Coinciding with its “Value Chain Summit,” Oracle announced the release of a new SaaS designed for supply chain managers reliant on mobile devices.

According to spokesmen, this advance provides a “simplified user experience” for its PeopleSoft Financials and PeopleSoft Supply Chain Management within PeopleSoft 9.2 Update Image 10.

The new release aims to help companies and organizations take advantage of modern mobile technologies. As such, the PeopleSoft Fluid User Interface included in PeopleSoft 9.2 Update Image 10 provides an intuitive and responsive user experience that is optimized across multiple platforms including smartphones, tablets, and laptops.

Supply chain managers offered testimonials last week, praising the release.

“Here at Kansas City Power & Light, we are looking to expand our mobile capabilities in the future,” said Eddy Halter, director of procurement, Kansas City Power & Light. “Being able to create, review, and approve transactions sourced from PeopleSoft via a smartphone or tablet would definitely be a benefit for our organization.”

Bill Gibbard, managing director, Cardinal Point Solutions, said his company is “excited” about the new features.

He noted that PeopleSoft Financials 9.2 Update Image 10 will enable the mobile workforce and improve the user experience, “particularly enhancements that harness the power of the PeopleSoft Fluid User Interface technology, like the project manager home page.”

Additional capabilities available in the latest update for PeopleSoft Financials and PeopleSoft Supply Chain Management solutions include:

· WorkCenters: Expansion of PeopleSoft’s WorkCenter framework continues across the PeopleSoft service, including newly introduced WorkCenters for expenses, resource management, and more.
· Supplier 360-degree view: Users can now access a single page from which they can see information about a supplier needed to address tactical and strategic business issues and challenges. Users can personalize and share reports via the new PeopleSoft Configurable Analysis framework.
· Supplier collaboration: A comprehensive supplier portal offers suppliers a centralized portal from which they can access key information in PeopleSoft financial and procurement applications.
