Kuali is a Malaysian term for a wok, a versatile cooking tool used for a variety of cooking styles. Likewise, the Kuali Financial System (KFS) can be used to perform a variety of transactions, from Purchasing to Accounts Payable, Capital Asset Management to Labor Distribution. KFS is based upon the same financial system from which our previous system was created, and will take our financial processing into the future.
