Where are you?

Wo seid Ihr?This is going to be a little rant. Since more than half a year Infor has a new Enhancement-Request-System online. Various customers and consultants go there and post stuff that’s indeed a constant annoyance in many projects.

This system has an option to vote for enhancement request, signalling Infor where the shoe really pinches.

Anyone with access to Infor Support should be able to access that web based software. So this should be a pretty large number of people, people knowing Infor LN and Infor LN projects.

And what happens? Nothing. There is just a bunch of people to be seen there regularily. Urgent, important, enhancement requests for stuff that makes people shake their head in every project (like the lousy contrast in LN UI) did not get more then probably ten votes.

Guys, this is not gonna work like this. A little bit more dedication, please. A little less of “my project is finally flying, for anything else I couldn’t care less”.  Too many people thinking that way is also a reason, why some projects don’t fly. Infor needs feedback, if the software is going to get better. They don’t have a second sight, magically knowing recurring implementation issues. And pointing Infor to those issues with informal communication is just not going to work, given the size of Infor. ERS is indeed the right place to go to. So: Whoever has access, please look over these enhancement requests and throw in your two cents. It’s probably two hours of work, but it’s worth it.

And for those of you, who don’t know where to start, here are a few proposals:


3179 – Longer item description
