Next Generation UX with Touch for EBS 11.5.10 | R12.1.3 | R12.2
We offer Touch Skins for E-Business Suite that use the same Custom Look and Feel (CLAF) Technology that our standard EBS skins are build with, but with additional code to improve the UX/ UI on different devices. This means you can use Touch skin across all your Oracle Application Framework (OAF) pages, and on all types of devices e.g. Desktops / Tablets / Mobiles.
- Supports any mobile/tablet device
- Supports any e-Business Suite process
- Standard CLAF technology (no customizing)
- Replaces need for app development and integration
- Any Design (Your Brand!)
What is a Touch Skin?
Touch Skins use a similar concept to "Responsive" web design.
Effectively we can style each page component and page layout to render differently when viewed on a mobile device
By applying the same responsive styling to all components and to the page layout, we can optimise the exact same OA Framework page for use on mobile devices. We can then supplement the skin or individual OA Framework pages with additional mobile features such as icon navigation and slideout menus.
You can then deploy the skin across E-Business Suite using the Profile Option 'Oracle Applications Look and Feel' at Site / Server / Application / Responsibility / or User level.

Why Choose Touch?
Oracle as with other ERP providers have recognised the importance of the mobile-friendly ERP and have been keen to improve their offerings in their future enhancements, such as Oracle Mobile Apps, Fuse Simplified User Interface (Fusion), and Peoplesoft's New Fluid UI. However, while these solutions may be useful to some customers, they are generally restricted to a limited transaction scope and aren't available unless you have hosted / latest software versions. They also won't be able to handle any existing custom processes or page customizations.

Touch skins take a bit longer than standard skins so typically take 3-4 weeks!
Once we develop a skin, we then ask customers to test it and feedback if they want any changes. Some customers are happy with the first version, others require several iterations until they are 100% happy. Ideally you should aim for a 2-3 iteration cycle, but we don't charge extra if it takes longer.
Typically expect around an 8-10 week period between project start and go-live.
Our Touch skins are priced according to scope so please contact us to find out more.
