Customizing Review Processes
An application system that is flexible and works nice with others removes headaches for reviewers
The goal of any application process is to find the most deserving applicant. How your organization goes about that, on the other hand, is likely completely different than any other organization. There may be similar structures and similar goals, but internally things vary.
The application itself serves as a base to understand the applicants, but the review process is where you find that deserving applicant and frankly, where you spend a much larger amount of time.
Whether you are using some form of PDF submission or utilize an online form, organizations without the right tools struggle to track progress. These struggles also affect your ability to communicate effectively and stay organized.
You don’t need a tool that changes the way you operate. You need an application management system that improves the way you operate.
A Tailored Solution
Out-of-the-box solutions offer an application system with limited options. Custom solutions offer unlimited options but often carry a large price tag.
Orchestrate is what we call a tailored solution. We’ve created an established application framework to optimize each application with the ability to structure review processes however necessary.
In a recent study of our client, Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E), we noted a complex review process.
PG&E has nine Employee Resource Groups (ERG) that last year provided 200 scholarships ranging from $1,000-$10,000. Each of those resource groups has the same application with the ability to apply for as many scholarships as applicable.
While the application is the same, each resource group has a different review process. Each organization differs on the number of reviewers, cycles, and has a different scoring system to review each application. With Orchestrate, PG&E is able to retain each ERG’s unique review process and keep the applications organized at the same time.
