Over the last several years, the number of systems managed by Finance has increased and therefore the volume of questions and requests coming into Finance has been multiplied . In order to better track the action and resolution of requests and questions coming into Finance, several RT queues have been set up to help us manage the work. These queues are now live and in use.
In the memo issued back in late June, it was noted that there would be several steps to go through to enable the deployment of reporting.
The first step, finalization of the year end financial statements and audit, has been completed. Those figures are now being used in the second step, which is the mapping of those final balances into entries to migrate them into Unit4.
We are now officially one month to go-live with the new Unit4 system. We have had a number of early adopters participate in training on customers and customer invoices as well as requisitioning in the system. Many have commented how easy it seems to be, and in some cases, easier and less complex than current spreadsheet methods.
Now that we're in the home stretch, we'd like to share a bit of what we expect our world will look like come May 1st:
If you attended one of the Open House sessions held in early December, you should have received a preliminary high-level understanding of some of the business process changes that we hope to implement with the new system. Recordings are up on SharePoint if you missed them.
