USDA Agricultural Research Service
Creative developed the Cloud technology based Work Request Tracking application for Agricultural Research Services (ARS) Administrative and Financial Management (AFM) Division. Creative worked with AFM leadership to review the business processes and recommended the approach to change the routing of these work requests from individuals to a group of specialists. It reduced over 1500 routing rules to less than 50 queues that are now monitored by the functional area specialists. We developed the solution using Salesforce.com to manage 100+ work request types/cases.
