Oracle Purchasing

 Improves buying power, helps negotiate bigger discounts, eliminates paper flow, increases financial controls, and increases productivity.

Oracle Purchasing is the centerpiece of Oracle Advanced Procurement and in many respects, its enhancements are the centerpiece of R12. Primary among these enhancements is the introduction of the Professional Buyer's Work Center (PBWC), a central 'launch pad' from which professional buyers can assume command and control. The PBWC provides an intuitive web-based UI that puts key procurement functions at the finger tips in an elegant and consistent layout.

  • Tolerance based auto-approvals for supplier and requestor driven change requests
  • Multi-Org Access Control for Shared Services
  • Style sheets that match tasks with screen layouts
  • Support For Complex Services, including:
    • Financing Terms (Advance Amount and Recoupment Rate)
    • Retain age Terms (Maximum Amount and Rate)
    • Pay Items (Rate, Lump sum, or Milestone)
  • eBusiness Tax integration
  • Enhanced Document Communication (new layouts for .Pdf's and support for new attachment types)
  • Pricing Improvements (Integration with Advanced Pricing & mass re-pricing of purchasing documents)
  • Support Contingent Workers as Purchasing Users
  • Automate the Entire Procure-to-Pay Cycle: Define suppliers and agreements; then automate your entire purchasing cycle from purchase order to settlement
  • Improve Supply Base Management: Take central control of all supplier and item master information with an application that tightly integrate suppliers into your organization by leveraging advanced supply management capabilities
  • Adapt to Any Purchasing Practice: Adapt the application to your organization's purchasing practices with uniquely configurable policies and an open architecture that integrates legacy and supplier systems

Oracle Order Entry

Provides organizations with a sophisticated order entry system for managing customer commitments.

However, your customers may not take note of your operational execution. After all, they expect to get what they ordered when they want it. To achieve a Perfect Order from your customer's point of view requires much more:

  • Recognition in any channel—whether online, through a distributor, electronically, or your own call center customers expect a consistent experience and that all elements of their longstanding business relationship carry through
  • Special Pricing—Again, through any channel, customers expect to get the right price...their price
  • Accommodation of Unique Specifications—From special labeling, to custom packing, to demands for a minimum remaining shelf life, customers expect that you will consistently meet their requirements
  • Perfect Installation—When a complete solution involves both physical goods and services, arrival of these elements must be perfectly aligned

With ever-changing market conditions, trends, and business innovation this list will continue to grow. What is required is the ability to respond agilely and cost effectively to these shifts.
