Select users can be trained and certified by Hyland Software to become OnBase Certified Department Administrators that can manage the OnBase configuration process, Workflows, Unity forms and other related responsibilities at the departmental level. There are now a multitude OnBase Certified Department Administrators across the university system supporting administrative, research and education solutions. The UIS Enterprise Content Services Team plays a consulting role with these certified administrators and a direct support role for all other areas that do not have a certified admin on staff. We encourage new customers to consider the certification option for their implementation.
