Box Hill Institute is one of Victoria's leading vocational education providers. Located in Melbourne, its four separate campuses teach approximately 35,000 students each year. The process for accrediting new courses with the Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority was highly complex and subject to stringent regulation. To complete this process, the institute used hand-written forms that were forwarded through numerous departments via internal mail. However, this was slow, difficult to track and created uncertainty around whether new courses would be approved on time. In 2009, the institute deployed Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, with electronic forms designed in InfoPath Form Services directed automatically to staff according to predetermined workflows.
