An Insider's view of Amherst

Kate

Vice President, Capital Management

What projects are you most excited about?

One of the coolest projects I worked on was the automation and integration of the Concur, Yardi, and Workday systems. Before, employees followed a very time-consuming process for filing expense reports. Integrating these systems simplified the process and saved the Company time and money. It was great to share that news with my fellow team members.
