There are a number of different reporting tools currently available to enable staff to extract and analyse financial information from UFS:
|UFS||Standard reports and online enquiries run directly within UFS that generally provide "real-time" data. If desired some of which can also be exportable to Excel if further analysis required.|
|Cognos||Admin Reporting provides a secure web-based reporting service to the University using the Cognos tool. The information provided complements those reports already available from the applications such as UFS, CamSIS and CHRIS and provide the facility to empower users to interrogate data to generate reports for themselves. Data is as per the previous night.|
|Discoverer||Oracle Discoverer 10g is an ad-hoc query, reporting and analysis tool that allows users to gain access to information from UFS Live. It differs from other UFS enquiry and reporting options because it allows more bespoke query definitions across multiple departments (for users with multi-department access rights) on real time data.||Click here for information|
