The HR (Human Resources) team at the City of Coppell, TX, was overwhelmed by manual onboarding tasks. They handled hiring through NEOGOV, but past that there was a long checklist for HR to complete: creating digital files, storing applications, running background checks, completing endless forms, notifying IT and other departments.
But they were facing a talent shortage economy, and they didn’t want to frustrate new hires with a clunky onboarding process.
Assistant Director of Enterprise Solutions Josh Litrell and Systems Administrator Vineela Mandapati suspected that this, like many of their bottlenecks, could be solved with Laserfiche. This extensible Content Services Platform (CSP) does more than just manage records. It acts as the backbone of the City’s IT operations—connecting platforms, automating processes, and streamlining workflows in their Public Safety, Library, Internal Services, Finance, and other departments.
They approached MCCi, their Laserfiche solution provider, to explore options. Together, they decided to integrate Laserfiche with two NEOGOV modules, Insight and Onboard, and automate as much of the onboarding process as possible using Workflows.

In addition to NEOGOV, Coppell also implemented OneSpan Sign. This allows documents to be signed online and stored in Laserfiche rather than having to be printed, signed in person, and scanned.
