New Business Software Integrates Lawson, Infor Technologies

Lawson Software has introduced Infor10 Lawson S3, a new application which marks the integration of Infor and Lawson technology and products. Infor acquired Lawson four months ago. Now part of the Infor10 product family, Lawson S3 10 provides a simpler user interface, more industry-specific functionality and greater agility, according to the vendor. It also includes a mobility platform which speeds up the flow of information and work through Mobile Inbasket, Mobile Requisitions and Mobile Employee applications. Lawson S3 10 offers two choices for the user interface: Lawson Smart Office, designed for Lawson "power users," and Infor10 Workspace, a thin-client UI for typical business software users. Lawson Smart Office focuses on data and business events, delivering contextual data to users when they are making decisions. Organizations can create a true "social enterprise" by incorporating collaboration tools with the look and feel of consumer-style social-network applications, Lawson said. Additional capabilities of the new tool include enterprise financial management, supply-chain management and human capital management. Enhancements to Lawson's industry-specific application suites are focused on the vendor's healthcare and public sector applications.
