Perceptive Content for CCU

What exactly is Perceptive Content?

Perceptive Content (formerly called ImageNow) is a dynamic content management system. In a nutshell, it is software that allows us to manage documents electronically throughout our campus. We can store and retrieve documents, send documents to other users, complete tasks like approving invoice, and sign forms like graduation applications - all electronically. Coastal Carolina University is committed to becoming a paperless institution and improving our overall efficiency so we can spend more time on what really matters – our students.
