Oracle took another step forward in its efforts to bolster its cloud offerings Monday with the launch of two new products designed to help companies conduct their entire order-fulfillment processes in the cloud.

Oracle Order Management Cloud and Oracle Global Order Promising Cloud are both extensions of the company's Supply Chain Management Cloud and aim to provide modern order-management, visibility and fulfillment capabilities.

The new Order Management Cloud focuses on order capture and fulfillment with the goal of improving order handling. Among the potential benefits for users are centralized order monitoring and the ability to proactively manage order exceptions. Companies can also define, implement and maintain their own fulfillment policies without the need for technical programming tools, Oracle said.

The new Global Order Promising Cloud, meanwhile, helps companies source and schedule orders so as to minimize fulfillment costs and maximize customer service. It matches demand with available inventory and inbound shipments, for example, taking all potential supply sources into account. It can also handle most orders in a fully automated fashion, enabling companies to enforce corporate fulfillment policies while saving money on administration, inventory and logistics, Oracle said.

Both new products are integrated with Oracle's existing cloud offerings for enterprise resource planning (ERP) and the "configure, price and quote" (CPQ) part of the sales process. Taken together, they create a complete "quote-to-cash" offering that covers the sales process all the way from price quotes to revenue management and can help break down silos separating companies' sales, fulfillment and finance organizations, Oracle said.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
