[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.

Many Universities are already using frevvo (Syracuse,La Cité College, Harvard, NYU, University of California, and others) for Student Registration, Internship Applications, and internal HR/Finance workflows. Students love using mobile devices and not having to stand in line.

These everyday approvals take an exorbitant amount of time if done manually. Students and staff are waiting longer than necessary and spending more time/money than necessary to tackle these routine tasks. There’s also a much higher rate of inaccuracy in the manual process. Our infographics and other blog articles discuss how frevvo’s affordable, cloud-based workflow products for Higher Ed process automation can improve efficiencies in these areas. We’ve also created a short (2 min) video below to show you the benefits of using frevvo in your College/University.

[Infographic] Higher Ed Process Automation

infographic_wireframe_frevvo_jan2016_3In previous posts, we’ve described how some of our College & University customers are using frevvo to automate routine processes and improve efficiency and services to students and staff.

University students are accustomed to doing everything on their phone. The clientele is often millenials. They’re comfortable with technology and live on their mobile devices. Many Universities are already using frevvo (Syracuse, La Cité College, Harvard, NYU, University of California, and others) for Student Registration, Internship Applications, and internal HR/Finance workflows. Students love using mobile devices and not having to stand in line.

In many cases, once they deployed frevvo, they realized that a lot of precious IT time was being spent to do simple things like event registration, food services surveys etc. The fact that a business user can create a simple form with frevvo and crucially, can collect and download the submissions themselves to MS Excel, makes this a killer app for many customers.

Everyday approvals take an exorbitant amount of time if done manually. Students and staff are waiting longer than necessary and spending more time/money than necessary to tackle these routine tasks. There’s also a much higher rate of inaccuracy in the manual process.

Check out this new infographic on the value/benefits of automating your day-to-day workflows.

It’s 2016! There’s simply no excuse for outdated, manual systems that cause delays, result in unhappy students and staff and wasted time and money.

With affordable, cloud-based workflow products for Higher Education process automation, there’s no need to deal with printing PDFs for signatures, correcting Excel-based time sheets, or tracking down approvals in email.

[Infographic] The 8 Wastes in Higher Education

The-8-Wastes-in-Higher-Education-Infographic-1000x2989Came across this great infographic over at eLearning Infographics and it really resonated. I’ve worked recently with a Higher Ed institution (La Cité College – see this blog article and case study) and this stuff came up all the time.

Business improvement is not restricted to huge companies like Toyota, GE and Exxon nor to any specific industry or vertical. Every industry has been using process improvement to try and transform services they offer to their customers.

For Colleges & Universities, that’s students, faculty and staff. As La Cité put it:

The future success of post-secondary institutions lies in our ability to deliver excellent services to our students.

Students, faculty and staff are incredibly busy and don’t want to waste time waiting for decisions/approvals, re-working to fix errors, manually handing off tasks so that the appropriate people have access to them.

It’s 2016! Digitize those approvals on mobile devices and instantly improve services to everyone.

La Cité College chooses frevvo for student applications integrated with Salesforce, DocuShare and Oracle.

Deeply rooted in the National Capital Region and Eastern Ontario for over a quarter of a century, La Cité is the largest French-speaking applied arts and technology College in Ontario.

1200+ registration forms have already been submitted electronically with a 24/7 service offering. Students save time since they no longer have to stand in line for registration. Instead of lining up, they simply complete the process on their smartphones.

La Cité serves a diverse population from students and faculty to a large student body. Students, in particular, prefer to use their mobile phones for almost everything. Yet most of La Cité’s forms and applications were paper or PDF documents that had to be printed out, hand-filled and signed. They didn’t integrate with databases, DocuShare (their document management system) or salesforce.com (CRM).

That means students filling out long forms by hand and standing in long lines to register, internal employees scanning and indexing paper forms and a tedious, inefficient overall experience.

Students love the built-in mobile support. Now that the forms are compatible with devices, 60% of responses have come in on mobile.

La Cité decided that they needed to improve services to students and staff. They selected frevvo Live Forms and, in a matter of months, they’ve replaced several paper/PDF forms with electronic ones. They’re available 24/7, work automatically on mobile devices, and integrate with DocuShare, Oracle and salesforce.com. frevvo forms also work in multiple languages including French, which is the dominant language on La Cité’s campus. Data is pre-populated, frevvo’s build-in validation ensures fewer errors, documents are automatically stored in DocuShare and salesforce and students are no longer standing in line.

Co-Op applications, which used to be paper are now electronic. As a result, the number of applications has gone up from about 10 in previous years to over 70.

The results have been impressive and La Cité plans to roll out several additional forms and workflows in the coming months.
