IRVINE, Calif., July 20, 2021–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kofax®, a leading supplier of Intelligent Automation software for digital workflow transformation, and platinum partner Coforce of Ede, Netherlands, today announce they’re partnering to help digitally transform the education sector. Coforce is also working with iPM Partners on this solution to ultimately help educational institutions implement Robotic Process Automation (RPA) software to automate myriad manual, time consuming and expensive manual workflows common in the education sector – enabling more streamlined, cost-efficient operations.
“It’s inspiring to work with our Dutch partner Coforce to accelerate digital workflow transformation in the education industry,” says David Powell, Senior Vice President of EMEA Sales at Kofax. “The innovative automation solutions they’ve developed and compelling customer successes that have resulted speak to the impact intelligent automation plays in helping organizations operate more cost effectively and efficiently.”
Educational institutions are increasingly turning to Coforce, which has built a strong track record of RPA successes. Coforce, an RPA specialist active in a number of sectors, uses Kofax RPA and Kofax TotalAgility® software to provide customers with scalable solutions and support of their automation use-cases. For instance, ROC Midden-Nederland and other Dutch educational institutions are actively rolling out Kofax RPA as a Digital Teaching Assistant within their respective organizations. ROC Midden-Nederland is looking beyond individual automation projects, examining how RPA technology can play a strategic, organization-wide role at scale.
“Coforce is delighted to help the Dutch education sector adopt Kofax RPA so they can get to the next level in their digitization journey,” says Erik van Doorn, Founder and Managing Director at Coforce. “Leveraging iPM’s knowledge as a specialized consultancy firm in education, we’re happy to support our customers and ensure tangible ROI.”
The Kofax/Coforce enhanced partnership is enabling customers to scale automation quickly. Within a one-year period, more than five primary processes were automated using Digital Teaching Assistants including:
- The registration process for new students
- Absence registration or absence administration
- Student tracking system and associated administration
- Scheduling lessons and teachers more efficiently
- Onboarding and registering new employees
- Invoice processing and administrative mail workflows
ROC Midden-Nederland has already identified additional use-cases for expansion, and expects the pace of those automations to accelerate in the coming months.
