Dear Paul,

Our Infor CRM Business Administrator is no longer with our company.  We need to get our new administrator up to speed quickly without disruption to our Infor CRM users.  What topics do you recommend be covered to train our new administrator?

Great question and we have a ready answer.¬† We can schedule Infor CRM Administration training almost anytime.¬† The roles that ‚Äúmake‚ÄĚ up the administrative tasks in the system range in complexity from technical administrator, data steward, power user, to a business administrator.¬† I even have one company where the President is able to perform the administrative tasks with ease.¬† We can help you get to the level that you want to obtain from basics to expert.

Here are the main subject topics to get a new administrator running at a basics level:

  • Administrative Overview
  • User Management and Security
  • Team Management and Security
  • Pick List Management
  • Group Management
  • Data Management

Infor CRM Training for Administrators

First, a good overall review of the administrative tools (LAN and/or web) with an explanation of the tools, and associated roles of the tools, is important.

Next, user management and the various tasks (add, edit, retire, etc.) is a fundamental training area.  This subject includes focus on creating and managing user profiles with an emphasis on security.

Team Management, if you’re using teams, would be an important subject combined with security.

Pick list management and a review of data management principles that corresponds with the proper management of pick lists would be next.

Lookups, groups, and various management tasks are important data segmentation subjects.  In the web, filtering data and managing the data for users.  Slicing and finding data easily is key to user adoption.

Data management tasks is a nice optional learning area.  Subjects covered here are developing training and policy to prevent duplicate data and how to update mass data when changes occur in your company.

There are many other subjects that can be covered but these are the basics to get you moving in the right direction.

Training is an important part of any information system and CRM is no different.  Make sure you provide the training to your administrators and they have the skills and experience to help your front office employees be successful.  Ultimately, we are here to serve you and empower your employees to serve your downstream customers.
