We use Infinium FM (Financial Management) and several other Infinium
applications from Infor. The support is still very good. One nice
feature of the Infinium GL is that you can set it up to transcode all your
entries to other COA requirements--that gives the flexibility to handle
just about any reporting needs. Often after dealing with a support
incident, I'm asked if I want to fill out a survey. If I ever make any
even somewhat negative comment, I receive a phone call informing me of
what they're doing to improve the area I on which commented. I would
highly recommend at least checking out their product(s).

If I recall correctly, there was another company, Harris Data Systems,
which I think is/was from Florida. My recollection is that they
specialize in governmental software. I don't know if they might be a good
fit or not. Then there is Vormittag Associates. I don't how good a fit
they would be, but I've heard such good things about their software that I
would definitely at least check them out. (btw-The website for them is
VAI.NET. Steve Vai (a musician) has the VAI.COM domain.)

RE: iSeries based Accounting package

It has been my experience that the Accounting/Payroll/HR software from
Infinium (originally Software 2000, eventually bought by SSA Global, now
owned by Infor) was the best package, with the best support from the
developers, that I ever worked with. Don't really know how it is today.

Sadly, the company I am with now does not have this platform.

Subject: iSeries based Accounting package

The college I work for is in the market for a new accounting/payroll/HR
package and I would like to keep it on the iSeries (we currently run
Lawson on the iSeries). One of the reasons we are looking to replace
Lawson is our need to be able to produce reports that are different from
the for-profit world. We are required to produce FASB (non-profit) and
GASB (government) accounting reports and an EEO-6 report that is unique
to Higher Education. Most manufacturing software does not deal with
these reporting needs. There are no iSeries packages specific to Higher
Education but anything designed for any non-profit or government
organization should work for us. Can anyone point me in the direction of
a iSeries accounting package designed for this type of organization?
And it will also have to have a GUI front-end or there is no possibility
of it being accepted.
