Oracle Cloud Offers a Mobile Finance Experience
By Frederic Portal, Ataway Director of Strategy & Alliance

New advances in technology continue to change how business operations are run and how organizations interact with their employees, managers and outside constituents. Today’s working environment is experiencing a paradigm shift through increased mobility and global reach, with more users accessing the information they need while on the go to conduct transactions. Business transactions, including financial transactions, are no longer limited to a stationary office setting. Now, with financial mobile applications through the Cloud, users are able to access and process the information they need wherever they are, at whatever time they would like.

This significant increase in flexibility opens many new possibilities to organizations to streamline efficiencies, assist in managerial decision making, and ultimately, drive levels of organizational performance.

With Oracle ERP Cloud, users can utilize the Oracle Financials Cloud to complete transactions such as entering expenses on the go with features such as allowing users to upload photos of receipts or entering in expense information by “voice recognition.” Oracle’s Cloud applications provide an integrated, seamless desktop, tablet and mobile experience, allowing users to take actions on the device of their choosing.

Oracle Financials Cloud provides users with data in real-time, allowing managers to make informed decisions based on the latest, up to date information. The Mobile Financial Reporting Center allows users to use a tablet to view financial data and analytics. 

The UI is simple and modern, utilizing a “consumer” feel to conduct financial transactions quickly and easily. Mobile Cloud applications are leading to higher employee satisfaction and serve as a great recruiting tool, as graduating, young professionals are often seeking companies that can offer them a mobile, modern approach to their work.

Prior to focusing on building a mobile strategy, organizations should evaluate their ERP system’s performance first and then ask targeted questions to potential ERP vendors. Organizations should consider looking at how mobility fits into an ERP vendor’s overall strategy, goals and initiatives. Organizations should also look at ways that the vendor is ensuring security through mobility as well as how easily an organization will be able to integrate its mobile features and applications with their existing ERP system. 

Oracle’s Cloud platform offers unmatched levels of mobility, security and flexibility through the Cloud, providing organizations with the tools they need to engage users and enhance productivity in a secure environment. For more information on Oracle Financials Cloud, click here.
