What if you could eliminate chasing down people for signatures on a contract?
What if you could ensure that contracts get renewed or resolved BEFORE they expire?
What if you had proactive reminders to work on a contract renewal in time to do it right and eliminate the fire drills?
Sounds like a perfect world, but it can be your reality. You just have to say goodbye to PO25 and step up to Infor’s Contract Management application.
With custom groups meticulously refined, async jobs humming error-free in the background, and standing with true artisanal pride at the resource updates you have just processed, you prepare for your once-a-fortnight processing: pre-payroll tasks. Although specific pre-payroll tasks can vary greatly across organizations, we will focus on two that nearly everyone will use: GTL and the deduction export.
As mentioned in Benefits Part One: Eligibility Made Easy, well-crafted benefit groups lay the foundation for success in maintaining your organization’s benefit plans week after week. Even if they aren’t perfect yet, that’s okay - understanding how benefit groups control application functionality is a battle you will appreciate later.

When I initially considered writing a blog about creating project success and avoiding common pitfalls, I recalled a Becker’s report, as well as many others, confirming that 70% of hospital strategic initiatives fail. I wondered how so many projects failed to meet defined goals and expectations. Who was steering or not steering the ship?
