* As further recognition for Oracle’s “Applications Unlimited” Program, Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL) today announced that Forrester Research, a leading independent research firm, has recognized both the Oracle(r) E-Business Suite Release 12 and Oracle’s PeopleSoft Enterprise Release 9 as a “Leader” in the June 2008 Forrester Wave: Accounts Payables-Electronic Invoice Presentment and Payment (AP-EIPP), Q2 2008.
* The report stated “AP-EIPP products streamline the invoice-to-pay (I2P) process by receiving invoices directly from suppliers’ systems, automatically validating them against supporting documents such as purchase orders (POs), and loading them into payment systems, ready to be paid.1”

With Oracle Procure-to-Pay, customers can help reduce costs to improve margins, streamline procure-to-pay processes to improve working capital, and drive compliance to optimize asset usage.
* PeopleSoft Enterprise Payables and eSettlements, both part of Oracle’s PeopleSoft Enterprise Financial Management family of applications, enables users to streamline the procure-to-pay, deliver operational savings and helps reduce liabilities by supporting asset and liability management objectives. The PeopleSoft Enterprise EIPP solution also helps ensure a quick return on investment by integrating a full procurement suite and providing supplier collaboration through a superior user interface.
* Forrester evaluated 10 vendors across 78 criteria, then grouped the vendors into 17 categories to assess strengths and weaknesses in three areas: current offering, strategy and market presence.
