A reliable set of administrative support systems is essential for the smooth running of such a complex organisation as Utrecht University.
We make sure that all departments have up-to-date systems that meet their specific needs, and are compliant with national and international laws and regulations.
For instance, the university is legally obliged to keep records of chemical products, such as radio-active materials: where they are stored and in which quantities. We provide the faculties with tools to keep a clear administration of these chemicals.
Finance and Human Resources also have several specialised SAP tools at their disposal to manage their data and generate the necessary reports that help them to make sound decisions. And these are just a couple of examples.
We also continuously look for ways to make our systems more efficient and user friendly. Recently, we successfully implemented a new self-service HR portal in which employees can easily manage their days off. This also gives managers more insight into the HR administration of their employees.
