The OneUniversity Finance training environment has been updated and is now live. Based on feedback we’ve received at our training sessions, we’ve added transactional and budget data to reflect the information which will be available once the system is live. This means that the training environment will be as similar to the live system as possible.
Stuart Moorhouse, Business Transformation project manager, said: “It’s a major milestone for the Programme and for our teams in the Schools and Directorates which is reflective of the hard work and effort which has gone into it. The new training environment provides a great opportunity for staff to find out how the system works and get hands-on experience using real data”.
Why have we launched a training environment?
The main benefit of having the training system available before the live system is launched is the opportunity for staff to practice their day-to-day activities in a safe and secure environment. This means staff can ‘hit the ground running’ on tasks when OneUniversity Finance is live.
What data / configuration is available?
All user profiles and roles as well as transactional data for the 2017/2018 financial year plus periods 1-5 for the 2018/2019 financial year. A selection of reports, workflows, processes, budgets, forecasting and year-end balances will all be available.
Where to access the system and get support
Our Knowledge Base has a comprehensive list of Q&As. We also have training materials on Blackboard and in the all-staff folder in Box. Further training on the new system will be scheduled and communicated through our usual channels including the Business Transformation website.
We’ll continue to keep you updated on any issues or news relating to the training environment and our business-readiness activities as we move forward with the Programme. We’d welcome any feedback, suggestions or queries you may have. Please email the BT team.
