PantherSoft Financials 

PantherSoft Financials is FIU’s system for conducting all of its financial operations related to purchasing goods and services, employee travel and expense reimbursement, vendor payments, financial and managerial reporting, budgeting, grants financial administration, and asset management.

All employees initially have access to this system once they are employed by the university and have been setup within the ADP HR\Payroll system. Their username will be the employee’s PantherID and their initial password will be their birth date. If you are locked-out of the system you will need to contact the UTS Support Center at 305-348-2284 to be unlocked. 

CLICK HERE TO ACCESS>> PeopleSoft - Production

In order to produce reports and run queries we have created a separate environment for better performance. The data contained in the Reporting environment is refreshed daily from the Production environment with the previous day’s transactions. 

CLICK HERE TO ACCESS>> PeopleSoft - Reporting

Initial access to PantherSoft Financials is limited to Employee Self-Service and Manager Self-Service functions which allow employees to enter Travel and Expense Reimbursement transactions and for managers to approve those transactions. Additionally there are some querying and reporting capabilities. In order to be granted additional access such as to create Requisitions and Initiate or Approve Budget Transfers an Access Request Form must be submitted.
