J&M helps EPA improve compliance by helping enforce policies, enabling audits, and analysing expense trends in Oracle Fusion ERP.

Direct Credit Card Integration for corporate card expenses into the ERP Cloud Expenses module.

Business challenge

Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) has been using Oracle ERP & EPM Cloud for six plus years. The employees were using a basic solution provide by the card issuer to code their credit card expenses, and the Finance team would then have to manually reconcile these entries into ERP each month.

 

Solution

To integrate the corporate card expenses from the card issuer into the ERP Cloud Expenses module to improve compliance by helping enforce policies, enabling audits, and analysing expense trends.

Oracle Fusion Expense provides functionality to seamlessly connect car Issuers.  The Oracle Fusion Expense module has the flexibility to track the records Transaction-wise, Card-wise, or Processed File-wise. The Corporate Card Dashboard is the one place where you will find all the tracking or monitoring records, validation error details, activation, and Inactivation of cards, and Assigned or Unassigned cards. By accessing the dashboard Card Administrators track all errors and take action accordingly.

 

Result

Employees no longer have to enter credit card expenses in a different system to their cash expenses, but instead they use the Oracle Expenses for all their work expenses. This single module now provides EPA with increased employee productivity and greater control over cost management, allowing managers to quickly obtain key information required to audit or approve expense reports. Employees can now easily submit their expenses through online or mobile entry.
