Oracle has improved its JD Edwards World applications with new compliance and self-service options.
With the A7.3 Service Pack 16, Oracle has made functionality enhancements to cash flow reporting, improved the audit trails within the general ledger, updated batch headers, and added an approval process in accounts payable to monitor the outflow of cash.
Oracle said the additions would make it easier for JD Edwards World customers to comply with regulatory mandates such as Sarbanes-Oxley, and gain increased insight into financial reporting practices and internal controls.
In addition, self-service applications are now included in the basic JD Edwards World web services product, giving firms’ customers real-time, 24-hour access to purchasing and order status information over the internet via an intuitive interface.
Employee self-service features provide direct access to financial and human resources information, including payroll, benefits and holiday status.
The enhancements are designed to further illustrate Oracle’s commitment to JD Edwards customers after it acquired the products as part of its purchase of PeopleSoft.
