Leveraging iReceivables and Approvals Management Engine (AME) for Customer Disputes

In any business environment, an out-of-the-box IT solution rarely fits the implementing company’s needs, especially when end customers are directly involved. This presentation is aimed at sharing our unique experiences of implementing Customer Disputes within iReceivables using Approvals Management Engine (AME). From both a functional and technical approach, we will examine our solution focusing on the following topics: Dispute Process; Dispute and AME Setup; Auto-Disputes; and Personalizations.

Our case study is sure to educate those interested in leveraging AME and Disputes to increase collections efficiency and improve customer service.

This presentation will not only help understand all the options, but also aid in decision making process when it comes to using the right system for the application. Each engineered system includes its’ own special secret sauce, each with unique advantages and disadvantages for different workloads. Help spice up the session and bring your questions!

Replacing Oracle Discoverer – What are the options?

Oracle Discoverer is a widely used, FREE, real-time analytical tool that has been a staple of Oracle EBS. It is critical to accountants who use real-time reporting in their month-end close process.

In March, 2014 Oracle announced it was “sun-setting” Discoverer and “transitioning” to Oracle Business Intelligence Foundation Suite. Discoverer will no longer be offered after version Discoverer 11gR1 and extended support for 11gR1 runs out in June, 2017.

We will take you through the pros and cons of replacement options from Oracle and 3rd party applications to give you a feel for what is out there to replace this critical tool. There are numerous “Replacing Discoverer” presentations cropping up these days.

This presentation is unique in that I don’t have a 3rd party replacement product I am selling.
