Working with as many schools as we do, I tend to find patterns in things that schools ask for or need. One thing I commonly hear from administrators is a desire to leave all the paper behind regarding their internal processes.

Schools are trying to cut down the amount of paper they use and have to track, and they also want to make it easier for their staff and faculty to fill out the forms.
