Education

In today’s competitive environment, higher education institutions are challenged to offer the best education and research environment possible while optimizing costs

“Streamlining our account request process means we are less reliant on manual paper-based work. We achieved our goal of having an electronic, online account request process.”

Natalie Metzger, Middleware Developer, Old Dominion University

Old Dominion University’s streamlined account request process

  • Five processes handle all approval and account creation tasks
  • After deploying the automated processes, the University has seen a significant increase in the speed of account request handling (three times as fast)
  • About 15% of ODU’s daily account requests are processed online, and this percentage is constantly growing
  • Reduced turnaround time from three days to one day for requests completed online
     

One of the world’s leading research and teaching institutions’ grant invoicing and payment allocation process

  • Grant administrators and payroll staff use efficient process-based applications processes combined with complex calculations to determine research faculty salary to include grant funds from multiple research projects
  • End users are busy faculty members, who insist on a tool that is intuitive and easy to use
  • More than 200 faculty and an additional 300 staff use Bonita BPM for their grant invoicing process
  • The time to process grant invoices was significantly reduced, saving the school a large amount of money by greatly increasing staff efficiency
  • Complex payroll calculations were completely automated, reducing the amount of time required to fill out forms and eliminating the need to walk paper forms around the campus
