How Saïd Foundation

reduced 20% of its processing time

The Challenge

Manual Applications

In the past, applicants had to download a PDF application, complete it manually and submit it in person through a local representative. Applications would include essays, transcripts, and letters of recommendation: all of which needed to be printed out, bundled and filed for each member of the review committee.

Collection and Review

Collecting and reviewing materials from each applicant was time-consuming and complex and the staff struggled to process applications quickly. The Saïd Foundation knew that in order to maintain and increase the quality of its scholars, the staff needed a tool that would allow them to accept, review and analyze applications easily and online.

The Solution

The staff needed a tool that would allow them to accept, review and analyse applications easily and online.

Full Fabric helped us digitalize the whole admission process which not only improved the applicant experience but also made the review and selection process a lot easier.

Increase in Applications

The Saïd Foundation decided to digitize and automate the entire application process to allow prospects to complete their application and upload all the required documentation online.


Reduction in Processing Time

Admission officers can now automate the capture and routing of applications to facilitate faster and more effective decisions. The system assigns each application to different team members, allowing reviewers to evaluate critical components of the application and enter their comments and ratings on the same screen.


Paperless Process

This allows for parallel review methods in which applicants can be reviewed by different evaluators at the same time, saving the institution valuable time and resources and facilitating a swifter decision making process.
