With a system comprised of four campuses, a system office, and a University hospital, one of the primary goals of the University of Missouri System's ePAF™ implementation has been to deliver a flexible, system-wide solution while limiting campus-specific customizations. Early in the project, the University System decided on an approach to adopt best practice business processes where possible rather than modifying the eForms for each campus. As a result, they've been able to not only minimize the number of customizations, but also accelerate the speed of the project.
Since kicking-off the ePAF™ implementation in October, the project team has made rapid progress. In addition to their focus on best practice, the team has also chosen to have the University's technical staff lead the development of some of the new eForms with coaching from the GT team. This will ensure that the UM team is ready to support and extend the eForms solution once the project is complete.
The ePAF™ project is in the process of completing the first round of user testing and is on pace for a pilot launch in early 2013.
For its next phase of process automation, UM is preparing to implement the new GT OnBoarding™ solution, including eForms for Paperless I-9 with E-Verify Integration™, W4 and state tax forms, direct deposit, appointment notification, and personal data.
