Extend the Functionality of Your Infor ERP- Guest Blog by Aktion Associates

Posted on Tue, Jul 24, 2018 @ 04:33 PM

 

4 Top Rated Third-Party Apps: Extend the Functionality of Your Infor ERP

Big thank you to our guest blogger, Gary Kirstein, Supply Chain Division Practice Manager at Aktion.  He was kind enough to share his wealth of knowledge (40 years worth!) and provide insight and top picks into popular third-party solutions to extend Infor ERP.  

You’ve invested time, money, and resources in your existing Infor ERP. It works great, but you need to modernize your business. A proven third-party application can make all the difference.

Is your ERP at its Current Release?

The first and most important thing for anyone looking to get more functionality out of their current Infor ERP is to update to its current release. The functionality you’ve been looking to add may be included in it.

Adding Functionality: Third-party App Integration

Shipping solution, business intelligence (BI), customer relationship management (CRM), and document management, are a few of the third-party products that can add the functionality your business is missing.

 

A few of the third-party apps worth considering:

Shipping Solution:  Integrates multiple shipping types to find the best available by carrier.

  • Aktion Recommends StarShip for Shipping Solutions         StarShip Video

BI: Business-critical data available in real-time Dashboard or Report Views – i.e. Sales, Purchasing, Inventory and Financial Data.

  • Aktion Recommends MITS – Analytics & iReporting for BI MITS Video 

Document Management: Electronic storage/management of documents. These include system generated documents or reports and/or scanned external documents/reports. 

UnForm Video

  • Aktion Recommends UnForm Document Archive Manager for Document Management 

CRM: Maintain relationships with customers, prospects, sales representative, and management teams. Integrate with your back office solution for a complete collaboration environment.

  • Aktion Recommends Infor CRM for CRM                                 Infor CRM Video

 

Is it Time to Replace?

If an ERP installation falls into one of three situations, an ERP upgrade should be considered.

  1. Doesn’t Meet Your Needs Anymore – If upgrading your legacy ERP to its latest release doesn’t give you the functionality you desire and if you have to add multiple third-party applications, then a replacement effort should be considered.
  2. I Want to Move to the Cloud – If you’ve been considering an off-prem ERP solution then you’ll want to investigate the many benefits of implementing a Cloud-based solution.
  3. Mobility – Adding third-party applications may help with both responsiveness and mobility but, it will never be a true web-enabled ERP solution.

Demystifying USPS Shipping Rates with StarShip Software

Posted on Tue, Jun 12, 2018 @ 05:29 PM

  

Our Pitney Bowes Shipping Software Integration Boosts Shipping Efficiency
 
 
Let's talk about the facts. The United States Postal Service (USPS) was founded in 1775. They played a crucial role in the foundation and expansion of our country. Over the last 200 plus years, they have experienced some growing pains, especially related to tracking packages and many competitors have also emerged. Thanks to the Amazon effect and eCommerce boom, those days are over. Now there are tons of shipping options but USPS is back on top for many businesses and people are talking about it. They are the #1 delivery partner for Amazon, eBay, Etsy, PayPal and many other major online shopping companies. 

Through our partnership with Pitney Bowes and Visible Supply Chain Management, we are able to offer an easy and cost-effective alternative to ship your packages. There are a lot of great benefits: 

     ♦  No additional residential or accessorial shipping charges

     ♦  Free pick up with no minimum quantity (24 hours notice)

     ♦  Delivery to all 50 states which means no rural or extended area surcharges

     ♦  Scan based returns– can be used in conjunction with outbound UPS or FedEx shipments

     ♦  Free boxes + APO/FPO shipping

Our partnership with Visible Supply Chain Management; a rate provider with over 25 years of supply chain management experience, provides StarShip customers with discounted Priority and Express Mail rates for domestic and international shipments. Significant cost savings can be found for packages under 20 lbs!   Interested in seeing if you could be saving with USPS? Contact us to get a free shipping analysis:

Pitney Bowes & USPS Automated Postage Verification (APV)

Posted on Fri, Feb 23, 2018 @ 01:38 PM
 

Last year, the U.S. Postal Service implemented Automated Postage Verification, which automatically evaluates dimensions, weight, package types and zones during processing to confirm the correct postage amount. If the calculated postage differs from the postage paid for the shipment, USPS notifies Pitney Bowes of the discrepancy.

On March 3, 2018, Pitney Bowes will begin applying postage payment adjustments for overpayments and underpayments to your pre-paid postage account. We strongly encourage all shipping managers to learn about the root causes of postage adjustments and how to avoid them.

 ENSURING ACCURATE POSTAGE

 


3 Common Postage Errors (and how to avoid them)

  • Weighing items incorrectly - Weigh your item and round up. USPS rounds up to the next pound or ounce.
  • Exceeding weight limit for mail class - For example, First-Class Package service can only be used for packages under 15.999 oz; anything over the weight limit must use Priority Mail.
  • Entering wrong package dimensions - Measure your package and enter the length, width and height into StarShip.

Learn more about USPS Automated Postage Verification along with steps to ensure accurate postage.
