The additions will help users to better comply with regulatory mandates such as Sarbanes-Oxley, according to Oracle, as well as to gain insight into financial reporting practices and internal controls. Self-service applications in the World base product will enable users to provide their customers with round-the-clock access to purchasing and order status information over the Internet. The interface features customer recognition and will thus deliver a personalized interaction. Employee self-service features have also been added that will provide direct access to financial and human resources information, including payroll, benefits and vacation time status. Oracle is trying to woo SAP users with 100 percent license credit to switch to Oracle applications. Click here to read more. In addition, A7.3 SP 16 delivers updates tailored to locally relevant statutory requirements in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Italy, Ireland, Mexico and Spain. The Service Pack also includes updates that support the IBAN (International Bank Account) used in Europe and cash flow analysis to help customers meet IAS requirements. Oracle relied on the World Product User Group and the World Product Advisory Council for feedback on the updates.
