One Year of Finance, HR & Payroll in ConnectCarolina

In October 2015, UNC-Chapel Hill marked the one-year anniversary of ConnectCarolina for Finance and HR/Payroll. Since the go-live of student administration applications in 2008-2010 and of Finance and Human Resources applications in October 2014, the Enterprise Applications team – in partnership with Office of the Registrar, Undergraduate Admissions, the Graduate School, Financial Aid, Student Financials, the Division of Workforce Strategy, Equity and Engagement, the Division of Finance and Administration, General Administration, ITS Infrastructure & Operations, User Support & Engagement, and Information Security – have worked hard to improve ConnectCarolina.

Some functions have worked well since implementation – just about everyone got paid on time and correctly. Other functions have been reconfigured to better serve campus needs. For example, the team rolled out the Payroll Accounting Adjustment Tool (PAAT) in October 2015 to facilitate corrections to payroll accounting costs.

ConnectCarolina improvements are expected to continue for the foreseeable future.

Just as the legacy payroll system improved over its 46 years of use and the financial transactional system, FRS, was enhanced over its 26 years, ConnectCarolina improvements are expected to continue for the foreseeable future.

Over the course of seven to nine years, ConnectCarolina’s Student Administration applications reached a level of routine efficiency, freeing staff to implement new functionality to support student success (Thrive@Carolina improvements) and a new admissions system for the Graduate School and Kenan-Flagler Business School. On an ongoing basis, we can expect more efficiencies and new functionality to be offered in ConnectCarolina’s Finance and Human Resources applications as well.
