PeopleSoft Inc., which provides application software for the real-time enterprise, has announced plans to certify Apple’s Safari Web browser.
Users of PeopleSoft applications will be able to take advantage of Safari’s features including SnapBack navigation that let you “step back” with a single click. The new tabbed browsing feature will enable users to access multiple PeopleSoft application pages in a single window, and that’s important in multi-lingual call centers where a customer service agent needs access to applications in more than one language on the same system, according to Rick Bergquist, PeopleSoft’s chief technology officer.
Safari browser support will be provided in the fourth quarter of the year. The move “deepens PeopleSoft’s commitment to the Mac platform and will complement its existing support for Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X,” Bergquist said.
Among the company’s solutions is PeopleSoft Strategic Sourcing, a collaborative solution designed to help organizations manage the bidding and negotiation process associated with the procurement of direct goods, services and large capital expenditures. It provides business management and workflow support for the source-to-settlement business process including commodity spend and purchase contract compliance; Request for Quote (RFQ); reverse auctioning with user-defined rules and auction types; analysis of multi-line quote response; and contract award and fulfillment.
