Oracle EBS - ERP Solutions for SMBs What is Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS)? Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) is used to efficiently track transactions within an organization. Tracking and documentation help companies make smarter decisions. Oracle EBS is the second largest enterprise resource planning (ERP) product in the world, and SAP is its fiercest competitor. Oracle EBS consists of over 200 modules or business applications. Modules are divided or grouped into families or suites. Some of the most popular suites include Oracle Financials, Oracle Manufacturing, Oracle Human Resources and Oracle Supply Chain. Each of these four suites will be discussed in brief to inform business owners of the flexibility small and medium businesses have with Oracle E-Business Suite. Oracle Financials Oracle Financials applications ensure the company remains financially secure. Common applications found in this suite include: Cash Management, Payables, Receivables, Fixed Assets, Property Management, General Ledger and Treasury. These applications help corporations with risk management and also increase profitability. Business valuation is easier with Oracle’s Financials suite. Companies that employ Oracle Financials reduce unnecessary business losses by keeping track of all business transactions and implementing safeguards. Oracle Manufacturing (Discrete and Process) Oracle’s Manufacturing suite manages all aspects of the manufacturing process including: quality control, engineering, work orders, bill of materials, scheduling, product life cycle management and manufacturing flow. The warehouse management system coordinates and tracks the movement of goods through the entire process.
