• Increasing Efficiency with EDI Image Generation
    We recently covered how you can enhance the Infor process with Yoga Content. Another guest under RPI’s procure-to-pay umbrella is our vendor portal solution made specifically for EDI image generation. EDI is a great way to handle high volumes of both purchase orders and invoices, but with many solutions it can be difficult to figure out what happened to any given record if something goes wrong.

  • Successful CloudSuite Projects Start with Engaged Leads & Users
    Recently, we discussed why it is so important to choose the right super users for a GHR Payroll implementation. These are the people who should be involved in design meetings from the beginning of the project. Doing this ensures that everyone is on the same page and that there are no surprises once we get to parallel testing the supervisor structure. If you're using a time to tenant system, something to keep in mind is to make sure that the supervisor structure is accurate for time approvals. Th...

  • Understanding the Technical Backend of CloudSuite Implementations
    Let's talk about the technical backend and types of CloudSuite implementations. Some organizations are hesitant about a move to the cloud because they aren't in control of the underlying hardware or data center that they’re running. It feels like there's a bit of a risk in not managing and owning all the infrastructure. However, there's a false sense of security that can come with this attitude, because even organizations that have invested in a robust disaster recovery plans have discovered ...

  • Enhancing the Infor Process with Yoga Content
    Our main goal with Yoga Content is ensuring our product offerings are synergizing together and serve more than one purpose. It's not just an AP automation tool with OCR invoicing because we expanded to provide the entire procure to pay and bring in automation steps throughout that entire process. All of this complements the Infor solution – we're not trying to redesign anything that tool is doing, but there are additional areas that we can enhance to help make sure the Infor process is efficie...

  • Establishing your Essential Data for a Clean Conversion
    During CloudSuite implementations in the past, several clients have asked us to bring all of their historical data over to the new system. Obviously this is possible, but it's definitely not our recommended best practice. You can bring as much data as you want, whether the cost/benefit makes sense. If you bring over every piece of data from your old system just in case of a potential reference someday, then you’re just muddying up the reporting waters. We always have this conversation as part ...

  • Yoga Content: A SaaS Solution with Out-of-the-Box Infor CloudSuite FSM Integration
    When it comes to AP automation solutions, there are a variety of options available to choose from. Some of these are cloud-hosted software, which is not necessarily the same as cloud-native, and requires additional administration that your organization may not have expertise in. A lot of these applications were written for client server-based architecture, meaning that larger software companies are basically hosting their legacy systems in the cloud, which is not ideal.

  • Other Considerations before Embarking on a CloudSuite Implementation
    Last week, we discussed the importance of identifying the scope and timeline roadmap for your organization by conducting a pre-planning exercise. The same careful attention should be applied to any customizations, as well as any big-ticket reporting or analytics needs that are mission critical. Hopefully, these will be out-of-the-box from CloudSuite, but you want to understand the implications if you're going to need to work through them during the project.

Now, let’s discuss what this contract might look like for a large healthcare organization who is also relatively new to us.

  • Choosing the Right Functional Team Leads & Super Users is Crucial for a Payroll Implementation
    For an organization going through a GHR payroll implementation, ensuring the right people are at the table doing the work is so crucial to the success of their project. Their hands-on involvement will help you immensely during the design phase since they are familiar with the pain points and might have an idea about improving your daily business processes. Aside from having enough resources involved and making decisions, they need to have the capacity to take on what is required of them for the ...

  • The Business Case for Moving to the Cloud
    Defining the business case for your organization to move onto a cloud based ERP system is not easy. The first thing you need to realize is that this type of project isn't driven solely by IT - all business areas that will be impacted by this project should have a seat at the table. This is when you start talking about where does Lawson (or your current system) meet your needs, and where does it fall short? Are there any outstanding pain points with the business applications that are in place tod...
