Workflow for Education
How can workflow automation help educational organizations?
In education, whether it's a large university or a local school district when it comes to managing workflows, accuracy and accountability are critical. Educational institutions deal with a tremendous amount of paperwork and regulations that must be managed daily. By automating the workflow around things like hiring, grant proposals, vendor management, capital expenditure and expense requests, centralized approvals, operations requests, etc. paper and manual processes disappear, leaving a more efficient and productive organization in its place.
Educational institutions and organizations need a cost-effective solution that allows for both creation and re-use of customized, automated processes that can:
With workflow automation, you can streamline workflow in critical, student-facing departments like Financial Aid, Admissions, Registration and Academic Records. For instance, are there ways your financial aid office could better communicate with your admissions office on scholarship availability or your payroll office on student work-study funding?
By providing the back office with powerful automated processes and students with a customized portal to submit requests and information, schools can ensure that students get what they need and the workload on administration staff is reduced, especially around heavy admission seasons.
By replacing slow, manual processes with an automated workflow you can move students through their processes faster, improving their experience and earning more revenue for the school.
Every educational institution maintains a portfolio of applications that help get things done: Accounting, CRM, MRM, ERP, etc. Each of these enterprise applications does what it does extremely well. However, there is always work that needs to get done across multiple departments and/or systems. There are internal processes that are platform agnostic and, instead, look at the organization itself as the platform.
Implementing a workflow automation system that can talk to these existing applications and pass information between them ensures that processes aren't stymied by chokepoints between systems. Integrify can be the "glue" that holds your disparate systems together.
What can educational institutions automate with Integrify? Here is a small list of examples:
“For all the users on this campus, even those initially resistant to change, they can now see where their request is, rather than just think it’s a piece of paper laying on someone’s desk somewhere.”
