System-Link is Infor’s only supported solution to read/write data to/from the XA database. Offline Loads are going away in any future PTF release (it has already begun in XA R9), and System-Link is the only Infor supported solution to replace that functionality. System-Link and XML can be hard to learn for those coming from an RPG background.
Guide Technologies’ System-Link Toolkit XA Import Tools is the ability to seamlessly replace Offline Loads now that Infor has discontinued support. 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 knowing you have a solution. Companies want to use Excel spreadsheets for data input to XA, with SLTK that now becomes easy to setup and control using standard, Infor supported Systemlink processing for security, data input, and validations.
