Digital Transformation with the Many Use Cases of InfoReady

The way we work, learn, interact, and communicate has been changing for many years and has only accelerated due to the global pandemic. Remote and hybrid environments are much more common now than even two years ago. The changes are impacting all parts of society.

One of the ways institutions and organizations are adapting is through digital transformation, which EDUCAUSE defines as "a series of deep and coordinated culture, workforce, and technology shifts that enable new educational and operating models and transform an institution’s operations, strategic directions, and value proposition."

Many institutions find the InfoReady platform an invaluable tool in helping them transform multiple (and disparate) business processes and use cases from paper-based forms collected manually or as email attachments into digital forms that facilitate automation. Aside from form collection, InfoReady automates many other aspects of a business process, such as the communication with other stakeholders. Administrators have been known to take 30 seconds out of their day to push out additional reminders to reviewers by simply pushing a button on their phones while on vacation.

Another very important transformation involves review and approval workflows. Administrators are able to create either simple or complex workflows to collect reviews, approvals, and scores from anywhere. Maybe a student needs approvals from an academic advisor and a professor for a travel opportunity or study abroad program. Perhaps a faculty member's application needs department chair and dean approval before it goes before a committee. InfoReady can streamline the workflow, manage the communication, automate the review assignments, and present all the information in a customizable dashboard. All of this comes with improved data management. An institution can set-up InfoReady to be used for scores of processes and in multiple units, all at the same time. Some institutions manage hundreds of opportunities per year and collect thousands of applications a year through InfoReady.

Part of the reason is that an InfoReady license does not come with a cap on the number of processes you manage, applications you accept, reviews you assign, or final decisions you make. Use the system as much as you want or need. The chart below provides several examples of different use cases actively being managed in InfoReady by over 175 institutions across the world.
