Sudbury, MA (PRWEB) March 21, 2013
ScerIS, Inc. today announced the creation and kickoff of Project Endeavor, a corporate social responsibility created to honor the 20th anniversary of the company’s founding. The program is expected to have a broad and hugely beneficial effect on the financial health and global competitiveness of American businesses and the skill level of its employees. CEO Jim Walckner announced the program’s creation which grants almost $28,000 in ScerIS Software licenses for $1.00, enabling companies to deploy the extensible Work Process Systems (WPS) platform for multiple purposes across the enterprise. ScerIS WPS allows for the use of electronic forms and workflows, replacing paper and manual processes for any reason, reducing the cost of the process and providing a bridge between ERP systems, business processes and the people who use them.
“WPS can eliminate the use of silo systems for time and attendance, payroll, contracts management, purchasing, receiving, human resources or any other orphan system or paper form in companies, and standardize the platform for communicating both internally and externally while integrating with any ERP or financial system in American businesses,” says Walckner.
“The elimination of paper forms cost and maintenance and support costs for multiple systems returns that value to the bottom line of companies using WPS,” said ScerIS Division President and Project Endeavor Program Director, Dan Furbush. “The uses of WPS are only limited by the imagination of its users and to that end we intend to create a virtual user community where people can share and suggest uses for WPS. That community will also contribute to the sustainability aspect of WPS by their input, extending the value not only commercially with business competitiveness but environmentally as well.”
A recent survey indicated that the cost of paper forms and manual processes in organizations can be as high as $75 per form when the labor to process them is factored into the cost of use. Electronic forms and workflow processes reduce that cost to under $2.00 per use and the cost savings accrue as more processes are transitioned from paper to electronic workflows.
Project Endeavor was born from discussions about how the United States had fallen from first to seventh in global competitiveness* from 2007 to 2012 and about how to improve business profitability as companies suffered downturns caused by recession, terrorism and other factors typically outside of the control of businesses. This corporate social responsibility initiative focuses on the desire to have a more universal effect on all companies and to provide the productivity platform tools that will help companies improve their global competitiveness through cost reduction and increased productivity. Companies can enroll in Project Endeavor in order to exercise the software offer by contacting ScerIS or going to http://www.sceris.com/project-endeavor/. Software maintenance, training and support services are also components of Project Endeavor with resources available to augment implementation, design or development staff for interested companies.
