Posted by ManageForce | 8/31/15 6:46 AM

Payroll processing electronic software updates (ESUs) are already available, and 1099 ESUs are expected in mid-December.  


  • Are you ready to process 1099s in JD Edwards?

  • Are you ready to process W-2s and T4s in JD Edwards?

  • Do you know how to navigate the year-end procedures in JD Edwards?

  • Have you explored whether Oracle’s new BI Publisher for JDE is a good fit for this year’s form creation? 

ManageForce can help you answer these questions, eliminate the guesswork, and alleviate the time crunch. Our Oracle experts make JDE year-end processing a walk in the park—from planning to execution, and everything in between. As with any project, we’ll sit down with you to determine business drivers, scope area, inclusions, and any exclusions, based on your needs. As part of defining scope area, we’ll explore:


  • Application configuration and support

  • Technical considerations, including installation of supporting ESUs

  • Functionality and security to ensure employees are able to perform and access the information and reporting needed

  • Testing of the application

  • Training and end-user documentation 

  • Custom modifications, if needed
