“Our partnership with Dolphin allows us to leverage our existing SAP investment with an easy to use, tailored Accounts Payable solution that provides enterprise-wide visibility and most importantly, a significant cost savings for the university.”

Dolphin Enterprise Solutions Corporation (Dolphin), an SAP partner and provider of solutions in support of SAP® software, congratulates the internationally-renowned University of Toronto’s Facilities and Services Department for receiving a Canadian Association of University Business Officers (CAUBO) Quality and Productivity Honorable Mention Award. The CAUBO Quality and Productivity Award recognizes and shares achievements in higher education with administrators across Canada.

University of Toronto partnered with Dolphin in 2014 to standardize its accounts payable process using Dolphin’s end-to-end Process Tracking System (PTS). The partnership has yielded a superior return on investment for the Facilities and Services Department since going live with its invoice workflow solution.

Specific measurable results of the project include:

  •     Total cost savings of over $200K each year
  •     Complete transparency into invoices, providing individuals and departments a detailed breakdown of spending to support accountability and audit capabilities
  •     Shortened vendor payment cycles which prevent late payment penalties and help obtain discounts
  •     Online processing eliminates duplicating efforts, freeing employees to concentrate on more high-value tasks
  •     Removal of 80K sheets of paper from the accounts payable process, saving money, and reducing office and storage space while being more environmentally conscious

“We are truly honored to receive a CAUBO Award recognizing the success of our fully optimized Accounts Payable Solution,” said Darrel Fernandopulle, Director of Financial Services at University of Toronto’s Facilities and Services Department. “Our partnership with Dolphin allows us to leverage our existing SAP investment with an easy to use, tailored Accounts Payable solution that provides enterprise-wide visibility and most importantly, a significant cost savings for the university.”
