Wasabi is a desktop application at the Harvard Chan School of Public Health designed to:
Maintain accounts used in transactions and payroll actions
Manage documents, approvals and budgets for Gift and Endowment accounts
Create and approve journal transactions
Create and approve payroll actions
Review financial and payroll information
Wasabi provides HCS departments with an easy-to-use front end application that interfaces with Harvard's financial, grant mangement, reporting and personnel systems.
Wasabi directly feeds and downloads from Harvard's systems, primarily the Harvard Data Warehouse (HDW). After each night's HDW update cycle, Wasabi downloads current information and updates its many data tables. The financial, grant management and personnel information in Wasabi reflects the most recent activities as of the previous night's HDW update.
