SOLIS Version 1.06b - Posted Monday, 11/25/13

The SOLIS Version 1.06b Post Payment update is complete and the system is now available to all users.

The new version includes the following improvements:

  • Invoice and Voucher Creation - Accounting will now approve invoices in SOLIS and then transmit that information to FAMIS automatically to initiate the payment process. After invoice approval, accounting is prompted to enter in their FAMIS credentials and create the voucher in SOLIS. The voucher will then post in FAMIS. This reduces double data entry and makes accounting's approval processing time more efficient. The result is that invoices move faster and vendors have the ability to submit their next invoice sooner.

If you have any questions, please donít hesitate to contact the SOLIS Help Desk at 551-4550. Thank you!

SOLIS Version 1.06 - Posted Wednesday, 7/10/13

The SOLIS Version 1.06 update is complete and the system is now available to all users.

The new version includes the following improvements:

  • Construction Retention Functionality - The Construction Retention functionality has been revamped. Expect a user-friendly interface and a process that is more in line with the City's retention policies.

    Refer to these User Quick Guides for assistance:
  • Vendor Email Notifications - The prime vendor and all subvendors will receive an email notification whenever the prime vendor submits an invoice. The notification will list all the subvendors included on the invoice and their respective charges. This will help subvendors to track the progress of their payments.
  • CMD/HRC Page Updates - Additional columns were added to the Contract Vendor tab to help track more detailed HRC information.
  • Adding Consultant Staff - The invoice window where vendors add Professional Services staff consultants has been expanded. The page will now allow vendors to choose from a display of 50 consultants. This will reduce the time it takes to add staff to invoices.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the SOLIS Help Desk. Thank you!
