Comments Off on Infor CRM(Saleslogix) v8.3.0 Update 01 & 02 Released



March 9th, 2016 by

Customers and Infor Partners alike attended a demonstration of Infor CRM v8.3 yesterday. Kevin Draggoo, Infor CRM Product Manager, announced the March release date of Infor CRM v8.3. He estimated March 18th but committed to the end of March. This version is packed with new features. Being a long time trainer of Saleslogix (Infor CRM) I get to hear feature requests first hand and some of the new enhancements in v8.3 have been on customer’s wish lists for many years. I thought I would provide a quick review for those who didn’t get to attend:

Import Engine – Infor CRM v8.3 provides the ability to import into Tickets, Accounts, Contacts, Leads, Users, Lead Sources, Opportunities, and Products. It will also contain the ability to do Bulk Updates to records. The fields are configurable through the Web Admin for each of the tables mentioned above. This has been a highly requested feature.

Notes/History Preview – The Notes/History tab will now display multiple lines of History with the details moved below the item rather than on the right side. It will preview 256 characters of text from the history record below the detail, with an option to ‘Show More…’ and see additional content. There will also be a Show/Hide feature.

Sales Orders and Quotes РQuotes have been separated from Sales Orders and are now their own entity. This was done to further connect CRM to ERP Back Office Integration. The Quote to Cash Cycle now includes Opportunity, Quote, Create Proposal, and Promote to Sales Order.

Back Office Extension – The Back Office Extension for ERP Integration is now a part of the core Infor CRM solution. The two-way integration includes Account/Contact, Ship To, Pay From, and Bill To. All two-way integrations will go through a certification process by the Infor ERP business groups.

Mobile – Mobile v3.4 will be released for v8.3 and will not be backwards compatible with other versions of Infor CRM. Offline Access is a huge benefit of this release of Mobile. It will also include the Quote to Order cycle with workflow for promoting items to ERP.

Xbar – Xbar v1.3 includes single install for Outlook Integration and Xbar. You can now associate Tickets and Opportunities to Activities. You can now complete an appointment in Outlook along with accessing details from Calendar items.

Performance Gains and Compatibility – Infor and Customer testing showing 85% faster view loads than v8.1 and most pages are loading in half the time of v8.1. Kevin from Infor said the speed was reflective of Saleslogix v7.54 days. Infor CRM v8.3 is also compatible with Windows 10, Microsoft 2016, and Windows 10 Edge Browser.

Web Admin – Even more admin functions have been moved from the LAN Administrator to the Web. This version includes things like Licenses, Customer Service Defaults, and Ticket and Defect Activity Rates.

Finally, the dates and location for Inforum 2016 were announced. Inforum 2016 will be in NYC from July 10 – 13th. You can register at and get early,early bird special which ends on March 24th.
