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!

  • Purging Benefits Data
    Every time an employee makes a benefits change, a new record is stored in the benefits table. Additionally, a new record is stored in the employee’s deduction master table for each deduction related to that benefit. If these records are allowed to accumulate unchecked, this can slow down payroll processing and even cause errors. To help alleviate these issues, we recommend running the BN430 benefits purge program.

  • Coding to the Inventory Account… from AP! #SupplyChainWeek
    It happens way more often than organizations realize. Invoices get coded directly to the inventory account – which is no Bueno when we are talking about a balance sheet GL account that is purportedly supposed to tie to a sub system (and that system is IC, not AP!) So why do we see directly Coded Invoices and Credits for Inventory Items in the first place? Don’t inventory items need to come through a PO to be received in as Inventory in the first place? Yes, they sure do!

  • 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.

  • Angell's Agenda: Is The Cloud Debate Over?
    I read an intriguing article recently by McKinsey & Co about the current state of IT. Their authors concluded that, "the cloud debate is over." I couldn’t agree more! In fact, my conversations with customers and prospects confirm this on a daily basis. What I’m experiencing is this: I don't know of a single corporate entity that doesn't have a hybrid cloud environment of some sort, with an eye on how to further leverage the economics, simplicity, and flexibility of the cloud consumption model.

    Lawson programs, especially batch jobs, can sometimes take hours to complete. In rare instances, a badly written 4GL batch job can even take days to complete depending on the number of records it has to process and how it goes about doing so. Depending on your skill set, you may be able to optimize the code directly and use a debugger to find out how to speed things up. But if you want some statistics about what the program is doing and a quick shortcut, then there’s a utility for that.
