Quick Start with Mobile Solutions from Oracle

Integrated Business Processes and Complete Transparency with 14 Mobile Applications for Oracle E-Business Suite

Ettlingen, February 10, 2015 – The world has become mobile: nowadays mobile working with laptop, smartphone and tablet computers is an integral part of everyday business. In order to enable the mobile workforce to make business decisions in real time, both a platform- and a device-independent access to all relevant corporate data are required. PROMATIS software GmbH – Oracle Platinum Partner and specialist for intelligent business processes with Oracle applications-, cloud- and technology competence – provides also a quick introduction in 14 mobile applications of Oracle E-Business Suite. With these four horizontal mobile applications and ten mobile role-based business applications, companies can optimize and consolidate their business processes seamlessly in a mobile environment – anytime, fast and simple – for an exchange of data that is always up-to-date.

The increasing share of mobile operating employees increases the pressure on IT departments to integrate smartphones, tablets & Co. into business processes and fully exploit their potential benefits. Today, more than half of all employees work at least partially mobile, and that number is on the rise. Flexible workplace concepts, such as the ability to work from home offices, have contributed to this development. Thus, it is becoming more and more important to equip employees with mobile devices and applications. The “Mobile Workforce” is growing and with it the demand in terms of mobility strategies that have already been implemented by some companies. Business apps, however, are usually not integrated into the enterprise IT, but serve as mobile island solutions on a company’s smartphones and tablets. And in many cases, private systems are involved (keyword: “Bring your own device”). In order to optimize business processes, mobile solutions need to be included into the enterprise IT as a unified whole. In order to enable the mobile workforce to make business decisions in real time, both a platform and a terminal-independent access to all relevant corporate data are required. In order to improve the transparency in the company, the employees need access to current performance indicators, financial ratios and information that include and apply to all departments, products, partners and locations of the company.

Due to this growing demand, Oracle has developed 14 mobile applications for the Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS): four cross-industry and ten role-based applications. These applications provide the company with a mobile accessibility for the workforce and support increased productivity and employee satisfaction, with the added unbeatable advantage: the applications are “for free”! They provide a simple “on-the-go” access to industry-wide functions such as approvals, expenses, time and attendance as well as employee inquiries and role-based business functions for customer orders, procurement, product information, inventory, project management, manufacturing, maintenance and field service. Mobile applications are compatible with both Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1.3 and 12.2, an additional update is not required.

However companies are therefore faced with the challenge to provide employees with a high level of mobility and to enable for the related productivity increase while keeping IT security, compliance regulations and the efficient management of devices and applications in mind. At the same time, the optimization of business processes becomes increasingly important.
