We have a winner! UMB’s new financial system will be known as Quantum Financials. The name was submitted by Chiradeep Mukherjee, enterprise wide application specialist in administration and finance.
Chiradeep’s entry also included a tag line, which inspired the contest team to create one for the new name as well: Quantum Financials | A leap forward. Transforming systems. Empowering people!
Dawn Rhodes, CFBO and VP, commented that she likes the image of “leaping forward” with the new system. She continued, “Enhancing and improving UMB’s financial tools and reporting capabilities is one of the primary goals of this project. While development details and tactical project plans are still being finalized, one thing is certain. Many of you will be asked to become involved in the project as we further define, configure, test and deliver Quantum Financials.”
Thanks again to the hundreds of you who participated by submitting an entry and by voting for your favorite. We’ll keep you posted here and other places as we announce more ways to stay involved with this initiative.
