Oracle has announced three new JD Edwards EnterpriseOne mobile applications. The three new mobile applications - JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Mobile Requisition Self Service Approval, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Mobile Purchase Order Approval, and JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Mobile Sales Inquiry - are aimed at helping to improve productivity by delivering management solutions that can be accessed at any time or from anyplace.
The three new mobile applications support the iPhone, as well as BlackBerry and Android devices, Bob Monahan, senior director, Oracle JD Edwards Strategy and Product Marketing, tells 5 Minute Briefing. The user interface for these applications has been redesigned from the bottom up for a smartphone, Monahan says, making them "intuitive, very easy to use, and very easy to navigate."
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Mobile Requisition Self Service Approval provides real-time transaction processing for the review, approval or rejection of requisitions; Mobile Purchase Order Approval helps enable mobile workers to review and approve purchase orders regardless of physical location; and Mobile Sales Inquiry addresses the needs of sales representatives, service technicians and managers by providing access to sales orders, item availability and item base price on-demand.
This announcement follows another Oracle announcement in the general area of mobility. At OpenWorld in October, Oracle announced JD Edwards EnterpriseOne support for the iPad, delivering the first complete ERP suite that can run entirely on the iPad.
