FlowForma® Process Automation is empowering educational institutions to rapidly bring their processes online, reaping benefits such as visibility, improved customer experiences and process efficiency, all while maximizing their existing Microsoft Office 365 investment
"We have transparency and visibility that we didn’t have before, and a consistency in the data that makes it much easier to generate reports. It encourages everyone to act far more professionally than when we depended on paper. You can’t submit half filled-in boxes because the system won’t let you. Even little things, like the better understanding it gives people of their own cost centre, helps improve the professionalism of the organization."
Mark Lay, Finance Director, Abingdon & Witney College
Working with organization within the Education Sector, we understand their challenges when it comes to cutting down on costs, increasing operational efficiency and meeting increased customer/student demands.
How Educational Institutions Add Value with FlowForma Process Automation
Increasing Operational Effectiveness
Educational Institutions are looking to bring their paper based processes online, the FlowForma Process Automation tool enables organizations in this sector to prototype, test and deploy processes faster. Processes can be measured using dashboards with real time data to provide visibility of where a process lies, ultimately saving significant time and money for organizations in the education sector.
Trips and Visits Process
A 'Trips and Visits' process commonly requires sign off on student excursions from managerial personnel, across various departments within the institution. Such processes are often completed using paper and as a result, plagued by bottlenecks due to lost and incomplete forms. With FlowForma Process Automation these requests can be turned around in less than a day rather than weeks.
Continuous Business Improvement
Organizations in the Education sector using the FlowForma Process Automation tool can compile a thorough analysis of data, using several reporting tools such as Microsoft Power BI and KPIs (Key Performance Indicators), to help identify spikes for further investigation. Consistency in this data makes it much easier to generate reports and offers a vast increase in transparency and visibility for business users.
Empowering New Efficiencies
The FlowForma Process Automation tool has significantly advanced business efficiencies to Educational Institutions. Simple actions such as pre-configured fields or drop-down list in the tool, like injuries in an Accident and Incident process, can play an integral role in speeding up processes.
