Administrative costs and waste at Higher Education
grown dramatically and must be curtailed.
Professors today spend more than 30% of their
time on non-academic activities. As a result,
these institutions are under tremendous

Digital transformation in Higher Ed is about better service and efficiency
University CIOs understand the urgency and importance of automation.
The benefits are too great to ignore – from radically improving
the student experience to reducing waste in the business office.
Higher Ed is no different from other businesses
In every organization, digital transformation is about improving
business outcomes. It' the same for Universities and the
underlying imperatives are familiar:
Better service to customers: For a University the "customers" are
the students and their families. Automation, in this context, has a wide
range of applications – from online learning experiences to
applying for financial aid on their smartphones to digital
recruiting and registration to monitoring student
progress and flagging problems using smart apps.
Business office efficiency: Higher Ed institutions, especially
public ones have seen declining budgets. Yet,
administrative costs have spiraled out of control
and have contributed to a dramatic increase in the cost of
When faculty and staff are spending time on paperwork, they
aren't focusing on what's really important – students.
Business agility: Education is changing just as rapidly
as other industries in
response to technological advances. Colleges need to be able
to react rapidly, smooth the path to collaboration, and
fundamentally change how they operate to keep up with the
pace of change.
Automating processes facilitates
the University's most important mission
Read the mission statement of any University: we guarantee that
it says something about their emphasis on student learning.
But, the most important factor in student learning is their time
and that of the faculty. If students & faculty are wasting
time on paperwork using manual processes, they're spending
less of it on their core mission. That's why replacing
paper- or Excel-based forms and workflows with fully automated,
electronic versions is such a crucial business imperative. It
saves time, and that's a powerful business outcome.
Business Office processes like purchase orders and travel
requests, HR functions like absence records and
employee on-boarding, and student-facing forms like financial
aid application or housing requests are all ripe for automation.
Our visual, drag-and-drop software is so easy to use that
anyone can automate everyday processes and design electronic
forms without programming knowledge. Everything will automatically
work on mobile devices, generate PDFs documents, route to the
right person, support electronic signatures and a host of features.
You can even work with Student ERP systems like Banner,
Colleague or Jenzabar using our
sophisticated SQL database connector
. Present a beautiful, user-friendly interface while still
connecting with data from the ERP in real-time.
As part of their digital transformation initiatives, the University of Saint Francis has digitized hundreds of paper forms and processes.
"We chose frevvo Live Forms to digitize hundreds of paper-based
forms and workflows. The software is fast, easy-to-use and has
become one of our critical, go-to systems for automation projects."
Director of Enterprise Applications
"We created an account for them on the Live Forms
server and showed them the tutorials. They're creating
their own forms and exporting submissions to Excel. It took
less than 5 minutes of an ITS developer"s time."
James Bort, Technical Lead, Online Platforms
"Our future success lies in our ability to deliver exceptional
services to students and families. Live Forms is the best web-based
forms & workflow solution on the market today for our needs."
Director of Information Technology
"We needed an affordable solution that worked with
our existing PeopleSoft and HR Portal. Live Forms has the
best combination of usability, price, support and business
capabilities on the market today."

Many K-12 schools use Google Apps for Education – a suite that provides email, collaborative documents etc. School districts have hundreds of forms that can be digitized: Enrollments, Admissions, Emergency Contact Forms, Consent Forms and so on.
