Oracle recently released PeopleSoft FSCM Update Image 24 through the PeopleSoft Update Manager. Using Selective Adoption, organizations can choose the features within this 9.2 Update Image they would like to take and when they would like to apply them. Because of the number of new features within this Update Image, are covering the top six features of that Image 24.

Oracle also just released a new video to highlight those new functionalities.

 

Text Message to My Walle

A new functionality allow employees to send a text message using Twilio integration to My Wallet. Users take a picture of a receipt and send the image to a central incoming text-messaging account for their company, without having to login. When the message is received, the system identifies the employee using the cell number the message was sent from, and places the attachment in their Wallet. This allows the employee to add the attachment to an expense report at a later time.
