CIOs at Universities and K-12 schools understand the importance and urgency of digital transformation. There’s tremendous opportunity to radically improve the student experience within the institution.
There’s a lot of confusion on what exactly digital transformation means when it comes to education.
Schools must be very careful when they plan activities for students. Whether it’s a study tour, sports activity or even simply using the student’s personal information for a media event, it is of utmost importance that the school first gets the necessary consent forms signed from the parents to avoid any confusion later.
Got a kid in school? You’re probably used to him or her bringing home pieces of paper to sign. More often than not, these are parental consent forms for everything from a field trip to media release to athletic participation.
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 K-12 schools (public and private) use frevvo to automate routine day-to-day workflows from travel authorization to permission slips to absence records. They love capabilities like the visual, low-code designers, dynamic behavior, and built-in mobile but also love the speed and ROI of digital transformation.
Watch this short 2m explainer video to see how they’re getting rid of paper- and email-based processes, converting them to digital and freeing up teachers and staff to focus on students instead of chasing signatures.
University students are accustomed to doing everything on their phone. 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.
From Student/Parent forms for signature to built-in mobile support to complex authorizations, frevvo has powerful, easy-to-use and incredibly affordable solutions for Higher Ed institutions. We offer educational discounts and a wealth of resources to ensure that your workflow automation is successful, increases productivity and allows you to focus on what’s important – students.
The world is your classroom – learning can and should happen outside the school. Field trips have been instrumental in education for hundreds of years. But a valuable learning experience takes significant planning and execution.
One of the most tedious aspects of a field trip is getting the requisite parental permissions. It means handing out paper forms to students, hoping that students bring them to their parents, collect the signature and return the forms to the teacher. It means following up with students and parents who forgot or lost the form. Wouldn’t you rather focus on the concepts and learning outcomes of the trip?
With frevvo, automating parental permissions is easy. Click a button to initiate the process. If your school uses Google Apps for Education, the list of students, parent emails and other relevant information can be automatically retrieved from a Google Spreadsheet. Fill in some field trip information and click to initiate the authorization workflows. That’s it.
frevvo will send an email to each parent with a link that they can click on. Student and field trip information is pre-filled. All parents need to do is fill in a couple of Emergency Contact fields, sign electronically (smart phone, tablet or desktop) and Finish.
A PDF will be generated and e-mailed to the teacher with a copy to the parent. It contains all required data including the parent signature. If your school uses Google Apps for Education, the PDF can also be stored in Google Drive in the appropriate location or to your document management system. No need to file away paper slips. Of course, if necessary, you can always print the PDF.
