PROJECT-BASED FUNCTIONALITY IMPROVES PRODUCTIVITY, 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.

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.
