Client Partners Inspire Workflow for Activity Insight

We recently released the new Workflow Module for managing university processes within Activity Insight. For the past year, we collaborated with more than 25 partner clients to expand our previous capabilities to make the Workflow Module even more powerful.

Activity Insight simplifies collecting information from faculty and building reports. Our Workflow Module brings the same efficiency to annual faculty reviews, promotion and tenure, sabbatical requests and more.

With easy-to-use tools, you can now make your university’s processes paperless and predictable. Materials get into the right hands—and only the right hands—at the right time, automated reminders ensure tasks are completed on schedule, and status updates empower faculty and administrators to track progress, all in one secure system. And it’s seamlessly integrated within Activity Insight so you can fully leverage your faculty’s accomplishments in the processes you digitize. You’ll never have to ask faculty to input the same information twice.

Collaboration with clients drives everything we do at Digital Measures. Thank you to our partner universities: your enthusiasm and feedback during our product development process made the evolution of our new Workflow Module possible.  

Workflow makes Activity Insight a truly one-stop shop for gathering, reporting and evaluating faculty qualifications, accomplishments and impact. We use this blog to share clients’ success, so watch in the weeks ahead for stories of improving key university processes with Workflow.
