PayMatch® Pro Demo: Pay Cycle Reconciliation

PayMatch Pro is designed to be agnostic to Payroll applications. PayMatch® automates payroll testing that occurs during tax updates, organizational changes, conversions, or an application upgrade is applied. Online review screens display payroll discrepancies in eight comparison categories, including earnings, deductions, and taxes which may have resulted from the system changes. The applications supported are Oracle HCM Cloud (Fusion), Oracle EBS, and Oracle PeopleSoft.

The Business Case for ‘Lifting and Shifting’ Oracle EBS to the Oracle Public Cloud

While the race to the cloud continues, many organizations are not ready to rip and replace their existing on premise Oracle ERP systems and launch into a new and costly SaaS software implementation. Fortunately, SaaS is not the only rocket ship to the cloud. A much less intrusive approach is to re-platform your existing ERP software to the infrastructure cloud layer. This session will explain the basic concepts of cloud computing, evaluate alternative cloud ERP strategies and build the business case to continue to leverage your existing EBS investment.

INVENTORY – Fixed Assets CAN do that!

Ever participate in an on-site inventory count with temporary workers? Did the process run smoothly and efficiently?  Did the process ensure audit compliance for your company’s fixed assets?  My guess is there’s probably room for improvement in this area.  The reason is that full asset inventory cycle counts can be time consuming, difficult to coordinate, and very expensive.

-Come see how Oracle Fixed Assets can be utilized to tie system counts to physical counts. 

-Come see how business teams within your organization can help streamline the asset inventory process.

-Come see how Atlanta OAUG shares new and innovative ideas for improving everyday processes….See you there
