Starting July 1, 2020, we are moving from Parnassus to IC Finance Cloud. But why are we doing this and what’s in it for you?

Our current technology – Parnassus (E-Business Suite) is based on software written 30 years ago. This comes with obvious limitations and inefficiencies. Moving to the cloud will allow us to utilize a single, unified platform that facilitates synergy with IC HR Cloud while also providing capabilities that far exceed our current technologies.

In short, we can expect:

  • Mobile Friendly – do your work from any device
  • More efficient travel expense management – submit receipts via phone pics
  • One place to go - Consolidated functionality of Parnassus, BudgetPak, IC Marketplace, EZPay, and travel / expense processing in a single application
  • Streamlined accounting
  • Enhanced predictability in budgeting
  • Transparency in procurement


For more information on our decision to move to IC Finance Cloud, please see the following article by Bill Guerrero and Hayley Harris:
