CARLSBAD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PerfectForms, a company that enables anyone to create custom workflow applications online, today announced the launch of PerfectForms for Education to provide a simple and cost-effective way for educators to move traditionally paper-based processes online. PerfectForms’ simple point-and-click tools enable anyone to build applications and begin using them in days, versus the weeks or months it would take to develop similar applications using traditional methods.
Designed for both K-12 and higher education environments, PerfectForms for Education enables schools to create custom workflows that suit their specific needs, or choose from 60 pre-built templates to address common tasks quickly. Educators can customize any of the templates to reflect their school colors, logos or typeface.
Higher education templates include:
K-12 templates include:
PerfectForms’ versatility, reasonable price-point and ease of use make it the ideal solution for educators under pressure to do more with less. By eliminating paperwork, improving communication and keeping critical information from getting lost in the shuffle, schools that use PerfectForms have increased efficiency and significantly reduced administrative costs.
"Next to email, our process automation system, based on PerfectForms, is expected to be the most important means of communication in the district,” said Al Foytek, director of business information systems at Visalia Unified School District. Under pressure to reduce costs without making any large IT investments, Visalia identified 100 administrative processes that could be replaced with online, form-based processes. One process alone, which handles work order requests for the district’s print shop, is expected to save $10,000 per year in the cost of forms and many times that figure in related labor savings.
Mike Abney, process improvement facilitator at the University of Tennessee at Martin says, “PerfectForms is the most user-friendly process implementation tool I've come across.” Abney and other UT Martin PerfectForms users have used PerfectForms to address a number of processes from admissions and registration to student vaccination forms. In one of its most impactful implementations, UT Martin created and automated an online student ID request form. Doing so eliminated the process-heavy orientation system where freshmen students would stand in line to have their pictures taken on move-in day and then wait for an ID to be created. Instead, new students can now upload a picture of themselves online while registering for summer orientation and their ID cards will be waiting for them when they arrive on campus.
“By introducing an environment that’s built specifically for educators, already stocked with dozens of applicable templates to work with, we’re trying to make life easier for administrators, teachers, IT professionals, students and parents at schools around the country,” said Tom Allanson, CEO of PerfectForms. “The beauty of our software is that it can handle the heavy lifting that an IT pro might require, but it’s built for the average person to use. With PerfectForms, anyone can take control of the processes they own by automating them online.”
