Advantage with JacanaForms
There are a number of important advantages inherent in the
- Predefined form templates over standard Infor allows users to get up
and running quickly and easily including:
- Customer acknowledgement
- Customer Quote
- Bill of Lading
- Packing List
- Debit Memo
- Purchase order
- IFM Vendor Checks
- AM AP Checks
- AM AR Statements
This list continues to grow. Importantly, the templates are available in
'overlay' and 'transformation' mode and are checked for compatibility
with each new release of XA.
- JacanaForms uniquely integrates with Info WorkPlace. For IWP sites,
this can be a major benefit as it simplifies creation of new outputs
with IWP using a special 'plug in' interface to JacanaForms Design to
provide added presentation quality.
This combination can be very powerful:
- You don't need to know data lengths and attributes as these are
already contained in the IWP data subsets
- You can massage the data before it is merged with the form e.g.
changing sorting and selection, creating work fields and totals,
changing field length and edit code, conditioning the data extraction.
This approach can in turn help in the more sophisticated area of dynamic
sub forms where output is conditioned by the data e.g. printing
exception fields in color, printing lines in different fonts or
languages, outputting differently formatted sections in the form etc.
- If the data is already present in an existing output NO changes are
needed to the 'core' XA application. Where new fields are required an
alternative to amending 'core' code or using SQL access as required in
other e-form solutions is to use IWP.
- JacanaForms comes with special 'service' program suites on the iSeries
and NT to ensure seamless operation and management of the data
extraction process on the iSeries through data / form merge on the NT to
printer output. Manual intervention is only required should a
JacanaForms report processing or printer hardware problem arise.
