databases and provide efficient processing, resulting in delays and missed opportunities for enrollment.
Shamrock Solutions’ innovative OCR transcript processing solution, Freedom, is intentionally designed to address these pain points. Freedom will revolutionize the way your Admissions & Registrar departments operate by empowering your teams to focus on selecting the best candidates, and shaping the future of your institution.
Freedom assists higher education institutions by streamlining the management of high school, transfer credit, international, and military transcripts, significantly reducing processing time and manual data entry costs. Its seamless integration with course equivalency databases and existing systems simplifies the admissions process, enabling admissions and registrar officers to make faster, more informed decisions.
As a result, higher education institutions can provide a more efficient and satisfying experience for prospective students, ultimately enhancing their reputation and competitiveness in the increasingly demanding higher education landscape.

High School Transcripts - A Game Changer
Freedom's ability to process high school transcripts and make sense of high school coursework sets it apart from other providers. It standardizes and extracts meaning from varied high school coursework, integrating with a university's course equivalency database for easier staff review. With the growing trend of "test optional" policies, accurately addressing past coursework and awarding relevant credit hours is more important than ever.
Transcript-as-a-Service (TAAS) Model
Freedom offers a TAAS model, our twist on the SAAS (software as a service) concept. Institutions can submit their transcripts to Shamrock, and our team will process them through Freedom, delivering the data back to the university staff or SIS within 24 hours. This "touchless" option provides an efficient and seamless experience for admissions teams.
Freedom is hosted in the cloud, eliminating the need for on-site infrastructure for institutions in either self-service or TAAS models. Simply access the platform through your web browser.
Freedom's algorithm capabilities will improve over time as more transcripts are processed, increasing its value as the platform matures.

WE'RE PROCESS SOLVERS!
Shamrock was born out of a passion for solving the critical business problems
that prevent you from doing great work.
As an institution for higher learning, you are challenged to provide best-in-class service in support of people’s futures. The complexities of today’s higher-ed landscape go beyond paperless operation – especially when critical information exists outside of your core systems like SIS, ERP, and CRM.
It’s possible that you’re not able to access key information that better enables you to make important decisions directly related to the futures you’re helping to create. And if gaps in your processes are slowing your team down – you’re likely suffering the impact of higher stress, poor motivation and a disjointed approach towards your overall mission.
Shamrock Solutions helps to eliminate the negative impact of disjointed processes and applications for your campus. With years of implementation experience in higher education, we can create a level of student communication management, secure file sharing, electronic form creation, and custom workflow development that seamlessly connects with your existing systems and applications.
The same core capabilities that power our transcript processing platform can also transform time-consuming, manual tasks in student-focused and administrative areas across campus. Potent use cases include application management in financial aid, document classification and indexing in the business office, invoice processing in AP/AR, compliance, and many more.
