(702) System-Link Toolkit using Excel Spreadsheets
Limited Capacity seats available

Guide’s System-Link Toolkit (STLK) is a highly-functional and easy to implement solution designed to simplify the user & IT experience with System-Link. SLTK includes a set of procedures that aid in the construction of the XML request and parsing of the XML response. Also, Infor has stated that offline loading will no longer be supported.

System-Link Toolkit is a robust solution that allows you to replace offline loads. We will demonstrate how you can use our System-Link Toolkit to map columns & rows in any Excel spreadsheet to XA business object data attributes for easy processing to create and maintain XA data from Excel. This can be used for all objects and transactions within the IDF framework (i.e. Powerlink). The toolkit uses System-Link to process the updates, therefore all security, maintenance history, and XA business logic is enforced.

Within the toolkit dashboard an end-user can determine if everything processed successfully. If there are errors they are clearly shown and the records in error clearly identified. No knowledge of programming or XML is required to upload the spreadsheets via our toolkit.

(722) Inventory Visibility – Extending the Life and Value of Your ERP
Limited Capacity seats available

ERPs are great for financials, engineering data management, MRP and order processing but by using TouchInventory to track and manage your inventory in real-time, your ERP outputs can be worth so much more whilst keeping your ERP vanilla. Most ERPs fall well short of true WMS performance, with inventory tracking capabilities being fairly cumbersome and only supporting the functionality that matches the physical processes companies have in place.

TouchInventory is a configurable inventory control system that tracks all forms of inventory, from raw materials to WIP to finished goods to shipments, and conforms to your business rules and physical operations while updating your ERP in real-time. Learn how your bottom line can be significantly improved with reductions in safety stock, increased stock turnover along with increased labor efficiency and improved customer service.

(724) Manual Processing: You Can Definitely Do It But You Can't Do It Indefinitely - Time is Up!
Limited Capacity seats available

During this session we'll explore the variables to evaluate your current EDI program. We'll look at alternatives, Total Cost of Ownership and expectations as well as common barriers to get your program into a future state that will improve your bottom line, competitiveness, and overall performance.

As our economy and manufacturing accelerate we will see demands for topline growth (with possibly lower margins) and at the same time requiring expense reduction to protect and improve the bottom line. It's definitely time to start and/or expand your EDI program to participate in the trends of the next several years.

UniLink has provided a Cloud solution for over 20 years. It is time tested, proven, and works seamlessly with your ERP system and is READY NOW, whether you migrate to the ERP Cloud, or stay on premise. Either way, the UniLink solution will provide you with the lowest TCO (total cost of ownership).
