Infor LX & BPCS Tip: Infor ION - What is ION, and why do I need it?

George Moroses 0 4027 Article rating: 5.0

Infor’s Intelligent Open Network (ION) technology easily integrates Infor ERPs and third-party enterprise systems. ION is an advanced middleware cloud platform that provides the flexibility you need to make the most complex web of enterprise systems work together on-premise, in the cloud, or both. ION’s long-term sustainability will optimize your ROI, and with ION, one application can be upgraded, replaced, or even fail without taking the entire network down.

Benefits:

  • Faster integration and upgrade times
  • Access to real-time information
  • Reduced burden on IT
  • Immediate access to business services like reporting and mobility

For older BPCS installations that don’t use ION, Crossroads RMC has the expertise to build powerful adapters to allow your specific BPCS version to communicate and exchange information with virtually any sub-system that can import/export data.

Tips:  LX | BPCS | M3

Enterprise General Ledger (EGL) provides audit attributes to track journal entry changes and approvals.

To implement this enhancement, you can request and apply MR 81026.

This enhancement provides audit attributes for the last maintained user, date, time, and approval user, and date, and time on the Financial Journal Entry and Financial Journal Entry Lines. This audit function provides visibility to who and when the journal was last maintained and to who and when the journal was approved.

The programs or areas impacted include:

  • Financial Event
  • Financial Journal Entry
  • Financial Journal Entry Line
  • Financial Journal Entry Detail Line
  • Post Multiple Events

Did you know CLD provides you with the following benefits?

▪ You can journalize and post-transaction data from any third-party application or Infor LX subsystem to the Configurable Ledger (CLD).

▪ You can generate multiple journal entries across different charts of accounts, ledgers, and books within the CLD from one transaction line.

▪ You can automatically post transaction amounts across different books using an appropriate exchange rate between the batch transaction currency and target book currency.

▪ You can use validation reports to identify validation errors within the files that contain batch transaction data and then you can make any necessary corrections before resubmission.

▪ You can use standard CEA grouping and summarization options for journals created during Batch Transaction Processing.

▪ You can interface GLD journal entries into CEA for the BPCD version of Infor LX. This allows data to be interfaced into CEA without changing the way data is processed through Infor LX subsystems.
