Invoices for monthly telephone services have changed from paper to an electronic format, a move that means quicker access to billing information and significant paper conservation.
Glenn Hollinger, manager of communications and network services with Information Technology Services (ITS), said the change eliminates the need to print 50,000 invoice pages every year and that billing information will typically be available to departments two business days after month end instead of five. E-invoices will be accessible electronically for a period of 7 years, he said, reducing the need to store paper.
Telephone e-invoices for August were made available Sept. 1. Hollinger said that after September, print invoices will only be sent to people who do not have access to UniFi or who require paper invoices for other business reasons.
The e-invoices are available in “FAST Queries” in Self-Service UniFi, accessible through the University’s PAWS portal.
