[2m video] frevvo in Higher Education

Higher Education administrative costs have grown dramatically and faculty spend too much of their time (more than 30% in many cases) on non-academic activities.

Using frevvo, our University customers have automated day-to-day administrative workflows from expense reports to travel authorizations to purchase requisitions. They’re able to track and manage them better and dramatically reduce wasteful manual work and costs. They love the visual, low-code designers, dynamic behavior, and built-in mobile but also love the speed and ROI of digital transformation.

Watch this 2m explainer video to see how they’re using frevvo’s drag-and-drop software to easily digitize forms and workflows and free up faculty time to focus on students.

Web forms gallery

frevvo customers have created so many interesting, useful and just cool forms. We thought it’d be great to showcase some of them especially since our partners have asked about them. Check out some of the cool examples in our new Web Forms Gallery.

Let us know if there are any that you particularly like or if there are any features you’d like to see demonstrated there.

The Referral Engine

This is a pretty useful book: The Referral Engine. Figured I’d refer it here since, after all, it’s all about the power of positive referrals.

Most business owners believe that whether customers refer them is entirely out of their hands. But science shows that people can’t help recommending products and services to their friends—it’s an instinct wired deep in the brain. And smart businesses can tap into that hardwired desire.

It’s interesting: I’ve known about this but never thought about it in this way before.

Happy New Year

Well, it sure was an interesting year for us at frevvo … from major partnerships to big customers to some big disappointments as well. Excited about 2011 – it’s going to be great.

I’ve seen first hand how lack of clean water affects poor kids in India. Check out charity: water if you’re looking to get in those end of year donations.

Real-world forms for Google Spreadsheets

Do you need to create real forms with real features like multi-column layouts and automatic validation and save the data to an online Google spreadsheet? Event registrations, surveys, contact forms, you name it … we’ve heard over and over again that Google’s forms are just too simplistic.

With frevvo Live Forms, it’s a snap. Check out this 3 minute video to see how easy it is.

Of course, the form in here is simple but you can create forms as complex as you want and easily save them to a Google spreadsheet. We use this all the time for webinar registrations, demo signups for our own products.

Surveys, Event Registrations … in Confluence. Download to Excel.

How can you expand your Confluence-based Intranet so that your employees can do some of the common things organizations do like surveys and event registrations without needing a programmer every time?

What if your marketing employees could create a Confluence page, add a webinar registration form to it, view the registrations in Confluence or download them to Excel?

With Live Forms for Confluence, anyone can do it. See how easy it is in this video (less than 3 min)

Drop-dead simple Confluence Workflows

Workflows, in particular, simple approval workflows are extremely common at business organizations of all sizes. For example:

  • An Expense Report that must be approved by your Manager
  • Vacation Request that needs approval
  • Patient Referrals where a Nurse or Physician’s Assistant fills out the top part of a form, a Doctor has to sign it and then send it to the hospital
  • Issue Tracking where an Employee creates an internal support issue and admin support staff take multiple actions on the issue before closing it

It’s easy to automate these workflows using Live Forms for Confluence. You can view a 7 minute video or read this article in the documentation.

We’re excited about these powerful, easy-to-use workflows seamlessly integrated into Confluence. We think customers are going to find them super useful too.

Excited about our new Confluence release

It’s been an unbelievable time – obviously, we haven’t updated the blog at all recently. We’re really excited about our new product for Atlassian Confluence. We’ve been working with quite a few customers who have now successfully used frevvo within Confluence for things like:

  • Issue tracking systems
  • Event registration (download submissions to MS Excel)
  • Patient referral
  • Student enrollment

and many other applications.

The new version has full user/group integration with Confluence, works with your Active Directory/LDAP systems, includes workflows, digital signatures, task lists in Confluence, the ability to create/update Confluence pages from forms & workflows, the ability to collect multiple submissions in a single Confluence page etc.

I’ll be writing more about these over the next several weeks.
