Supply chain , P2P , O2C , Finance and LC management module helps our business operations automated ; our sales increases 60-70% comparing the manual process to automation process. EBS relational conjunctions and financial conjunctions are very much strong to generate a perfect reports to the management body.

"7 Year experience in using Oracle E-Business Suite"

What do you like best?

This is very power ERP application. It works very well in supplier chain management that is semiconductor manufacturing. I have been using for 7 years integrated with our built in virtual manufacturing system (VMS) for financial transactions, yield management system for engineering analyst, OBIEE data warehouse, Agile PLM

What do you dislike?

This requires a big cost to maintain and develop or customize the new things. The performance is not really good, especially if it is installed in not really strong servers. It produces a big network latency to use Oracle Client installed remotely (Oracle server and clients are located in different countries)

The price is also the big concern. Some bugs in older version were not supported well.

It is very hard for new users to learn and practice and really need more useful documentation.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Oracle E-Business Suite is very power application and it is more suitable for large scale company. Although the price is more expensive, it can help to manage all of aspects from supplier chain management, Human resource, finance...

If you have a big company and need to find a best ERP solution for manufacturing, Oracle might be the best choice for you to consider and

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Oracle E Business suite supports very well most of semiconductor manufacturing processes. This is the core to process financial transactions sent from our virual manufacturing system, integrated with OBIEE datawarehouse, Agile PLM Project Life Cycle Management, Yield management system.

"Easy to use"

What do you like best?

I like that it is easy to look up past transactions, it is easy to use and navigate once you get used to using it. i have been using it for almost 15 years and they continue to make improvements.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that you can't look up the last time a part was counted when you are doing cycle counts.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

i think it is very easy to use and also there are a large variety of ways that Oracle E-business suite can be used. from what i know, there is a vast number of ways that oracle can be expanded on in any business that needs it for either inventory needs, financial needs, or who knows what else. It is a great product, and it can be customized for your business. as with any products, there are upsides and downsides, but i believe that the upsides far outweigh the downsides of using this product.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

keeping inventory, work orders, shipping and receiving. there are a lot more ways that oracle can be used. i don't know the full extent that it can be used, but i have heard of other ways that it can be used. i think this would be good for any medium to large businesses.

"Convenient but not intuitive"

What do you like best?

I like that you can enter a lot of invoicing at once

What do you dislike?

I don’t like that it doesn’t have pricing or that you can’t preview costs of an invoice to make sure it’s the accurate cost. It’s very easy to mess up on things like minimum charge

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would say that it is manageable to learn but they really need to make it a littlw bit more error proof. Like previewing prices and making the excel doc a little less likely to enter the wrong customer. A preview of names would be nice. Just updating the interface look also

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it for invoicing and it solves the problem that IFS had of being overly complicated. But oracle seems to have the look of a 90s IBM invoicing system

"Useful tool for mass information storage"

What do you like best?

Oracle is able to hold all of the information my company needs about all of our current sales orders and jobs, including current inventory, bills of material, and more.

What do you dislike?

Oracle is not very user friendly, and is difficult to get the hang of. It is a great tool once you learn how to navigate it, but getting to that point is very difficult.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

it's a great tool for information sharing!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Oracle helps to make information widely available across our entire company. Everyone has access to product information at all times, which is extremely convenient, as we don't need to wait on other people to gather information we need.

"Best ERP Application in market"

What do you like best?

EBS is widely used by various companies for maintaining finance and supply chain and payroll departments.

it is user friendly and needs less traning as compared to other applications. it has various tools like jdeveloper etc to build the applications. It generates lot of employment and lot of scope for enhancements.

What do you dislike?

it is a very expensive application and hence cannot be used by smaller companies which is a major drawback. it cannot be used by start up companies.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

as compared to other erp's like SAP, oracle is less expensive and has a wider scope which makes it a good option for business with start ups.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

EBS takes care of payroll department and finance department of companies with employees more than 10,000. it is single source of application which can be used to manage multiple departments in a company

"Efficient growing tool.."

What do you like best?

Ability to modify the program how you want it to appear. Incredible workflow approvals for several processes, Accounts Payable in particular. It would go through the Delegation of Authority chain after it's been coded.

What do you dislike?

Steps it takes to look for a transaction since there were several modules. When I look at a general ledger account detail, I have to go to a different module to actually find the detailed line and explanation. It would be nice if we could also upload attachments to the ERP.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely an investment, you will have to hire your own Analyst and Conversion team to ensure it's set up correctly and go through multiple training phases. Don't expect it to work 100% within the first couple of years.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

None at the moment

"Reliable and User Friendly"

What do you like best?

I love how much more dependable this program is than mycoworker. The user friendly interface allows me to catch the several mistakes made by my coworkers. I highly recommend this to any company that needs a simplistic approach to data entry.

What do you dislike?

I dislike how much it can freeze and randomly close on me before I have a chance to enter all of the information needed for the day. That's pretty much my only complaint besides the bland and boring color scheme.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Just give it a try. Even a dummy could figure out how to use this software which is a good thing.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I don't think I'm solving any problems with this program but I think it solves my problem of having a lazy coworker.

"Oracle E-Business Suite: Powerful, Flexible, but on its way out"

What do you like best?

The flexibility of writing custom applications allows us to be very flexible in how we run our business. Unfortunately, however, the interface is old school, cumbersome, and not what our end users want. They want enhanced web functionality that is not great with EBS.

What do you dislike?

Time & Labor process is cumbersome as it relates to timecards, elements, and payrolls. This does allow us to power a robust custom application for labor distribution that is the core of our business, however, our business is evolving and our system has begun to hold us back.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take a hard look at Oracle HCM Cloud.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our custom applications have allowed us to develop an incredibly complex labor distribution application that maintains our general ledger. We are one of the industry leaders in cost allocation for our federal grants (approximately $900 million per year distributed over 10,000+ employees and research projects).

"is good but can be better"

What do you like best?

is simple and fast to use , the search or options are not limited to a SR number , you have a lot of options to search for a customer or a case. we were able to use between multiple departments. with the same SR number we can follow up since sales when the order starts then to customer service and if there were any issues with tech support and we can go back and forth also we need to close the case manually i found this to be the best since on newer applications if you set the status to wait on a customer it sends 3 reminders then close the case with out letting us know so its nice to have control on that with this ORACLE application.

What do you dislike?

its having a lot of issues with java , and sometimes it takes a really long time to run because of this , also is really old and it closes when not in use .also the graphic interface is not that easy to use .

Recommendations to others considering the product:

if you use other oracle solutions this could be good for you but they are other suites that are easier to use and with a better graphic interface

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

we used them for sales orders , customer service and helpdesk , now on this days we only use it for sales orders since we moved customer service and tech support (helpdesk) to another application. .in the past the suite was solving a lot of issues since we use it on several departments like , customer service , tech support and sales .

"Oracle iProcurement - Consider something else"

What do you like best?

I like that it can handle an approval workflow, and keep track of the different requisitions as well as be able to go back to a requisition that you made a mistake on so you can change it.

What do you dislike?

I really dislike this tool. It was configured a long time ago it seems, and I don't like how many clicks to find something it takes. The alerts set up on it is almost non-existent and that makes my job more manual. It also looks very old. To put in a requisition it takes a long time because clicking on a field to populate it usually means that the system will try to preload something for you, significantly slowing you down

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use something else, with alerts integrated into it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it to put our requistions through on orders, and also to receive invoices. I like that we can put requisitions through and the approval workflow seems to work well enough.

"Like any ERP system, there's good and there's bad."

What do you like best?

Once you understand how the software works, it becomes fairly intuitive to figure out how to accomplish what you need to do.

I like the fact that it is web-based, and depending on your organization's security setup, you can access it from anywhere.

It is a fairly robust system, and while there may be some things that the system just will not do or allow, those things are few and far between. With help from a good consultant, you can achieve almost any setup you desire.

What do you dislike?

Java can be a real pain. We set up our users' systems with the right version of Java, the right compatibility mode settings, etc., when they are given their computer. However, when there is an update to Java or a patch to Oracle, it can be a real mess trying to let users know how to update those setting and still be able to access our Oracle instance.

The reporting from within Oracle is disappointing-- often ugly and in basic ASCI text format, rather than a spreadsheet (or even a PDF).

Reports are also limited in scope, so organizations that need robust reporting capabilities will likely need to purchase additional reporting software.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I highly recommend working with a consultant group to help with your implementation, but more importantly, to also to have those consultants work closely with an internal team that will become the internal consultants for your organization. The maintenance and ongoing evolution of the software is extremely important-- you will need those individuals to be the subject matter experts on the different modules of the system once go-live is over and the consultants have moved on to another project.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There have been several process improvements across our organization due to the implementation of Oracle. Many of our operating companies previously used software that had much looser control on inventory, invoicing, accounting, etc. (Software such as QuickBooks, MYOB, and more)

While there is a little pain for the users in moving to a system with tighter controls and less forgiving finance and accounting modules, it ends up forcing users to really follow best practices, rather than being able to manipulate an ERP system with weak restrictions to work around what are essentially "broken" processes.

"Great Product With Excellent Control But No User Friendly"

What do you like best?

We use Oracle eBusiness Suite for financials and supply chain support within our business. We use it across the whole organization from Finance to Warehouse. Integration is a huge issue as no such APIs or integration is available. Further, we cann't say this is user friendly application. Oracle team need to review to make more user friendly. Further, This product have good Controls with end to end cycle. Very much mature and good community support available . As currently we are using 5 modules in Oracle Financial and 3 fro Supply Chain.

What do you dislike?

Integration is very much poor with other applications, only inter-phase available for any third party integration which not good in today's world. Further, this product need to improve in dashboard. Additionally, this product is not user friendly

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Integration layer should be evaluate in detail. End User should have complete use cases before implementation of this product as this may pay huge cost difference. Overall this is an expensive product.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before , Implementation many of manual processes were in in-progress. Financial approvals , work flows, Leger and many of thing were maintaining manually which creates a huge issue and gaps toward management.. Due to this many of weak decisions were taken which impact overall organisation.

"Clunky and obtuse"

What do you like best?

Information is easy to access when I need it, and can be quick.

What do you dislike?

Hard to find the information I need if I don't know where to access it in the first place. It feels like only certain people can do certain jobs at certain times, causing a stand still if there are any issues.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure that, if something does not work, that it will not harm business significantly. I feel like, if one thing goes wrong on our end, many other things go wrong.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It allows me to handle customer requests much easier, as it is a fast and easy way to access that information. At my hands are every invoice the customer may be thinking about, the finances of their account, and everything they have ever paid.

"Oracle E-Business Suite provides easy access to HR files and downloadable reports."

What do you like best?

I like that all of the information is conveniently located in one place and can be access from anywhere, as long as you connect to the server, or in my case, through the VPN and have access to that information. It is easy for data entry to update information that changes and for mass uploads to update multiple employees' information at once.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that the system is not very intuitive. I frequently had to ask a coworker if something was available in Oracle and where to find it. I was constantly learning which box to click to bring up another window of data. Some of the data was easy to find, but other data is a bit harder.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Don't be afraid to ask questions if you do not know how to find something. The system isn't entirely intuitive.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I worked in an HR Call Center and all of the employee's major HR information (address, benefits enrollment, salary, etc.) was conveniently located in one place. This allowed me to answer multiple questions by going to one place.

"Oracle E-Business makes reporting easy!"

What do you like best?

I like the organization of the product. Has several different functionalities. Reports are clear to read and give numbers as well as visual data in the form of graphs. I like how I am able to see all of my clients and my sales reflect daily. It gives me all the information I need to stay organized and hit my goals. It also breaks down my commission numbers and shows me my year to date numbers, month to date numbers, and week to date numbers. The reports also forecast which accounts might not start based off of trends.

What do you dislike?

I have trouble logging in to web pages from certain browsers. When I log in, I will get a "Bad Manager" Access warning. I solve it by changing browsers and logging in on the new browser. Also, There can be pages with too much information. There is no guide on how to read the data and a lot of it is knowing what you are looking for before doing your research.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Might have to switch back and forth from Internet Explorer and Google Chrome to be able to log in. Otherwise very useful tool for keeping track of sales, clients, and other internal information.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I keep track of my clients and my sales numbers. Helps me stay organized and reach my goals. I can use several different links and reports to see which clients I have sold to, which items have been sold, and any items that might not sell.

"Easy to use with training"

What do you like best?

It is easy for traceability to see the last transactions and history, and allows for anyone to update PO's and had good searching functionality.

What do you dislike?

The fact that it is web-based is frustrating, there is an applet that is requires to run which resets and can cause issues with the company securities. It also does not work with Google Chrome, requiring one to constantly use internet explorer or firefox; this is not my preferred browser at work.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend moving to this when using multiple sites, the biggest benefit is how easy it is to switch from location to location. It is not the most intuitive to start using but once the user has had ~2-3 months it becomes second nature, and transactions take minimal time.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is easy to see what is going on cross business, which has allowed us to consolidate spend when able.

"E-Business Suite Gets It Done"

What do you like best?

Stability of Servers

Mature System

Easy to navigate interface

Lots of speed when you need it

What do you dislike?

Dated interface

UI is very unintuitive

Not built for modern computing

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's likely not a product many people use at this point however it is solid and stable when in use. There are several features including a back end web interface that allows us to make very granular changes within an account to get the most up-to-date information on the client. That level of control is unprecedented in a typical GUI interface.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use this for CRM, Customer Management, Logistics and Taking care of back end services that make the job we do much more efficient.

"Oracle is good for managing the HR needs of a large company"

What do you like best?

I like that I can manage my hours, benefits, and pay all in one location

What do you dislike?

Its very straightforward so there is not much to dislike. I suppose the interface could be a bit more user friendly but as far as functionality goes, it is a great streamlined tool.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Would highly recommend to any larger company to ease the burden of many "paperwork" activities.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Business problems being solved are that employees can do "self service" on a lot of things like changing pay, updating addresses, making new benefit selections which takes a load off of manual HR work.

"Learning curve, but makes sense"

What do you like best?

I like the interface, although I wish it was more customizable on the user end.

What do you dislike?

I dislike how it can be a bit tedious to find the applications on it that I use frequently

Recommendations to others considering the product:

take the training and practice to get comfortable with the interface.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Creating requisitions for purchase orders in order to get invoices paid. I believe it's benefiting because everyone seems to be on the same page.

"Advanced and Well Designed"

What do you like best?

1) Ability to customize solution to our needs

2) Integration with most third party vendors for payments/taxes etc.

3) Workflows defining the business process and sending out various types of notifications.

4) Standard and customized reports for the day-to-day operations in several domains.

5) Alerts to identify and resolve the issues in various business processes.

What do you dislike?

1) Oracle support standards have gone down in recent past

2) Extensive documentation but with no co-relation to the issue. Without complete understanding of the business process it's very difficult to identify the issue even before thinking of resolving it.

3) Performance and huge memory requirements for the deployments of few modules.

4)

Recommendations to others considering the product:

1) If a business warrants non-standard business processes and needs system to manage them then Oracle EBS is one of the best places to go.

2) For a small and medium scale business, it will be a bit of a rip-off even with hosted solution from Oracle Cloud

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We help customers in domains like CRM and SCM modules primarily. We work with various modules of Oracle EBusiness Suite. List is literally never ending but dealing mostly in Inventory/Services/ Financials/Projects and TIme & Labor modules.

"Full customizable application to your business"

What do you like best?

You can adapt the product to your case and make custom workflows of the final user, using financials, and any other module,

Account payable, Account Receivable, General Ledger, Property Manager, PO, are only a few modules you can use to manage your business

What do you dislike?

I don't like the forms console, but they are working hard to remove this console, and everything will be manage with HTML page, so you can access from any device, not only from your PC or desktop, you can use your mobile phone or tablet to work.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are using oracle EBS, go ahead and migrate to the Cloud using IaaS!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm a DBA specialized on Oracle E-Business Suite, but the customers get rid of Excel and paper, using the entire suite make them focus on their business and innovate, and forget everything related with manual stuff.

"Very powerful but somewhat complicated to use ERP"

What do you like best?

It has a lot of functionalities supporting many of the company's business processes

What do you dislike?

It is slow to run, not that user friendly and it has a cumbersome dependency on a specific Java platform/browser version

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Before implementing it, you should have your processes defined and standarized, considering what could be automated and what must remain as manual steps. Keep into consideration that depending on the EBS version you are installing, specific software must be used in order to log into EBS, particularly for funcions using Java Forms.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Human Resources, Expenses and reinbursements, Service requets management. It has a lot of preconfigured flow controls for these and other processes

"EBS Review Application Administrator"

What do you like best?

My experience with Oracle E-Business Suite was like SysAdmin, I like the amount of documentation that existed and the support of it.

When you have time to manage the tool, the task becomes easy, most patch installation processes are well documented. Oracle support in case of application failures is very good, they are willing to help in case of failure, if a high priority fault occurs, Oracle communicates directly with the case manager to find the fastest solution.

What do you dislike?

I did not like the little information that logs the application. It's a bit cumbersome look in the application logs, usually before a failure are not evident errors that give the problem easily, usually end up needing the support of Oracle to solve the complicated issues of the application.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Read the official documentation, have patience for the administration of this tool. In the processes of migration or update it is advisable to have specialists of the application for guidance in these tasks.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Usually used in the company for the financial part, carrying the processes of purchase orders, invoicing, etc.

"Not conveniently tied to Salesforce"

What do you like best?

Reports can go back far in time since this system has been in place for a decade.

What do you dislike?

Cannot easily pull information out of salesforce, instead need a separate login (and IT requests, password changes, etc) to access. Cannot view on mobile, cannot get to information on demand without hauling out my laptop. Reports cannot be easily customized & manipulated, all data points have to be selected to be shown in old template reports from Oracle.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Unless they offer an app & stop requiring VPN/intranet access, your employees will find this frustrating. Security must be balanced with ease of use.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Oracle for sales reporting and expenses. Expenses & reports are not “solved”, because employees have to login to VPN & then Oracle to submit them.

Benefit is that it’s easy to print to table or pdf.

I like the way it organizes things so clearly and efficiently; it makes expense reporting much easier! I also like that you are able to see ongoing status updates in regards to whether your expense report has been approved by your supervisor or not-- that is very helpful when attempting to follow up on a report.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that occasionally it resets itself before you have an opportunity to save your work and therefore your work has not been saved do you have to re-do it. However, some of that may be user error and not just the software.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I think this software is a worthy investment and will be helpful and easy to use. However, I don't know that I would recommend it for a very small company as it many not be worth the price in comparison to how many people will be using it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is has solved keeping expense reports organized and helping with reconciling accounts. It also provides helpful status updates which makes tracking reports much easier and user friendly.

"Massive program, but plenty of issues"

What do you like best?

Clean layouts, ability to drill infinite levels below the surface.

What do you dislike?

Reporting is tricky - reports that must be updated must be done manually.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I wish there was some way where you could update reports all at once or have report fields linked to each other. We have a spent a lot of time manually updating multiple reports for the same information when it seems like they should be able to link somehow. however, Oracle seems to be responsive to our other issues as they occur.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A software for our GL system

"Oracle For Accounting "

What do you like best?

It's user-friendly for the most part - you can figure out how to perform new tasks pretty easily. It's very quick to run various reports.

What do you dislike?

There are some limitations that seem pretty ridiculous. For example, you cannot run an account analysis that spans more than 1 calendar year. It also timeouts very quickly if you're not using it - results in numerous re-signons throughout the day. Also when copying a previous report run, it's really tough to see the details of what was run.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I think it's a very comprehensive system. It's reliable for the most part, and easy to customize if you have the right IT people.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Balance sheet issues are solved with Oracle using the account analysis and other payables-related reports.

"Positive Experience Using Oracle"

What do you like best?

I liked that our timekeeping, payroll, employee database, etc were all synced within one tool allowing our process's to streamline smoothly.

What do you dislike?

I disliked when we were not able to log in using internet explorer. There was a time that we could not use the timekeeping tool in any other web browser as well. Its appearance also looked outdated.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We currently no longer use Oracle as our employee database but still use it for other entities. One benefit that I realized when we did use it for our main employee database is that we had smoother process's.

"Pnc oracle"

What do you like best?

I use the reports that oracle produces to keep myself honest in my follow up. It helps sort each customer that I share an insight on which in turn gives me a list that I can follow up on

What do you dislike?

It’s a good and bad thing but there are many drop down menus. I think one sort feature, clicking on what you want in one drop down menu would be more user friendly

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Contestant follow up. People that are in front of me are stored by the insights I click on and let’s me come back to follow up later on.

Extensive ERP with a complete list of modules to meet all your business needs.

What do you dislike?

Expensive for medium business, scarcity of the workforce having the technical knowledge of this ERP. B2B and B2C E-commerce front-end need to be modernized, to better suit today's e-commerce requirement in terms of mobile-friendly user interface.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Consider the cloud-based version, try to keep custom code at a minimum.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ERP based on industry best practices, can easily sustain our actual business growth and for the years to come
