SAN DIEGO, Sept. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- BP Logix, provider of BPM solutions for rapid workflow app development, today announced that Ogden-Weber Tech College implemented Process Director to replace a semi-automated, paper-based system for managing its key business processes. Seeking to gain efficiencies, reduce time and save money, Ogden-Weber wanted to implement a workflow-oriented solution that would automate and simplify those processes. Central to achieving that goal was reviewing the success achieved by its sister college, Davis Applied Technology College, then defining its own initiative and criteria.
Ogden-Weber Tech College was established in 1971 and moved under the auspices of the Utah State Office of Education in 1982. It was renamed the Ogden-Weber Area Vocational Center, which was changed to Ogden-Weber Applied Technology Center in the 1990s. In 2001 the college celebrated its 30th anniversary with a workforce of more than 150 employees, 300 + technical courses, 53 employment categories in 14 buildings and 9 locations. That same year the Utah State Legislature approved the tech college to be a Utah College of Applied Technology campus. The college currently serves over 6,000 adult and high school students each year. As a result of its high graduate job placement rate, Ogden-Weber Tech College has been chosen to receive a "Best of State" award in the "Education – Vocational Training – Public" category for the fifth year in a row.
Kyle Jensen is the Director of IT responsible for all IT functions of the college. Jensen's team supports 400 faculty and staff and 6,000 students. Prior to selecting Process Director, the College had relied on a document management system to track records, including purchase requisitions and admissions. Jensen envisioned a workflow-driven system that would create greater efficiencies and reduce costs. His vision also called for automating the key processes that would make an immediate impact and demonstrate a significant payback. Jensen selected Purchase Requisitions, New Hire Process and Enrollment/Admissions for the initial proof of concept. "We started with the Finance and HR processes, as they are core to campus-wide operations. We also recognized that we wanted to understand and refine the processes themselves, not simply automate what we had. We tore them apart and rebuilt them using Process Director. It was the right tool to automate our processes and accomplish our goals," he stated.
"We are excited about the vision that Ogden-Weber defined for this initiative," stated Jay O'Brien BP Logix CEO. "With Process Director deployed for these initial key processes, the College is already achieving the impact that Kyle identified," he concluded.
