I like that the system has a lot of possibilities. You can do your search in a lot of different screens, depending on what information you would like to see. I liked that it was linked to our scanning software and we could see images of invoices really quick. I also liked that data entry was fairly quick and easy in Lawson.
I disliked the limited options that involved paying contractors that require retainage being held. Lawson would round and I had to run a separate spreadsheet to keep track of the retainage held for each vendor-very time consuming. Also, there was no report that would automatically split a payment between different lines on a Purchase Order- I had to do it manually.
Also, there was no option to see how much money is left on the Purchase Order until an invoice was getting processed.
I didn't like that sometimes the information between different screens would not match.
All these issues were brought up to our consultant but were never resolved.
Keep track of your data outside of the system
I processed invoices through the Lawson system, and tried to find the most efficient way. I realized that there is a lot of work-around to get my job done.
