PeopleSoft Mobile Inventory Fluid User Interface Version @ Oracle OpenWorld 2016

For OpenWorld 2016, we are excited to announce the customer-led PeopleSoft Mobile Inventory Session:

Go with the Flow with the New PeopleSoft Mobile Inventory Application [CON7036]
Wednesday, Sep 21, 3:00 p.m. in Moscone West-3000

In this session, you will see how a PeopleSoft customer, New York University Langone Medical Center, is leveraging the inventory and inbound logistics functionality in its PeopleSoft Fluid User Interface Mobile Inventory Management implementation. Using leading-edge mobile Apple devices and scanning sleds, it has enabled a mobile workforce to improve proficiency, reduce errors, and streamline operations.

PeopleSoft Mobile Inventory is now available using the new PeopleSoft Fluid User Interface. Mobile Inventory was completely rewritten to take advantage of the new PeopleSoft Fluid Interface technology and was released in 9.2 Update Images 14 and 18. The new Fluid Interface version provides all the transactions and functionality of the original Mobile Inventory ADF technology version. The new Fluid User Interface version is the new production version and will continue to receive enhancements in future roadmaps. In the interim, both the new Fluid User Interface version and the legacy ADF versions will be supported to allow organizations to upgrade to the new Fluid version.

The Fluid User Interface is an intuitive modern user interface which provides the intuitive look and feel that customers expect to see with Internet transactions today. The PeopleSoft Mobile Inventory Fluid User Interface is designed to be used with mobile touch devices. Android or Apple devices are required with at least a gigabyte of memory and a multiprocessor chip are required to run the Mobile Inventory Fluid User Interface version. Today, PeopleSoft Mobile Inventory customers are using consumer mobile devices such as Apple iPods or iPads and rugged Android mobile devices from Honeywell and Zebra. The customers also use “scanning sleds” with the consumer devices to provide an industrial laser scanning engine to scan barcodes.

Mobile Inventory increases accuracy and improves efficiency by allowing the inventory user to do the inventory transactions at the location where the inventory event is done. Mobile Inventory is a real time application and reduces data latency by directly updating the production information at time of the inventory transaction save.   

With the Fluid User Interface rewrite, PeopleSoft Mobile Inventory is completely back within PeopleTools technology. The benefit of being 100 percent PeopleTools is that Mobile inventory customers will now be able to make enhancements to the Mobile Inventory transactions and/or add new mobile transactions.
