PeopleSoft Mobile Inventory

Posted by

PeopleSoft Mobile Inventory 9.2 provides a lot of benefits and as new instances are released, new functionality is being added.

Across different industries, users perform tasks using handheld Windows-enabled devices, PDAs, tablets, and handheld rugged scanners. One area in particular that mobile devices have a big impact on is Mobile Inventory as it provides many benefits, such as improved accuracy, increased mobility, and convenience, thereby streamlining movement, counts, and inquiries while reducing human errors.

Mobile Inventory Management addresses various inventory and purchasing functions. The list of supported transactions includes such things as:

  • Par Count
  • Par Count Ad Hoc
  • Guided Count
  • Receiving Ad Hoc
  • Express Issue
  • Count by Location
  • Count by Item
  • Manual Count
  • Perform Put Away
  • Bin-to-Bin Transfer
  • Delivery Cart
  • Delivery
  • Receiving PO
  • Adjustments
  • Picking Feedback
  • Item Stock Inquiry
  • Fulfillment Inquiry

As you may have noticed, not all transactions and inquiries listed above may be relevant to your corporation. Not to worry, you have the option of selecting what will be implemented when using PeopleSoft Mobile Inventory Management.

On another note, there are several advantages of implementing PeopleSoft Mobile Inventory over a third-party hand held system to integrate mobile devices. The biggest advantage is that Mobile Inventory Management shares the same database as the other PeopleSoft SCM modules and eliminates the need to install, configure and maintain a separate database for your mobile device capture needs. As a result, some of the key features that Mobile Inventory has to offer includes the following:

  • Real-time mobile transactions on various rugged and personal devices
  • Reduction of data errors through barcode scanning
  • Support for transactions and inquiries in receiving and inventory
  • Rapid deployment leveraging existing PeopleSoft Inventory and Purchasing processes
  • Security enabled by Role and User ID
  • Leveraging of PeopleSoft Security setup
  • Easy personalization of page rendering on various devices based on user preferences and skill levels

PeopleSoft 9.2 Optimization White Paper

Posted by

We have posted many blogs surrounding the topics of optimization, such as the structured process to optimization, configuring WorkCenters, Fluid navigation collections, Fluid pivot grid tiles, simplified analytics, etc. We have also published a detailed white paper that describes the structured workshops, PeopleSoft product reviews and optimization roadmap – putting the concepts together from beginning to end including a specific results-oriented example. It is important to fully understand how all of these concepts come together to most effectively optimize PeopleSoft. Below is an excerpt from our white paper. Be sure to check out it out in its entirety by clicking here.

From our white paper:

We have seen it many times before, organizations upgrade to 9.2 but only perform a technical upgrade to maintain support. While it may serve the organization in the short term to quickly or cheaply move to 9.2, it does not provide the business any value. The business continues to operate as though it was the early 2000’s, not leveraging the modern toolset and latest features and functionality. There is no optimization and improvement in the business processes or overall improvement to the organization which does not result in cost savings, strategic value-add of employees or, in general, more efficient operations.

Let’s explore specifically how the above-defined scenario can be detrimental to the organization but, at the same time, be easily fixable – not only easily fixable but likely resulting in far superior business value than could be envisioned……

Within this white paper we will walk through the formal and structured process to PeopleSoft optimization: define key objectives for the organization and leverage those objectives as a guide to analyzing the new features and functionality to deploy, create recommendations, prioritize those recommendations, create a project and deliverables roadmap and provide an example with results tying the process all together.
