Welcome to the IDM with Infor FSM blog series.
In this series we are going to dive into how Infor Financials & Supply Management leverages Infor Document Management and show how they can be used in concert to store, create, and capture documents. Each article will provide a short description and a concise 3-5 minute video demonstrating the feature in focus.
The first parts of the series will show how IDM is configured for use with Infor Financials & Supply Management. We will also show how documents are manually uploaded through Infor FSM and introduce the IDM mobile application.
The middle part of the series will focus on creating good-looking documents using Infor’s tooling that comes with Infor OS. Infor FSM provides documentation and starter templates that can be used to produce over 30 unique and attractive document types including invoices, purchase orders, and checks. This section of the series will also introduce the IDM Microsoft Word plug-in and show how it can be used to develop and test custom document templates. We will also cover how to setup check printing and automatically distribute select printed documents.
The series will close out with posts covering the integration between Infor FSM and Infor Capture. This new integration will allow for touchless scanning, classifying, and processing of invoices.
