As ReviewRoom continues to grow and the word spreads about our unique application tracking solutions, we are honored to be given the opportunity to serve organizations such as the NYC Department of Education and their Connected Learning program.
The Connected Learning program aims to improve “digital inclusion” with less fortunate communities across New York and raise the level of achievement for middle-school students. We fully support their efforts and are proud that ReviewRoom was the perfect fit for their needs!
Connected Learning receives grant money from the government to distribute to schools that participate in the program. The Connected Learning program is in charge of receiving, processing and reviewing the applications to determine which schools in NYC should receive a share of the grant money.
The paperwork involved in facilitating such a distribution is astounding. With 72 schools involved in the Connected Learning program, and a total enrollment exceeding 50,000, the required number of labor hours would be in the hundreds as well.
A solution which would reduce administrative efforts, automate repetitive tasks and ensure higher submission quality was sorely needed in order to save time and taxpayers’ money.
ReviewRoom was the ideal solution to these needs for a variety of reasons.
ReviewRoom accepts applications online, as well as all supporting documents and attachments that are required for consideration. Every piece or component of a submission is tied together on the system and available to the program administrators and judges for reviewing, processing and one-click report generation.
This means that the Connected Learning reviewers will not have to sift through mountains of paperwork, or hundreds of emails in their inbox. ReviewRoom intelligently collects, files and arranges online applications so that effective decisions can be made.
The advanced task automation features of ReviewRoom would also prove to be a time-saver. ReviewRoom can automate tasks such as deadline reminders, report generation and sharing, application categorization and sorting, and much more. Fewer hours would need to be spent on these tasks thanks to ReviewRoom.
And thanks to ReviewRoom’s customization options and refined submission process, incomplete applications would be a thing of the past. ReviewRoom guides applicants along a very straight-forward path to ensure that all submission requirements are in place before the application can be sent for consideration.
ReviewRoom is improving every day. Our sales force and engineers are in-touch with the needs of organizations and companies today, and work diligently to incorporate features and options that are actually useful and valuable to our customers.
