Did you know you can use e-mail to send and receive Infor ERP VISUAL documents?

In many Infor ERP VISUAL 6.5.x Applications, you can use the “Send To” command to electronically send VISUAL documents to another licensed user to share a document. Simply use the “Send To” option in a VISUAL application, like the Manufacturing Window to send a Work Order, in Customer Order Entry to announce a big sale, or in Purchase Order Entry to Request PO approval.

The “Send To” option creates a .VMX file which contains all of the application and document information and attaches it to a blank e-mail message. The recipient will be able to double-click the file attachment to launch the VISUAL application and open the document sent (must have correct Windows file associations and access to the database).

ERP Myth or Reality?

There is no best time to implement an ERP system...

This is a reality! While certain times may seem like they would be the ‘best time’ to implement, there is no best time. You may feel like now is not the best time because a large project or order, but the reality is, prolonging the implementation only prolongs the value that the ERP system could bring to your organization. If you think that now is a bad time due to the economy, well, think again. Implementing during an economic downturn not only frees up resources available to help implement ERP effectively, but also better positions you for business growth when the economy finally recovers. The key to success is to find out how to manage the ERP Implementation and run the business at the same time.

Did you know that you can Correct Posted Labor Tickets in VISUAL?

While you can't delete or change operation or indirect account information on a posted labor ticket in Infor ERP VISUAL, it is possible to set the hours, pieces and hourly rate to zero. This actually has the effect of voiding the ticket. A new ticket can then be entered with the correct data.
