Lawson Software has released a new enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, Lawson Business Intelligence 9.0, aimed at addressing the business applications needs of mid-sized government and education organizations–a group currently underserved by large ERP vendors such as SAP and Oracle, Lawson said.
Lawson Business Intelligence 9.0 helps government and school district administrators make better and faster decisions so they can improve operational performance, according to the company. The software’s business intelligence and reporting tools provide accurate, timely, and relevant information about HR, financial, and supply-chain operations through dashboards that are specific to each employee’s role, Lawson said. They also proactively “burst,” or send out, detailed monthly and quarterly reports that are customizable, delivering appropriate information to the right employees’ desktops with minimal administrative effort. In addition, the software’s automated workflow controls help ensure consistency, accuracy, and the timely completion of business processes, as well as compliance with all internal procedures.
“Mid-sized organizations need a faster and more efficient means of accessing their critical business information at a low total cost of ownership,” said Dean Hager, executive vice president and chief product officer for Lawson Software. Lawson Business Intelligence 9.0 “gives customers everything they need to improve business processes and drive better performance.”
