Is your Baan or Infor LN system STILL not integrated with UPS and FedEx?

Kathy Barthelt 0 1131 Article rating: 5.0

It's hard to find a manufacturing article, or talk to a manufacturer for that matter without hearing about the importance of efficiency. In fact, 92% of manufacturers reported that their most significant business imperative is improving efficiency, according to a major new report published by The Manufacturer and IBM. Improving efficiency cuts costs, improves throughput, and ultimately improves competitiveness.

One way to improve efficiency is to eliminate the redundant process of manually keying data from Baan and Infor LN to your third-party logistics systems such as UPS or FedEx. Third-party systems need to know what you want shipped, how it is being shipped, the weight, quantity, etc. Once the shipment is ready, the tracking number, freight cost, and other information need to be entered into Baan and Infor LN in order to process your sales orders and ultimately invoice your customer. This process is time-consuming, error-prone, and causes delays in shipping and invoicing.

Why waste time and energy when the entire process can be automated on-premise or cloud with RMCship?

RMCship provides a complete one-way or two-way communication channel between Baan IV, Baan V, and Infor LN to UPS Worldship & FedEx Ship Manager.

The Infor Development Framework (IDF) re-architects the way a user interacts with the application, providing an efficient, task-oriented process to view application information that is contained within Infor LX. IDF enables users to configure their view of the application data without modifying the core application and its supportability.

The examples below describe how users can configure their display of data and maximize overall productivity:

  • Arrange application information into multiple groupings and sequences that make sense for the job.
  • Filter or hide records to show only the information that applies to the job or task that the user is performing.
  • Customize the information for an individual user, a group of users, or all users.

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.
