3 Legacy processes Paper invoices routed via messenger A/P batched nightly to generate warrants Paper travel authorization Paper travel claims for most agencies Three agencies used an electronic claim system No A/R system Limited grant accounting system No facilities management system Mainframe processing

4 Legacy processes, cont Individual systems worked in silos Systems were highly customized Systems that were replaced were extremely old and not supported anymore

5 The new view Leadership wanted a new platform that would enable better analysis, support improved business processes and leverage technology That translated into imaging, workflow and employee self-service on a web-based architecture, including the following modules:

14 Project timeline Both HCM and FSCM projects would begin on 4/06 HCM went live Oct 2008 FSCM went live in waves beginning Jan 2009 and ending Oct 2009

15 Difficulties in implementation Change management Protracted conversion Keeping two accounting systems going stretched limited resources and added a confusion factor to reporting and transaction processing

16 Results of those difficulties Delayed CAFR preparation Increased the opportunity for error in analysis Criticism Lost sight of the technological improvements

17 Implementation realities Electronic pay stubs Web-based system used remotely 24/7 Streamlined W2 processing Imaging has improved document retrieval and reduced physical storage needs More recording of accounting events when they occur due to the A/R module Quicker and more efficient travel reimbursement Use of employee id in place of SSN

18 Implementation realities, cont. Supplier portal reduces phone call inquiries Employee self-service allows employees the convenience of making certain changes on their own Provided an infrastructure for new ways of making procurement processing efficiencies Provided the framework for improving the management of state facilities Provided the framework for better grants management information Provided better control over cashiering activities

19 Implementation realities, cont. Provided framework for better analytics because more information is captured on more transactions Provided a better audit trail for each transaction
