IFAS-OneSolution



Subject: OneSolution Upgrade (New IFAS)   

        
We are currently in the initial phases of the project, with the main effort in redesigning the Chart of  Accounts for both Research Foundation and University Foundation accounts.  With the new updated structures we anticipate better reporting, new inquiry functions and enhanced user security.

Current CDD reports will be updated, and the addition of Cognos, a tier 1 reporting tool we will be providing additional reporting capabilities.  Cognos will also allow us compatibility with the campus, as Cognos is also a tool in the campus environment.  Sharing data in the campus data warehouse is also planned.

In addition to new reporting capabilities, several enhancements to the software will allow us to reevaluate current procedures and requirements.  With the addition of workflow approvals, enhanced purchasing and encumbrance functions, processes should improve.

User involvement is critical to the process.  Your opinions are very important to us in this design phase.

We have created a user roundtable that meets twice a month for users to discuss what their issues are, share opinions, offer advice and hear what some of the new system features are.  And if your schedule won’t allow you or any of your staff to attend, I’d be more than happy to visit your office or make other arrangements.

We are also creating a OneSolution User group in Office365.  We anticipate using this site for upgrade news, documentation, training and help, open conversations and more.

We anticipate end user training to start in January.
