Oracle has rolled out a service pack for its JD Edwards World ERP applications, a move that will help demonstrate its commitment to the products after acquiring them as part of its PeopleSoft takeover at the beginning of the year.
The update allows customers to improve their regulatory compliance, build self-service applications and lower their operating costs, said Oracle.
Elements such as Cash Flow Reporting, General Ledger and Accounts Payable have also been improved through the service pack.
The opportunity to introduce self-service applications will allow users to offer their customers round-the-clock access to purchasing and order information on-line. Self-service also allows users to introduce features covering human resources functions for their employees.
Oracle also this week launched a marketing campaign to woo SAP business software users over to its own solutions, by enticing them with up to 100% license credits for their existing SAP applications.
