The Best BPCS | Infor LX Financial Reports to Analyze Company Performance

George Moroses 0 1630 Article rating: 5.0

You know what ERP data you need to analyze your company’s financial health, but sometimes it is a struggle to get that data in a format that is meaningful. Here are some reports in BPCS & Infor LX which you may find useful.

As is the case with most ERP reports, with each version progression from the earliest versions of BPCS to the latest version of Infor LX, there are improvements in selection criteria and report content. Some may require some setup and others may require some formatting if you would like to export them to Excel. Contact me if you have questions or need assistance.

Everyone understands the importance of ERP reporting, but what if you’re relying on the wrong reports?

Having access to ERP data in a usable format allows for a common understanding and the ability to take action based on what the data is telling you. What do you do if the way your data is presented is not useful, or flat out wrong?

How can your reports be wrong? That would mean that the data is wrong, wouldn’t it?
Not necessarily. Reports are wrong because they are stagnant. They represent the truth ONLY at the moment they are run. If that data is shared with others within your organization, the information the report(s) is trying to convey has already changed. Decisions are then made on bad information.

What is preventing you from upgrading your Infor LX or BPCS ERP System?

  • You cannot define customer-defined fields for tables within Tools (the tl and tt packages).
  • External integrations.....

To clear out the balances of outstanding invoices that will be added into new companies or moved into new companies, credit notes could be created for them and have them linked to all the invoices of one customer/supplier.
