Consolidated Financial View

EIS worked in close collaboration with Billing & Payment Services and the CalCentral portal team to create a more understandable view of financial account information for students. How did we do this? We created an API that accesses Campus Accounts Receivable System (CARS) data, transforms and enriches it, and makes it available through a secure interface to the CalCentral application, where it is displayed in a user-friendly manner on the "MyFinances" page. The benefits of this integration include better service directly to students by de-mystifying their financial accounts and reduced traffic at in-person assistance functions at Billing & Payment Services and Cal Student Central.
