Back in November of last year I presented at the Link 10 conference. There was a great turn out and the conference was well planned and organized. Oracle representatives were present and gave various presentations on new functionality coming up in the next version, PeopleSoft 9.2. Also, a couple of demos were presented on Oracle’s Fusion Applications. I was impressed with the user friendly interface and some of the functionality being delivered with Fusion.
My particular presentation was, “Extending the Reach of Your PeopleSoft SCM”. The focus of my presentation was the group of PeopleSoft SCM modules that comprise the PeopleSoft SRM (Supplier Relationship Management) suite. Those modules are PeopleSoft Purchasing, eProcurement, Services Procurement, Supplier Contracts, Strategic Sourcing, and eSupplier Connection.
The purpose of the PeopleSoft SRM suite of modules is to support the goals of Supply Management. Those goals are:
- The Right Materials
- In the Right Quantity
- For Delivery at the Right Time and Location
- From the Right Source
- With the Right Service Levels
- At the Right Cost.
The SRM modules support these goals by providing robust and flexible sourcing, strong contract management and enforcement, real-time visibility to orders and shipments, tools that allow communication and collaboration between you and your suppliers, and the ability to capture and report on supplier performance metrics.
