  • Don’t miss registration for Infor Power Training and Winter Showcase
    This Friday February 24th registration will end for Infor’s Power Training and Winter Showcase taking place March 6th and 7th and then March 8th through the 10th respectively. The Power Training will cover Landmark Security, Process Automation, Technology Foundation, and Infor Security Services. These are some of the most requested training classes and they’re going to be led by some of Infor’s leading instructors. If you’ve had your eye on any of the courses, I can’t recommend strongly enough taking advantage of this opportunity. You get the entire course content condensed into two days which is really going to maximize the time you spend. The training will take place in Infor’s Educational Floor in their St. Paul headquarters which was just renovated and re-opened a couple of years ago, so the facilities are nice, new, and comfortable. I highly encourage you to check it out, especially since time is running short to sign up!

  • A Step in the Right Direction
    This past week, I spent three days in New York City at Infor’s Executive Offices. It was a great visit, and the weather ranged from 30 to 70 degrees, sunny and rainy, and ready to snow as I left. What diversity and what a time in the city that never sleeps. I attended Infor’s Inaugural HCM Partner Summit where they updated us on the latest products, strategy, and marketing in and around the entire HCM Suite. It was great to get a status update on the global payroll strategy and v11 Landmark Payroll: anyone interested in being a v11 Payroll Beta? We also got to hear the executive commitment around HCM product development, strategy, and where Infor is headed from Charles Phillips, Stephan Scholl, and Soma Somasundaram, who joined the Summit.

  • Perceptive Content AP eForm Custom Connector
    The AP Invoice eForm product for Perceptive Content offered by Lexmark Enterprise Software provides for a streamlined data entry process for many Accounts Payable departments. One pain point many people have experienced is its use of the “Virtual Tables”, a method used by this Perceptive eForm for storing Vendor, GL, and PO data. While these tables have satisfied the requirement of allowing the eForm to store and retrieve data for years, they aren’t perfect. Some of the issues we see include heavy resource usage and slow query speeds.
