It is also important to have a stepped description of the operational procedures, and to set up a menu of operators for specific roles. This allowed to conduct faster user training, reduce our dependence on personal skills and capabilities of staff. But the most importantly is that we have created a business processes map to support business in the 24 \ 365 mode".

Successful migration to new versions promotes that many large companies such as POLYSAN abandon outdated versions and move to Infor LN to automate key business processes."
