The University of Alberta (UA) went live today with a major upgrade and expansion of their GT solutions. One of the early implementers of ePAF™, UA migrated ePAF™ from where it was hosted in their Financials system to HCM, and completely retooled the solution for GT eForms™ 2.8. With the help of a joint Sierra Systems-GT team, UA expanded ePAF™ to service the student population, in addition to the Academic and Staff populations that were already automated.
The project also saw the development of eForm solutions to manage delegation of both paper signing authority and eForm signing authority. The paper signing authority eForm allows signatories to delegate signing authority for certain documents for a set time, and integrates with a graphical signature database. An auditor or other authorized party who wants to check the validity of a signed document can query on the form type, department and date, and be shown the list of physical signature graphics for authorized signatories, which they can compare against the signature on the paper.
