Case Details

By integrating this resource with EnterpriseOne, one can gain unmatched control over resource procurement and order traceability while aligning the resource requirements with the project requirements.

Our ERP team understood the current challenges of the client and deployed some of the highly acclaimed functions and features of Oracle Cloud Procurement. 

The client lacked the unified and multi-dimensional e-communication that is needed for global expansion. Using the Oracle Business Network feature of the tool, we streamlined and automated electronic transactions. 

Additionally, each transaction was able to provide real-time visibility into status, exceptions, and errors. The feature also enabled the trading partners of the clients to exchange key documents in the preferred format. To bring uniformity in the purchasing and payment processing, the Oracle Payables module was activated. The resource allowed the client to eliminate unwanted steps from the purchasing process while automating the entire purchase order creation process.
