PeopleSoft Mobile Time Entry now available in FSCM

Oracle is pleased to announce the release of PeopleSoft Mobile Time Entry, part of the PeopleSoft Expenses application, which is now generally available in PeopleSoft FSCM 9.1.

PeopleSoft Mobile Time Entry provides the ability to enter time sheets quickly and easily for project-based resources on the go. The contemporary, streamlined user interface is optimized for mobile devices (that support HTML5), such as tablets and smartphones. It provides a simple-to-use tool for capturing and submitting both project-based time and non-project time, such as vacation and training. Time reporters can even adjust their timesheets for prior periods, managers can approve timesheets, and more.

Now your project resources, whether they are traveling consultants, field technicians, or anyone else booking time to projects and activities, can enter time right from their phone. Giving users the ability to record time when and where they are actually expending their effort can not only increase the accuracy of the time reports, but also accelerate the process of converting time into cash for your enterprise. The faster and more accurately time is captured, the sooner your organization can account for it and invoice for it, and that can lead to better cash flow, more up-to-date information on project progress, and better decision making.

Combining PeopleSoft Mobile Time Entry with PeopleSoft Mobile Expenses and Mobile Approvals, the PeopleSoft Mobile Applications suite expands its ability to accelerate time and expense capture and increase data accuracy. With the new Mobile capabilities, travelers can increase efficiency by recording their time and expense when they are incurred rather than waiting until arriving back home or to the office.

For more information, please watch the PeopleSoft Mobile Time Entry Video Feature Overview (VFO) available on YouTube or contact your application sales representative.

The PeopleSoft Mobile Time Entry 9.1 documentation update is available under MOS Document ID 1583166.1.

Oracle Consulting North America is now live on PeopleSoft Services Procurement and PeopleSoft Resource Management

Last month, Oracle's own internal consulting group (OCS North America) went live on PeopleSoft Services Procurement and PeopleSoft Resource Management to manage all aspects of identifying, recruiting, and deploying billable subcontractors on North America Applications customer consulting projects. The primary goals were to enhance the subcontractor staffing process, improve operational and informational processes, and improve collaboration between the Oracle NA Consulting Subcontractor Program and subcontractor suppliers.

Over 200 registered external suppliers access the tool, review open needs and competitively bid their resources to work on NA Applications projects.

This implementation highlights the usage of Oracle’s own solutions to streamline and enhance business operations, as the PeopleSoft 9.1 applications (Services Procurement and Resource Management) were deployed using Sun hardware, Oracle Enterprise Linux, and Oracle Virtual Machines.

PeopleSoft Mobile Expenses and Mobile Approvals now available in FSCM 9.1

Oracle is pleased to announce the release of two new applications, PeopleSoft Mobile Expenses and PeopleSoft Mobile Approvals, which are now generally available in PeopleSoft FSCM 9.1. These are the first two of many upcoming applications designed and built to cater directly to the mobile workforce by providing user-friendly access to key business functions on a smartphone or tablet.

Enter and Submit Expenses Anytime, Anywhere

PeopleSoft Mobile Expenses provides the ability to enter employee expense reports quickly and easily, for busy travelers on the go. The contemporary, streamlined user interface is optimized for mobile devices (that support HTML 5), such as tablets or smartphones, and provides a simple-to-use tool for capturing expenses as they are being incurred, submitting expense reports while waiting at the airport, approving your employees’ expense reports, and more. And since it is part of the PeopleSoft Mobile Applications suite, you don’t have to wait until you return home or to the office, which can lead to improved efficiencies.

The user interface and gesture actions (for example, swipe, touch, and so on) will be immediately familiar to mobile device users, and is specifically targeted to keep the experience as streamlined as possible for just the tasks you need to get to while on the go. In addition, PeopleSoft Mobile Expenses leverages all of the powerful expense policy compliance tools delivered by PeopleSoft Expenses, contributing to reduced spend and increased efficiency throughout your organization.

PeopleSoft Mobile Expenses is integrated directly with PeopleSoft Mobile Approvals, so managers can quickly approve submitted expense reports in addition to entering or reviewing their own expenses.

Manage Approvals Anytime, Anywhere

PeopleSoft Mobile Approvals improves productivity and keeps business moving forward when your users are on the go without comprising business imperatives and operational policies. This innovative solution is delivered using the latest HTML 5 technology to allow customers to manage their critical tasks anytime through any device. PeopleSoft Approvals enables your users to approve transactions through the desktop, smart phones or tablet devices. This will speed up the approval process thus avoiding potential late payment penalties and supports early payment discounts for invoices.

Extend Business Processes with New PeopleSoft Forms and Approval Builder Capabilities

Released in early 2011, PeopleSoft Forms and Approval Builder is a tool for business analysts to develop and deploy electronic forms that facilitate and extend organizations’ business processes. Forms and Approval Builder enables the replacement of paper and email-based forms with auditable, electronically approvable transactions that look and act like a PeopleSoft application page. In PeopleSoft Enterprise Components 9.1 Bundle #2 2011, you will find several new Forms and Approval Builder capabilities that help you quickly and inexpensively tailor business processes.

Copy Form Data to an Existing PeopleSoft Transaction via the Component Interface Field Mapper

To seamlessly copy data from a form to an existing PeopleSoft transaction and thereby eliminate dual data entry, Forms and Approval Builder now offers you the option to map fields within a form to PeopleSoft Component Interface Properties. This feature is designed to streamline and tailor transaction flows. For example, you could use this feature to provide salespeople a form for submitting essential new deal information to the contract administration team. After receiving a completed form from the sales team, a contract administrator could review the form and push a button to automatically populate data fields in the existing PeopleSoft Contracts contract entry component with values from the form. In most organizations there are dozens, if not hundreds, of other opportunities to extend business processes with the Forms and Approval Builder.

Taking advantage of this new capability simply requires an analyst, who has some familiarity with PeopleSoft Component Interfaces, to use the new facility in Forms and Approval Builder to map a form’s fields to fields in one or more existing Component Interfaces.

Insert Form Section Rules, Headers, and Images.

Form usability is further enhanced with the new Section field Use Type, which provides you with an HTML editor to enable the creation of form section rules, section headers, and images. You can now guide your users through completing each section of the form by entering inline headers and instructions.

Simplifying Navigation of a Form with the use of Form Headers and Form Sections

Utilize the new Dynamic Prompting Capabilities.

When people enter appropriate data on a form, everyone’s life is easier. Improving the quality of what people enter often involves being able to limit the options for a prompt field based upon a selection made in a previous field. Well, Forms and Approval Builder has been enhanced with support for dynamic prompting, which allows you to control the data that appears in a prompt based upon the selection of other text, code, or prompt field values.

For example, if a user selects a business unit from a prompt on one of your custom forms, you can limit the Project IDs shown in the next prompt to only those within the selected Business Unit. Then, you can limit the Activity IDs shown in the Activity ID prompt to only those belonging to the selected Project ID and Business Unit. This new functionality makes your custom forms behave like a real application, not like a static paper form.

Lockdown the Form after Submission or Approval

Enhanced security is provided by giving you the option to lockdown the data in a form either after it has been submitted, after it has been approved, or not at all. This security gives you the flexibility to tightly manage processes that require it and offer more interactive collaboration for forms where control is not a priority.

Start Using It Today

Since there is no additional cost for Forms and Approval Builder, it could make a lot of sense for your organization to start using it in your PeopleSoft HCM and/or FSCM 9.1 environments today.
