Business Situation

Uncommon Schools had an immediate need to improve their Technology Budget process. The IT department searched for a platform that easily connected to a SQL database without a lot of coding. frevvo's world class Client Services team helped them install and configure frevvo and the database connector and their IT department took it from there.

Solution Summary

The Uncommon Schools IT team quickly learned frevvo's unique feature of generating form controls from SQL queries. They developed, tested and deployed the Technology Budget workflow in just two months. They also chose to incorporate Single Sign On using the frevvo Azure Security Manager that works with Microsoft Azure Active Directory to make it easier for users to access workflows.


  • frevvo's ability to generate controls from a database query was instrumental in the quick development and deployment of the Technology Budget workflow.
  • frevvo's workflow vastly improved communication between departments.
