Dear Keith:

I have been "talking" with many campuses over the last month about
integrated student "enrollment" services: recruitment, admission,
aid, registration, fee payment, etc. I am not aware of anyone who is
just admissions and registration.

There appear to be several themes emerging, out of the dual desire to
students better and control costs:

1) One stop shopping (bank lobby model). Physically locating
functions together. Counter staff are generalists who can respond to
questions and conduct normal business across all the functions.
are on call to respond to more technical questions/problems. "Back
processing operations are not interupted by student contact. Good
information system stands behind the entire organization.

2) Direct Access Technology. Give students direct access to key
functions so they don't have to visit offices to transact routine
Access technologies include touchtone, touch screen, and on-line
sytems and WWW). Functions provided include admitting, registering for
classes, printing grades, transcripts and class schedules, paying
obtaining financial aid status, etc.

3) Cross-Functional Teams. Assign students to teams of
of each of these functional areas. Teams are often under own
(customer service) while specialists and processing staff remain in
traditional offices.

4) Training. Lots and lots of technical cross training and
service training.

Of course there are other models, combination models, and many
I would still appreciate hearing the details of more student enrollment
process re-engineering efforts from other "BPRREENGers."

Hope this helps!

One of the most important sessions at the upcoming Business Process and
Workflow Conference is called "The Workflow Strategies of the Big
Lotus, Novell and Microsoft," by Connie Moore and Torrey Byles,
senior analysts at Giga Information Group (formerly BIS Strategic
Decisions). This indepth session covers how the Big Three compare as
workflow and electronic commerce providers.

Connie and Torrey wanted me to pass on a question from them, however,
help them make the presentation more meaningful for users.

"What do potential *buyers* of ad hoc workflow, production workflow and
intercompany workflow/electronic commerce software need to know about
Microsoft, Novell and Lotus' workflow strategies? "

Your specific questions and observations about their strategies are
welcomed. You may post to the group if you think this a topic you'd
like to
continue sharing or reply directly to me, and I'll pass on the
responses to
the Connie & Torrey.

Many thanks

As you may be aware, The Ohio State University is currently working on
re-engineering its accounting and human resource systems. As I
it, in the next month or so, decisions MAY be made to begin
our procurement systems and our admissions. Sorry, I can't give any
stories at this time -- interested in the same materials.

Our Steering Committee is looking at recommending that our Admissions
very decentralized registrarial services processes be reengineered.
Senior management is quite skeptical.
Do you know of any reengineering success stories in these areas that we
point to?
Your help is much appreciated.
