Federal and state resources are decreasing but the mission to serve students stays constant. More than ever, institutions need to maximize their resources in order to thrive. For the finance department, this means managing funds, assets, and endowments as effectively as possible while creating and administering equitable budgets across the institution. At the same time, you must comply with shifting policy demands. All these priorities compete for your attention. Banner® Finance supports your efforts by placing information at your fingertips for sound decision making. It provides real-time access to the data you need: from procurement to accounts payable to sponsored research to endowment management. Configurable finance channels provide everyone across the finance office with information specific to their jobs, whether that need is planning and budgeting, general accounting, payroll, endowment management, or reporting and compliance.
