BPCS/LX Tip of the Week: Web Services

Web Services can be very helpful for LX users to obtain updated information directly from the source, for example:

  • LX users can use a web service to request a stock check on an item for which they are going to issue a purchase order. Users can get item availability and updated pricing before placing the order.
  • LX users can also use a web service to get real time shipping charges from UPS, Fed Ex, etc. Once the user selects the appropriate freight charge, it can be added to the customer order while the order is being placed over the phone.

Baan/LN Tip of the Week: Use of Calendars in LN

Enterprise Modeling Management module in Common: define the calendar of companies (company calendar) and enterprise units.

In the People module, you can link calendars to teams of employees. The Hours and Expenses module in the People package uses this information to get the default number of hours from the calendar lines.

In Common, you can link calendars to business partners and addresses; Procurement and Sales use this information when planning goods transfers.

Manufacturing: link calendars to work centers. The work centers' working times determine the available production capacity.

Warehousing: link calendars to warehouses.

Service: use calendars to specify when a cluster is available for servicing.

BPCS/LX Tip of the Week: At a Loss?

Loss of Key Experienced Personnel– More and more of the original “super users” have changed jobs, or retired. In their place are skilled individuals who may have been trained to execute specific tasks, but lack the experience required to respond to new and unplanned business needs and opportunities. As a result, decisions are made that may cause unintended problems. 

What is the best way to deal with this BEFORE the problem occurs? Read our blog to find out:

BPCS/LX Tip of the Week: Why Would You Buy a BMW, But Use a Scooter?

Congratulations! You bought that shiny, new car! It has all the features you can possibly want and goes a million miles an hour. It can take you anywhere your heart desires…….but you rely on a manual scooter to get you around. You know, the kind you had when you were a kid…BEFORE you could drive…before you could afford the BMW. Make sense? Uh... no.

You’d never do this, right? So, why are you doing this with the ERP system that runs your business? Why are you relying on spreadsheets and separate little Access databases to record and store the information that is the most critical to your business when you have an ERP system that is meant for this? Why continue to plod along at a snail's pace when you have the tools to take your business to the next level?

Your ERP system is your BMW. Use it. See what it can do for you. Think you’ve used it to its potential? Unlikely. We’ve helped customers breathe new life into their EXISTING ERP version all by unlocking functionality for them that was already there and ready to use! We’ve also helped by offering add-ons to the ERP that can make your productivity skyrocket.

Ask us how. We’ve got an extra set of keys to the BMW in case you lost yours.
