Located in Washington, D.C., The George Washington University (GWU) is a world-renowned independent academic institution. Chartered by the Congress of the United States in 1821, GWU commits itself to excellence in the creation, dissemination and application of knowledge. The University draws upon the rich array of resources from the National Capital Area to enhance its educational endeavors. In return, the University, through its students, faculty, staff, and alumni, contributes talent and knowledge to improve the quality of life in metropolitan Washington, D.C.
When GWU implemented SharePoint in 2013, they wanted to make it Service Enterprise capable. However, successfully developing workflows within SharePoint for an institution this large and complex would require a serious commitment from the university’s IT resources, which were already limited. Therefore, in order to save resources, they sought a product that would enable end-users to create very simple automation processes—such as workflows and forms.
After considering different Business Process Automation (BPA) solutions and working with DocPoint Solutions consultants, the University purchased Nintex Enterprise Workflow and Forms. Along with the solution, they purchased Nintex online training videos from DocPoint. However, their stakeholders required a more hands-on approach so they engaged DocPoint to design and deliver a customized three-day training program to ensure user adoption. Through working with DocPoint, the University’s stakeholders realized the business value of this solution and have gone on to increase efficiencies by creating and using Nintex Workflows and Forms to support their core business processes.
“It is our goal to assist offices throughout The George Washington University in improving processes by giving them the tools they need to succeed. With DocPoint, we have been able to break down past barriers to innovation and put face-to-face communication between IT and stakeholders.
Having a responsive partner, such as DocPoint, is invaluable during a roll out, such as this, in order to increase user adoption.”
— Mark Albert, Director of University Web & Identity Services
