Aptos Login Pages
Please note that Aptos may only be accessed by trained users who have been allocated a password. The system is used by Finance staff and also by nominated users in other departments (mainly for placing purchase orders, raising sales invoices and processing journals).
Obtaining an Aptos Account
To obtain an Aptos account an authorised person within your School/Unit (usually the Head of School or Director of Unit) should send an email detailing the name and university user ID of the person requiring access along with a note of what permissions should be granted - it is acceptable to say "please grant x the same access as y".
- If the new user requires POM access, then the authorised person should email email@example.com. As part of this process, the Procurement team will review existing users in the School/Unit to determine if a new account is needed.
- If no POM access is required, then the authorised person should email the request to firstname.lastname@example.org
- If your role changes and your access needs to be amended (or your account closed) your Head of School or Director of Unit should send these details to email@example.com as well.
When your account is created you will also be added to the aptos-users mlist which is used to notify users of any planned outages and other important information. You will be removed from this list if your Aptos account is closed. For POM users, you will be required to attend the appropriate training courses before a username and password is issued. The Procurement team will be in contact with the user after creation of the account to advise of the dates of available training courses. The Procurement Buyer Network: Events / Training Programme (PDF, 424 KB) is available for viewing and course places are bookable via PDMS.
Users should access core Aptos via the Uniface Anywhere Client which can be downloaded from the following links:
Client for PC: Uniface Anywhere 4.8 for Windows (EXE, 11,280 KB)
Client for MAC: Uniface Anywhere 4.8 for MacOS X (dmg, 2,408 KB)
If you are prompted for a server / host address - this is aptos-app01.st-andrews.ac.uk.
The IT Service desk should be able to assist is you are having problems with the installation. Note that when connecting to core Aptos, you will be presented with a logon box which will read 'logon to aptos-JTi01' or 'logon to aptos-JTi02'. At this prompt, you should enter your university user id and your email password. (anyone unable to logon with their university password should contact the IT Service desk directly)
