With the introduction of Oracle's JD Edwards World Release A9.1 in March 2007, Oracle made good on its commitment to protect, extend, and evolve the software. But we haven't stopped there: our latest release, JD Edwards World A9.2, builds on these enhancements and adds advanced functionality, including: an improved Web interface, enhanced compliance support, additional lean manufacturing capabilities, enhanced EDI processing, and expanded approval management.
TECHNICAL INNOVATIONS IMPROVE ACCESS TO ADVANCED APPLICATIONS AND BUSINESS INFORMATION
With each new release and update, JD Edwards World enables you to expand the capabilities of your ERP solution. Our latest release dramatically improves your ability to integrate to other products, including Oracle's many best-of-breed applications, for faster and easier sharing of data. For example, by leveraging the advanced forecasting analytics of the Demantra Demand Management Integration, you can easily anticipate market needs.
Other technical capabilities delivered in JD Edwards World A9.2 include: Electronic Document Distribution, BI Publisher Integration for reporting via email, fax, FTP, and http.
PROJECT-BASED FUNCTIONALITY IMPROVES PROFITABILITY AND REDUCES COSTS
The enhancements delivered in JD Edwards World Release A9.2 focus on "pay when paid" processes that help project-based industries be more profitable. However (as is usually the case with JD Edwards World) these enhancements—along with many others included in this new release—will benefit customers in many different industries. They include: pay-when-paid processing to maximize contract cash flow, Contract Billing enhancements to improve contract usability and accuracy, and Labor Reclass to streamline the labor reclassification process.
NEW FINANCIAL APPLICATION: PURCHASE CARD MANAGEMENT
A new financial application, Purchase Card Management, enables you to reduce the cost of processing small invoices by as much as 70 percent. With Purchase Card Management, instead of writing checks or using petty cash, employees use a card for purchases. Managers can put restrictions on card usage, track all transactions, and store transaction details in Accounts Payable or General Ledger.
