  • Infor XA WEBseries – Why XA Manufacturers need WMS

    Improve order fulfillment by leveraging Warehouse Management System (WMS) for Infor XA.

    The goal of warehouse operations is to perfect order fulfillment: to deliver exactly the items a customer ordered, on time and with optimal efficiency. The warehouse module on your XA ERP system can help smaller warehouses achieve this goal. But this module has limitations that can make it smarter for companies with more complex operation to turn to the added capacities of an advanced warehouse management system (WMS).

    Learn and use System-Link quickly, manage transactions, and easily process data with spreadsheets, all with System-Link Toolkit.

System-Link Toolkit allows programmers and users to interact with System-Link without knowing XML and minimal RPG coding. 

    If you depend on offline loads to run critical business functions you can future-proof your investment and be able to perform XA upgrades with peace of mind with System-Link Toolkit. Join us for the webex to learn more about the many features and functions of System-Link Toolkit including:

    • Ability to use Excel spreadsheets for data input into XA, without additional programming.
    • Backed by Infor supported System-link processing for security, data input, and validation.
    • Easily create and group XML documents.
    • Enable users to easily see and fix problems, without IT involvement.
