EVO B2B Offers Easy Payment Integration to Oracle E-Business Suite

by: EVO Payments

EVO B2B’s integrated payment solutions are based on 15 years of exclusive focus on B2B (business to business) and B2G (business to government) payments.

EVO B2B understands the processes, security requirements and technical details needed for successful payment integrations. EVO is also experienced in providing card-not-present and e-commerce custom portal solutions.

Through a consultative approach, EVO B2B works closely with clients to learn about the intricacies of their business then offers solutions tailored to meet specific needs.

EVO B2B provides concierge-level service and support. We employ experienced and dedicated client service representatives who undergo frequent training to ensure they can respond to any question quickly and knowledgeably. You and your clients have 24/7 access to this attentive support team.

EBS PAYMENT INTEGRATION WITH THE EVO ORACLE ADAPTER

EVO’s Oracle Adapter integrates to Oracle Payments, the central payment engine of the Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS). The Adapter works seamlessly with all Oracle EBS modules involved with the payment process, including Accounts Payable, Cash Management and Receivables.

Integrated payments with the EVO Oracle Adapter optimizes your Oracle EBS investment by streamlining and automating payment processing while reducing the time, resources and errors associated with manual ledger entries.

EVO ORACLE ADAPTER FEATURES

  • Compatible with Oracle EBS versions 11i, 12.0, 12.1, 12.2.
  • Easy to install.
  • Java-based for easy maintenance and upgrades.
  • Supports credit, debit and purchasing cards for all major card brands.
  • Tokenization reduces PCI scope.

Technology That Automatically Lowers Processing Rates

EVO’s Oracle EBS integration includes Interchange Management® proprietary technology that ensures your transactions qualify for the best possible interchange rate. Every six months, the card networks – Mastercard®, Visa®, Discover® and American Express® – change their processing requirements and fees. It’s challenging to keep up, but failure to stay current significantly increases payment processing costs.

INTERCHANGE MANAGEMENT® AUTOMATICALLY:

  • Validates and corrects data.
  • Checks more than 600 interchange categories.
  • Monitors changes from card brands.

By taking the guesswork out of Level 2, Level 3 and large ticket reporting requirements, Interchange Management® saves companies an average of 37 percent on payment processing costs. Several EVO customers have experienced six- to seven-figure savings on processing fees.

HOW ORACLE IMPLEMENTERS BENEFIT BY WORKING WITH EVO B2B

  • Experience ease of implementation with the EVO Oracle Adapter.
  • Collaborate with a trusted, B2B payments partner with in-depth industry knowledge.
  • Offer significant cost reductions for payment processing.
  • Receive 24/7 access to a knowledgeable and attentive client services team.

Planning: 7 Key Components of a Successful ERP Project

by: More4Apps

Successful projects can be the norm, not an exception.
Here are some key success factors to help you out on your journey.

1. eXEcutive sponsorship

Foundations of an ERP project are clearly defined from the start. An engaged executive team is key from the outset. It has to start from the top.

2. Scoped and resourced project plan

Form a structured plan. Clearly document roles to form a skilled team with experienced business process leads, plus functional and technical people who understand your ERP software.

3. Keep it simple – minimize customizations

Customizations cost money to develop, test, train and support. They are a key reason for time and budget overruns. See if a prebuilt solution exists from a software vendor. It’s a good way to de-risk the project.

4. Requirements planning and solution design

Start your solution design at a high level with the steering committee. Then get into the detail with key process owners and your ERP functional experts. If you get this part right, you’ll end up with some great documented user procedures. These are invaluable for future projects, training and induction of new employees.

5. It’s all about the data!

End-user participation in data migration is key. Even a perfect delivery will fail without user buy in. Empower them, task them with owning the data. Provide users with tools to cleanse and load data easily. If you are on E-Business Suite (EBS), More4Apps products are specifically designed to help you with your data.

6. Test, test and test

Build a dedicated, accountable testing team with a clearly defined testing strategy. Perform multiple controlled data migration “rehearsals.” Testing gets cut when timelines get tight. Try to avoid this, you’ll only pay for your mistakes later and at a greater cost.

7. Transfer of knowledge

Going live is one thing, empowering end users and support staff is another. From the beginning of the project to the actual go-live, staff need to be kept informed and ideally involved in the project. Keep consultants on after going live, especially to help close the first month end.

A successful project is more than just delivery. It’s also post-implementation, where users have the bandwidth to perform their job, with quality data available in a timely manner.
