"Every generation imagines itself to be more intelligent than the one that went before it, and wiser than the one that comes after it."
--George Orwell
Welcome to the latest issue of The LawsonGuru Letter, a free newsletter providing provocative commentary on issues important to the Lawson Software community.  The LawsonGuru Letter is published by--and is solely the opinion of--John Henley of Decision Analytics.

Examiner for Lawson S3
Does your Active Directory match your employee data in Lawson S3 HR ?
  • Updates Lawson S3 HR email addresses from Active Directory
  • Updates Active Directory attributes (employee name, job title, supervisor/manager, work location, phone numbers, etc.) from Lawson S3 HR

New Release available, now integrating Lawson S3 HR with Microsoft Active Directory

Contract Management - Rebates
Does anyone use the rebates option in Contract Management? We have only been using CM minimally for about a year but would like to start using other functions it offers. Tips, suggestions, or any info that can be provided about the rebates section or anything in CM, would be great. Thanks! Read More...
