Here’s an interesting interview with Lyle Ekdahl, group vice president and general manager for Oracle’s JD Edwards.
Profit: What’s special about the latest JD Edwards release?
Ekdahl: The current release has more than 20 patents pending on the work that we’ve done. We provided a whole new user interaction paradigm for our customers by leveraging Oracle technologies with rich user experiences, and applying them to our JD Edwards products. This gave users a very robust, engaging environment. We also added features to improve productivity, such as carousel-based navigation and type-ahead search. Then, we offered users the ability to personalize the look and feel for their own applications.

Setting up Recurring Vouchers in Accounts Payable can be a great time-saver. They are perfect for situations when vouchers need to be entered at specific intervals and the amounts and G/L Distributions are always the same. Examples might be:
- Monthly mortgage and car payments
- Quarterly subscription dues
- Annual life insurance payments
The process is similar to entering a Standard Voucher, with just a couple of extra fields to enter, and 1 report to run.

The existing Financial Reports that come standard with JDEdwards are not pretty, I must admit. They tend to get very long due to 0-balance accounts printing.

And how do you get them to print the balances for specific Business Units, vs. rolling them up to the Company level, or maybe even using a category Code to consolidate? The last topic is the focus of this article: report consolidations. Read more…
