Central Wyoming College serves Fremont, Hot Springs and Teton Counties. CWC is committed to supporting students through their educational journey and helping them achieve success.
CWC wants to reduce their reliance on paper and sneaker-net processes. They saw significant value in streamlining their PO process which involves calculations, lookups and dynamic routing fixing a particularly error-procedure as a result.
“Our PO workflow was automated in record time. The forms look good and are
easy-to-use. frevvo’s system just works and meets our needs at reasonable cost.”
Chief Information Officer
CWC selected frevvo to automate their PO process because of its modern look & feel, speed of implementation, ease of use and dynamic routing.
As a result of the streamlined PO process, hours of staff time have been reduced and CWC staff can get back to focusing on students rather than administrative tasks.

We’ve seen that many customers use frevvo to automate Purchase Orders. It’s the most frequent one. One of our partners asked me if I could quantify what’s it really worth. So, I tried to measure it for a 3-step approval workflow and the result was surprising at least to me. Here are the assumptions:
- An Employee costing $80,000/year (including benefits/taxes/vacation etc.) saves 10 min using an e-form.
- A Manager costing $100,000/year saves 3 min for each approval.
- An Accounting Manager costing $60,000/year saves 3 min for each invoice.
- There are 400 approvals/month (for all kinds of workflows PO, Leave Approval, Travel Authorization, Time Sheet etc.).
You’ll save ~$50K every single year or 57% of your costs. It’s amazing how much the paper/email process actually costs you – close to $85K per year. You’ll see positive ROI in just a bit over 2 months. And that doesn’t even take into account the time spent trying to track down emails, chasing down managers for signatures or, perhaps of greater importance, the Opportunity Cost of delayed approvals.

Aero Communications inc. provides customer-focused technology solutions to broadband and wireless providers, businesses, public venues, government facilities, and residential subscribers.
The company was using a number of paper, Excel & InfoPath forms for everyday business processes such as Vehicle Inspections, Facilities Maintenance, Financial Forms and Warehouse Orders. Many of them require approvals forcing employees to email them around and print/sign/scan for approval. In addition, the existing forms could not pull data from SQL databases resulting in excessive and duplicate data entry, errors, corrections and inefficiencies.
