Oppenheim-Ephratah-St. Johnsville (OESJ) Central School District is a a small, rural K-12 district in upstate NY. Everything was done using paper and sneakers. Their Director of Technology, Bill Cooper, decided to tackle the problem of reducing paper use.
After investigating a few solutions, OESJ selected frevvo Cloud for its drag-and-drop design, robust dynamic forms, integration with Google Apps and other systems and the ability to route the form to different recipients based on user data.
Fantastic, everything we needed in one platform.
“We are a small K-12 public school of fewer than 800 students and we are treated like a Fortune 500 company. If you’re serious about eliminating your paper documents, no matter the size of your company or organization, then frevvo is the answer.”

OESJ started with their Purchase Request workflow and digitized it to eliminate the paperwork, back-and-forth for chasing down signatures and corrections and error-handling. They’ve now automated Vacation Request and HR On-boarding workflows as well. The On-boarding workflow dramatically reduced duplicate data entry and automatically generates Government PDF forms like W-4 and I-9.
The benefits are enormous:
- Inefficient paper forms with duplicate data entry have been eliminated and seamlessly replaced with online ones.
- Integration with Google makes it easy to sign in; documents are also automatically uploaded to Google Drive.
- Teachers spend less time chasing signatures and have more time to spend on students.
OESJ intends to continue digitizing additional forms & workflows such as Parent Permission forms and to integrate them with their School Information and Accounting systems.
