Navigator Management Partners and VivanTech Team Selected to Assist in Implementation of Kuali Financial System at the University of Maryland

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Oct. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In a competitive talent solicitation, the team of Navigator Management Partners and VivanTech were awarded the contract to support the University of Maryland in its implementation of the Kuali Financial System (KFS), it was announced today. In partnership with the University of Maryland, the Navigator Management Partners and VivanTech group will manage the University's migration from their current Financial Record System (FRS) to KFS.  This implementation project is set for completion Aug. 1, 2013.

Replacing the University's FRS system that has been in use for 12 years requires a suite of applications that is agile and adaptive to changes in business practices and organizational hierarchies of higher education institutions. The KFS suite of applications uniquely fills these requirements due to its higher-education origins. The University will use KFS's comprehensive General Ledger/Financial Processing, Purchasing/Accounts Payable and Capital Assets open-source applications and web-based documents to achieve its objective, seamlessly replacing and improving upon the functionality currently residing in their FRS application.

The Kuali Foundation, of which Navigator Management Partners and VivanTech are commercial affiliates, is a thriving cooperative of institutions of higher learning and commercial firms that collaborate with other Kuali Foundation members in building and sustaining open-source administrative software for higher education. KFS is currently in operation at 14 universities, including Indiana University, the University of Arizona, the University of Connecticut, Haverford College, the University of Hawaii, Colorado State University and Cornell University. 

Engaging professionals on continuous improvement and innovation within a modular environment, the University of Maryland joins a long list of universities that are choosing license-free, community source enterprise software designed by universities, for universities.
