An Infor LX upgrade in a month? Crossroads consultants make it happen!

George Moroses 0 205 Article rating: 5.0

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.

The M3 Web Services Grid Management pages provide some basic administrative capabilities. For example, you can view deployed web services, check the server setup for errors, do some basic configuration management, and manage web service security.

To create your own web services, you must also install the M3 Web Services Designer component, which allows you to design, model, deploy, and test web services.

What will you do when your ERP is no longer supported in 2021?

This is a confusing time for many companies with respect to their ERP system.

"Will I still be able to run my current version?"
"What happens if I want to stay on my version?"
"What options do I have?"

Crossroads RMC is here to help you sort through the confusion and get you to a place where you feel confident about your ERP future.

Let's get started with how we can help. I want Crossroads RMC to…

  • Conduct an Infor ERP Utilization Review – Should I consider moving to the latest version of LX in the cloud, or on prem? If I don’t, what are my options?
     
  • Set up an Infor ERP Demo System – I want to give my employees a chance to try out the latest version to see if it would be of benefit.
     
  • Train My Employees – I want to ensure that we’re operating based on best practices.
     
  • Integrate My ERP to External Systems – My company uses separate systems that don’t talk to one another and that is really inefficient.
     
  • Brainstorm With Me – I’m not sure what to do. I need to talk through some scenarios with someone who has been there, done that.
     
  • Support My Users – I’m short-staffed. I may upgrade, or I may stay where I’m at. Either way, I could use someone to handle our ERP issues. Please help!

Frank Petrasio 0 420 Article rating: 5.0

The Start page is the initial page that you will see when you open M3 H5.
Start pages provide a way to organize and keep track of tasks and programs. It contains widgets, which can give you quick access to the different features available in H5. The type of widgets to be added, their arrangement, and their size can also be customized.

The Start page can be accessed by clicking the home tab located below the Favorites menu. Start pages are available in both Enterprise and Foundation editions. However, H5 Foundation users will only see a static start page that cannot be configured or changed.

A Start page administrator can configure a default start page or a set of start pages for specific users or groups.

Tips:  LX / BPCS / M3

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.
