How to build efficiencies and securities through forms process automation
Part One: Devising a More Dynamic Workflow
COVID forced the greatest beta test in the history of education. The world’s abrupt migration to remote and hybrid working and learning, while tragic and disruptive, has also inspired school district leaders to not only reinvent teaching methods in the classroom but also recreate paperless processes in the central office. In other words-—no more crumpled forms lost in the bottom of backpacks.
Join eSchool News’ panel of experts in the first of two online conversations to discuss building efficiencies in education. Discover how automating your district’s various workflows—from staff onboarding and 1:1 device management to digitized e-signature consent forms—can improve the user experience for administrators, educators, parents, and students alike, while also saving time and money.
