This year’s Oracle Open World starts Sunday, September 18th. PeopleSoft Procurement (Supplier Relationship Management) sessions at this year’s conference will focus on CPO’s current top priorities for delivering value: leveraging technology effectively, enforcing contract compliance and improving supplier performance.
CPO’s are focused on leveraging technology effectively. And this is one reason why they are interested in PeopleSoft Fluid User Interface. Many of the trends we have seen over the decade converge on three main areas – simpler and more intuitive usability, ability to configure apps without having to customize them and the extension of the enterprise through the use of mobile devices. With PeopleSoft’s new Fluid user interface, we focus on all three of these areas and customers are starting to see the unique benefits of this approach. On Tuesday morning, Procurement strategy will participate in the panel discussion “Practical Recommendations for Using PeopleSoft Fluid User Interface with PeopleSoft ERP” to provide guidance on how organizations can get started with Fluid, even for non-mobile users. Then on Wednesday afternoon, session “PeopleSoft Procurement – A Responsive, Mobile and Configurable User Experience” will focus on all of the important areas of Fluid and show how we can now request, approve and receive items all from a mobile device with a simple, clean, intuitive interface and the ability to completely configure how each app looks and behaves.
On Wednesday afternoon, NYU Langone Medical Center will share how they actually implemented Fluid User Interface in their session “Go with the Flow with the New PeopleSoft Mobile Inventory Application“. This session will cover the latest Fluid enhancements to Oracle’s PeopleSoft Mobile Inventory Management solution. You will see how this customer leverages the inventory and inbound logistics functionality in its PeopleSoft Mobile Inventory Management implementation. Using leading-edge mobile Apple devices and scanning sleds, it has enabled a mobile workforce to improve proficiency, reduce errors, and streamline operations.
When it comes to enforcing contract compliance, PeopleSoft Procurement has recently delivered new and intuitive capabilities that greatly help organizations create and manage contracts. Thursday afternoon’s session “Hit Maverick Spend and Manage the Contract Lifecycle with PeopleSoft Procurement” covers both the financial and legal aspects of procurement contracts, and how they integrate seamlessly with the procure-to-pay business process. New and planned features in the areas of group contracts, analytics, and enhanced integration with eProcurement will be covered. Whether you are new to contracts in procurement or are seasoned expert, this session is for you.
In an effort to cut costs, alleviate risk and improve processes, more and more organizations are placing greater emphasis on improving supplier relationships. PeopleSoft Supplier Lifecycle Management provides supplier onboarding and supplier change requests to improve data management and automatically enforce compliance, supplier watch list and simplified analytics to proactively monitor suppliers, and 360 degree views of all supplier related activities. Thursday morning’s session “Improve Vendor Management with PeopleSoft Supplier Lifecycle Management” will cover how to leverage these tools for maximum benefit, and you will learn about PeopleSoft’s plans for managing supplier performance and diversity information.
