Northern Illinois University

Discover how the scalability of OnBase allowed Northern Illinois University to expand their solution allowing content to be shared across the entire campus.

We started using on base in the graduate admissions office back in 2004. Since 2004, OnBase spread across the university in many departments, including:

  • Undergraduate admissions
  • Records and registration
  • Financial aid
  • Accounting
  • Human resources
  • All of the college offices

I think I'm most proud of that. What we have achieved with OnBase at Northern Illinois University is that we're able to share content across the entire university. Before OnBase, someone would have a student file and maybe they were on vacation, you would play this game of hide-and-go-seek trying to find a document, trying to find content and you couldn't find it.

With OnBase, we're able to share the information in one centralized repository. We can share that information across the entire campus. Ultimately, with OnBase, we have one source of the truth. One document that is the truth for that particular student.
