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
"Having our processes online with FlowForma Process Automation, meant that when we shifted to working from home because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the students and staff of Abingdon & Witney College could input to vital emergency processes such as Trips and Visits, Risk Assessment and Incident Reporting. Having these types of processes available anywhere at anytime, is absolutely crucial in an emergency. We’re planning on building lots of Return To College processes on the FlowForma tool to help us as we prepare for the new normal at the college."
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.
