News Facts

  • Further extending its commitment to the mobile workforce, Oracle today announced Oracle's PeopleSoft Mobile Expenses, Oracle's PeopleSoft Mobile Approvals and Oracle's PeopleSoft Mobile Company Directory.
  • The new PeopleSoft mobile applications provide today's mobile workforce with real-time access to critical business information by providing an intuitive user experience that delivers constant access to key enterprise processes and analytics via the desktop, smartphones or tablet devices.
  • The mobile applications take advantage of HTML5 and CSS 3 and do not require downloads, making it easier for IT teams to deploy and administer a low cost solution for their end users.
  • Each of the PeopleSoft mobile applications are available with the current PeopleSoft 9.1 release at no additional cost to current customers and require no additional software or middleware, as long as the user already has the corresponding PeopleSoft application.
  • There is no complex provisioning or versioning to deal with from an apps store. Users simply log in using their standard PeopleSoft permissions, to an intuitive, touch optimized, user experience geared toward their smart phone or tablet device.
  • With each of these new mobile applications, managers and employees can engage in processes with a high degree of portability. For example, an employee could start logging expenses on their smart phone while traveling, make updates on their laptop in the office, and submit the report for approval from a tablet from their home. 
  • All versions of PeopleSoft are fully supported on the iPad, enabling customers to access any version of PeopleSoft applications anywhere and at any time through the intuitive iPad user interface.

New PeopleSoft Mobile Applications Deliver Access to Critical Business Data Anytime, Anywhere
