This diagram shows how PeopleSoft eProcurement integrates with other PeopleSoft applications.

PeopleSoft eProcurement integration with other PeopleSoft applications.

As a standalone product, PeopleSoft eProcurement facilitates the process of procuring and managing resources. As an integrated solution, it enhances the existing PeopleSoft Services Procurement, Catalog System, and PeopleSoft HRMS functionality.

PeopleSoft applications interact with one another, sharing the same relational data structures and many of the same core tables. If you are not ready to implement other PeopleSoft applications, you can use PeopleSoft eProcurement as a standalone product, interfacing it with your existing accounting and distribution applications. Because PeopleSoft eProcurement is part of an enterprise solution, it is designed for transparent integration with PeopleSoft Supply Chain Management, PeopleSoft Financials, and PeopleSoft Human Capital Management.

PeopleSoft Payables

The interaction of PeopleSoft eProcurement and PeopleSoft Payables data and processing enables you to match vouchers with all purchase order and receiver details. You can automatically generate debit memos for goods that are returned to a supplier.

PeopleSoft Asset Management

A direct link with PeopleSoft Asset Management streamlines the entry of asset information. Seamless interaction between PeopleSoft eProcurement, PeopleSoft Asset Management, and PeopleSoft Payables enables you to pass asset information, capitalize assets at point of receipt, process modifications to existing assets, and create work orders for maintenance of the asset. Requisitions and purchase orders can be created to acquire parts and services for specific work orders that are associated with the asset.

PeopleSoft Strategic Sourcing

PeopleSoft eProcurement integrates with PeopleSoft Strategic Sourcing to generate contracts and purchase orders. You create requisitions using PeopleSoft eProcurement to send out for bids. This facilitates the collaboration between buyers and suppliers of goods and services, and reduces costs by accepting competitive bidding for goods and services.

PeopleSoft Project Costing

PeopleSoft eProcurement creates requisitions based on project activity requests in PeopleSoft Project Costing and returns ordered material transactions to PeopleSoft Project Costing as committed costs.

PeopleSoft Services Procurement

Integration between PeopleSoft eProcurement and PeopleSoft Services Procurement enables users to have a single common interface to requisition both goods and services. A hiring manager can order a configured workstation and standard office supplies, along with the skills-based request, all from the same requisition.

PeopleSoft Inventory

Close integration between PeopleSoft eProcurement and PeopleSoft Inventory enables you to share common item definitions and set up items from one menu for both PeopleSoft eProcurement and PeopleSoft Inventory. Using the Quick Sourcer feature, you can create material stock requests to fill requisitions from inventory stock.

PeopleSoft Supplier Portal

PeopleSoft eProcurement integrates with the Supplier Portal through the dispatch process. Using the Supplier Portal, buyers can collaborate more efficiently with their suppliers.

PeopleSoft eSettlements

PeopleSoft eProcurement integrates with PeopleSoft eSettlements to enable suppliers to enter invoices against POs that have been generated from PeopleSoft eProcurement.

PeopleSoft Human Resources

PeopleSoft eProcurement incorporates an application message that enables automatic updates to the system from a PeopleSoft HRMS database. Relevant changes to employee data in the JOB record can result in the creation of new requesters in eProcurement. Changes to roles, departments, business units, and database access can also be updated.

PeopleSoft Order Management

When PeopleSoft Order Management requires that incoming or purchased items be reserved for a specific customer sales order, PeopleSoft eProcurement uses pegging functionality to directly ship the items to the customer, or to ship to an inventory location as reserved for the customer order.

PeopleSoft Purchasing

Close integration between PeopleSoft eProcurement and PeopleSoft Purchasing enables you to share common control data, such as item definitions for both PeopleSoft eProcurement and PeopleSoft Purchasing. It enables you to create requisitions, purchase orders, receipts, and other transactions that will be stored in shared tables. The combination offers a complete solution for direct, indirect, service, and project purchases in an integrated environment.

PeopleSoft Catalog Management

PeopleSoft eProcurement delivers a comprehensive integration to PeopleSoft Catalog Management. Catalog content may be aggregated from multiple suppliers and then loaded into the PeopleSoft Item Master table. This provides a uniform mechanism for ordering goods from multiple suppliers that would otherwise be represented in disparate formats.

PeopleSoft General Ledger

PeopleSoft eProcurement interacts with PeopleSoft General Ledger for budget checking and commitment control. With this integration, you can ensure that funds are available for requisitions before they are submitted.
