Digital workflow automation banishes paper nightmares
At Copenhagen-based University College (UCC), proctor staff members were required to fill out paper timesheets and expense reports, which were routed by hand for manager approval. Once approved, the data was then manually inputted into the payroll system.
“Our old system was riddled with data input errors, missing signatures, poor authentication, and documentation omissions,” states Frank Güsmer, head of human resources. “It was difficult for our payroll staff to raise efficiency in the submission process.” As a result, proctor employees’ paychecks were often several days late, and the HR staff was burdened with complaints and administrative roll-backs.

Nintex Workflow automation replaces manual processes
According to Güsmer, Nintex Workflow was exactly the solution UCC was looking for. “Nintex enables our users to easily input payroll and expense data themselves, and it gets automatically sent for manager approval—no more paper or manual routing,” Güsmer says.
With Nintex, UCC dramatically improved payroll and expense reporting efficiency. Automated payroll paperwork ensures that hourly employees quickly get paid and reimbursed. Says Güsmer happily, “Today, our HR and accounting administrators can spend more time on business-critical activities, rather than chasing paperwork!” And because the archived payroll documentation is now stored in SharePoint, it’s easy for them to locate and access whenever they need it.
Our processes were long overdue for an upgrade, and we needed to make sure that the solution we chose would fix the problem quickly. Nintex is both cost-effective and scalable to adapt to our needs in the future."
