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. 
Credit Card Processes
Any suggestions on how to import credit card transactions? We currently upload every credit card by month separately as a Journal Entry. And the more we grow, the more users receive credit cards and it came up in discussion - how do other companies handle their credit card purchases? From what I've seen there's a P-card module? We currently don't utilize it. How useful is the module? Or does anyone use an external software to track their detail and upload it into the GL? Or is a good method doing it by journal entry directly into the GL?

Epic OpTime
I am looking for information on Epic OpTime and how it relates to Lawson. We are using the Cloverleaf clinical bridge to send product information to Epic Optime (IC524). The issue we are having is we are being told by the EPIC team that if we update a description or manufacture number on an item, when it comes accross the interface and updates the EPIC "SUP" record it reopens all closed patient records that have that item and attempts to rebill. Is anyone else facing this issue? Is there a setting in EPIC that controls this? Read More...

Daily Check List for Supply Chain
We are 105 days on Lawson/Infor. I became full time on the project 90 days before go-live, so my main goal at that time was conversion and not learning task (if that makes any sense). We have implemented Supply Chain and Finance with HR/PR in the future. Today I have been tasked with creating Procedures for these two (SC/AP) areas. Before I begin creating, I wanted to reach out to see if anyone had a Daily Check List by Role, or any writing procedures we could follow/study. With Lawson many of our procedures have changed and the user are having a hard time acknowledging. I am hoping to not have to reinvent the wheel. Any help, guidance and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Read More...
