Workday: PTAO to FDM Transition
At Printing and Copying Services, we are trying to make the transition from PTAO’s to FDM’s as easy as possible for our customers and will be following the University’s planned conversion methodology and using the UVAFST Mapping Output PTAO to FDM Conversion Results as the source tool to identify the new Workday FDM Worktag string to convert the PTAO on open jobs in house (not billed as of May 31) to the applicable FDM. We’re happy to use an alternate FDM if provided. Jobs not already in hand will require an FDM.
Starting July 3, Printing and Copying Services will join other University Internal Service Providers in asking that orders submitted be accompanied by a PDF copy of the FDM Validator showing the Worktags to be used for billing job charges so that we may take advantage of the barcode generated by the FDM Validator. Over the next year, we are planning to move the rest of our order process to an online storefront which will work with the live validator interface and make the order process very easy (our customer service reps will still be available to assist in any way we can!).
OPEN AND READY TO SERVE DURING COVID CRISIS
The Coronavirus (COVID-19) is impacting all aspects of our daily lives. PCS is taking every precaution to protect our employees, customers, partners, and the communities we all live in to be healthy and safe.
At PCS we are emphasizing the importance of following the guidelines and recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) for reducing the spread of COVID-19. This includes:
• Providing all staff with information about the basic steps to reduce spreading the virus, including hand washing and social distancing as referenced by the CDC.
• Sanitizing and disinfecting our facilities and equipment, including all copiers when on-site.
PCS is focused on providing the high quality service you expect in a clean and safe manner. Should you feel the need to clean your office equipment, we recommend cleaning the outside covers with a non-static lint free cloth. A disinfectant can be used, but DO NOT spray directly on the device’s surfaces or components, as getting liquid inside the device can damage the internal components. If using an aerosol, move away from the device and only spray on the cloth.
At this time our main facility located at 2474 Old Ivy Road will remain open as will our copy center in the hospital. The PCS Help Desk and our service and supply team are still operating as normal to keep your office equipment fully operational. Our service and supply vendors do not anticipate significant disruptions to the supply chain in the short-term and are working on a longer term plan to minimize potential delays in the coming months.
PCS values and appreciates your understanding and continued support during this time.
