Infor EAM Enables Your Business Processes
The pattern is familiar to anyone who has ever been involved with a software project.
You source, buy and install the software. Your team is chosen for configuration, special technical tasks, and end-
Except that the software isn't delivering the results management expected, and daily tasks have moved from difficult (pre-
The key ingredient missing from this recipe is a clear direction set by a concise set of business process charts, and a set of charts everyone can agree on.
Software in and of itself is not a process, even if you can setup workflow and authorizations.
Your team must work together to identify needed processes, design and document new processes, and deliver a cohesive document for use as a blueprint for configuration.
At the beginning of all software projects, and even at the start of sub-
With Infor EAM you need to identify all areas affected by the software, including:
Once you identify processes affected by Infor EAM, the work for your team really begins -

TEAM INVOLVEMENT IS A MUST
The key to success with a project team is pulling together the right people. This may seem like a silly observation, but many companies simply put people on a team because “they are available”.
When the project plan is being put together, a team must also be assembled. This team needs to include representatives from all areas directly affected by Infor EAM. This could include:
The team will need a leader, such as a Project Manager, and must work together towards a common goal.

EAM Solutions can guide your team through this process. Our consultants work with a proven method and toolset to help customers build and implement effective business processes. In turn, your team gets credit for helping make business more efficient, and Infor EAM effective and easy to use.
