There is something you can do about it!

Infor LX & BPCS Tip of the Week: Installing WebTop Over LX

George Moroses 0 2249 Article rating: 5.0

If you plan to use Infor WebTop, the WebTop version 4.7 or above is required when running LX 8.4. Also, acquire and install the latest WebTop 4.7 patches from Infor Xtreme prior to running LX WebTop. WebTop 4.7 can be applied to your existing environments before you install 8.4.0. If this is completed before installing LX 8.4 then the LX install will take care of much of the Webtop server configuration automatically, including installing the LX Webtop metadata, updating WEB_ENV, and including the Webtop Platform library in the INLIBL data area as part of the environment setup. If you choose to install WebTop after the LX 8.4 installation is completed, the “Infor LX 8.4 Webtop 4.7 Configuration Guide” will guide you through all the configuration steps to set up Webtop for your LX environment.

In August, BISCO, Inc. based in IL went live on their new IBMi 9 with Infor LX. This project included a dual migration from IBMi 7 to IBMi 9 and an upgrade from LX 8.3.4 to LX 8.3.5 using webtop. The Crossroads team led by Tim Baker, made this all happen in just a little over a month. BISCO will immediately move into the next phase of the project which will focus on an implementation of the Avalara Tax Interface to LX.

As stated by BISCO’s Senior Manager of Information Technology, “I want to express our complete gratitude for what a great job Crossroads RMC did in helping us get our BPCS LX Upgrade up and running. We were struggling to get over that hump and just couldn’t seem to bring this ERP to life… Crossroads RMC came in and saved the day, a fantastic job and the effort put forth was 2nd to none. Big Shout out to Tim Baker!!  I would highly recommend Crossroads RMC to any company.
