RAF

The Royal Air Force delivers the UK Defence Vision and aims to defend the UK and its interests, strengthen international peace and stability and be a force for good in the world.

The challenge

To build on the enormous success of TeleForm and electronic form (eForms) in analysing training feedback at RAF Cosford, Cranwell and Halton.

The solution

The training validation centre staff receive around 10,000 questionnaires a year to analyse. The training feedback form contain feedback from delegates and the RAF use the information to assess how effective their courses are. This process is manual, time consuming and labour intensive.

ePC were commissioned to update the version of TeleForm and eForms at RAF Cosford, Cranwell and Halton and implement TeleForm at five other British bases in varying configurations. The software was configured with strictly controlled Ministry of Defence computer systems.

TeleForm and eForms virtually eliminate manual data entry and increase productivity and improve accuracy.

Users can design a form, publish as HTML, PDF or as a paper document. The latter can be scanned into the TeleForm system for automatic data extraction. Data is quantified, verified and processed. The form processing software has been shown to lower the time and cost of data entry by over 90%.

The results

The products help RAF process, quantify and qualify data very quickly. Most importantly, training feedback can be analysed more efficiently.

A one-day introduction to the system and an additional day's training allowed RAF to activate the systems successfully.
