JD Edwards – 2017 Highlights

Proving an Intuitive, Efficient, and Effective Way For Users to Perform Their Day-to-Day Tasks Using UX One

UX One is a major advancement in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne user experience, and increases user productivity by leveraging the Alert, Analyze, Act design principle. UX One includes both a set of role-based application content that customers can utilize out of the box as well as tools that you can use to create, configure, and personalize your solution to further optimize a user’s interaction with JD Edwards EnterpriseOne. You can learn more directly from the Oracle Data Sheet, Presentation and VIDEO on UX One.

UX One Includes:

  • 50 Roles Across 23 Functional Areas. PresentationDocumentation and Whitepaper
  • Restricted Use License of One View Reporting. Review
  • UX One Composite Pages (129)
  • UX One Watchlist (333)
  • UX One Analytic Components. Providing real-time, transactional information to JD Edwards end users. Users are able to visually analyze current business conditions and more easily identify problems that need attention. Navigation from the Analytic Components allows users to quickly take action.

Notifications, Stay Informed and Act Fast with JD Edwards Notifications

More than just a pop-up alert, the notification system enables users to remain in touch with the critical conditions and events that happen continuously throughout the system, and to quickly take action upon those events even when they are not signed on to the JD Edwards system.
Using Orchestrator Studio, business users can design notifications specific to their organizations processes, rules, and required action. Notification can be a simple text messages, information from Watchlists, or the full power of orchestrations. A scheduler allows the notifications to run periodically and automatically, and continuously monitoring the system for critical conditions and events. When a critical event or exception is detected, the notification system will notify the appropriate users via their preferred delivery: within the JD Edwards web client, in the JD Edwards Work Center, or via email or text message. WATCH VIDEO

Barcode Scanning

Barcode scanning reduces the need to manually enter information, making users more efficient and less prone to errors. Existing mobile applications have been enhanced to allow barcodes to be scanned via the device camera or through a peripheral device. Mobile Applications enhancements are within Equipment Management, Case Management, Project Management, Conditioned Based Maintenance, and Service Management. Additional fields that can now use barcode scanning are Service Order Number, Work Order Number, and Asset Number.
