backing out the originating entry and making
the necessary adjustments to a copy of the
original entry, with full audit trail support.

searches and simplify tasks with list-based

Provide employees with an interface that's tailored to their roles, with simplified navigation that shows buttons and paths only to those modules an employee is authorized to use.
Empower users throughout the organization with easy Web-based access to the specific business information and processes each user needs—right on their desktops.
