CU I&E Submission Highlights Paperless Process
We see a lot of interest in paperless financial processing. You tell us you want more of it.
So that means you'll want to check out the Electronic Coding Process developed by Boulder's Amy Cole last year. She figured out a way to save hours of staff time and improve Finance System accuracy by redesigning the Journal Entry batch invoice process for the campus UMC (University Memorial Center).
Amy's approach improves efficiency by standardizing coding, eliminating errors due to handwritten notes, and speeding reconciliation after month-end close. Many thanks to the UMC's Peggy Tucker Ortega for sharing this with the CU Innovation & Efficiency (CU I&E) Awards Program!
To learn about another paperless process improvement: the Electronic Expense Filing System submission is one of the most visited webpages on the CU I&E site ... and is also a popular Continuing Professional Education course (Paperless Financial Reconciliation).
If you've developed an efficient process of your own (paperless or not), share it with us now! The 2018 CU Innovation & Efficiency Awards Program is open for submissions through February 28. Your ingenuity may win you a cash prize of up to $1,500 (subject to taxes and withholding).
CU I&E is a University-wide recognition program that highlights the ways employees help their departments work better. To be part of it all:
