The users in Monterey County and its districts are still hard at work preparing to go live in July. This month, they have been working on payroll compares, 2013 budgets, and setting up their workflow for requisition approvals. One of my favorite parts of this process is witnessing the excitement over the exciting new features that they will be able to use in Escape. One such exciting feature is the requisition approval process. Districts implementing Escape will be going from a paper requisition that goes from one desk through the other, via district mail, to an electronic approval process that allows for faster processing, and increased visibility. All users that have access to a particular requisition can see the status of all the approvals – including those that still need to be done. Approvers can review the requisition online, including the electronic attachments, and easily decide to approve, deny, or even add a new approver to this requisition. All with just a few keystrokes.
