Mary - Director of Accounting, Nora - Data Specialist, UNL
The University of Nebraska’s SAP financial management system and Data Warehouse offer useful tools to provide customized reporting. Mary and Nora saw this potential and took on the challenge of developing a more helpful financial information system to serve the deans on the UNL campus.
With valuable assistance from the Data Warehouse team and the UNL computing services staff, Mary and Nora developed and pilot-tested a prototype Dean’s Report this past summer. The reporting system is now fully operational and provides a quick, easily read summary of each college’s resources by department and major fund source via email.
Responses from the deans’ offices have been overwhelmingly positive, noting particularly the new system’s responsiveness to their need for timely, accurate information.
