FINANCE

The Finance and Technology teams have been working hard on implementing a new financial system for over a year. We are pleased to announce that Workday Financials will be going live effective on July 1, 2017!  

What does this mean? In simple terms, it means that all of your financial transactions such as purchase orders, invoices, travel expenses, journal entries, budget reports, etc., will be processed using the new system. One of the best features of this new system will be the elimination of paper and an automated workflow for submission and approvals of financial transactions!

The training for the Simmons community will be critical to the success of this new system. To that end we have developed several different types of training:

  1. Videos that you can watch at any time.
  2. In-person presentations scheduled from May 23, 2017 to September 30,2017 (sign up is required)
  3. Training materials

In addition, the Finance team will be holding Drop-in hours from July 5, 2017 to September 30, 2017, where you will receive answers to your specific questions. At the Drop-in sessions, you will be able to log into the system and receive personalized assistance in processing your transaction.
