Oracle Ships Smartphone Expense Management App for JDE E1
March 13, 2012 Alex Woodie
Oracle last week shipped its fourth new smartphone app for its JD Edwards EntepriseOne customers. Mobile Expense Management, which runs on iOS, Android, and Blackberry phones, makes it easier for employees to submit their expenses to management for payment.
Mobile Expense Management enables workers to enter, submit, review, and approve expense reports in real time via their smart phones. “By enabling mobile workers to manage expense reports on their mobile devices, Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Mobile Expense Management can reduce time to payment and increase employee satisfaction,” Lyle Ekdahl, Oracle’s group vice president general manager for JD Edwards, says in a press release.
Oracle delivered its first batch of three smartphone apps–including Mobile Requisition Self Service Approval, Mobile Purchase Order Approval, and Mobile Sales Inquiry–last month. The new EnterpriseOne mobile apps run on Oracle’s Application Developer Framework and requires Oracle’s WebLogic server. That means that EnterpriseOne shops who run the ERP software on IBM i cannot use the new EnterpriseOne mobile apps.
