We are pleased to announce that an effort is underway to make the Travel Reimbursement process more intuitive, efficient, and effective. A Customer Advisory Group (CAG), made up of faculty and staff representatives from the three universities and system offices, has been instrumental in helping us choose a technology solution that will increase usability, add functionality, improve security, reduce transaction time, and overall improve the travel reimbursement experience for users across the University of Illinois System community.
A contract has been signed with Chrome River for a new software solution that will replace TEM. A project core team, dedicated steering team, and work groups kicked-off the fact-finding project phase in February.
Configuration, testing and development “sprints” are estimated to take 8-10 months, followed by a roll-out plan currently under development. This timeline is provisional and subject to the delivery of the best possible technology for our users.
We will keep you updated as the project proceeds and estimated timelines are confirmed. The project core team is dedicated to continuous improvement during and after implementation. Keeping you well-informed is a vital part of that commitment.
You are encouraged to stay updated by regularly checking the Source2Pay (S2P) website at https://www.obfs.uillinois.edu/source2pay/
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this initiative, please feel free to reach out to the members of the project management or change management teams: Mike Szabo (email@example.com), Cathy Young (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Filip Przybysz (email@example.com).
