M3 BE v15 / 13.1

Infor has recently released M3 v 13.1 / BE v 15.  The release notes are all up on the InforXtreme documentation site.  Over the next few months I'll be working on a BE 14 -> BE 15 upgrade so I've been trawling through the release notes.  There's some interesting stuff there.  Highlights on a first read from a technology perspective are mashup / custom list enhancements and lots more programs supporting customisable Browse panels.

From a functionality perspective the extensions to the advance invoicing functionality look interesting, especially with the ability to enforce this and extend this into cashflow planning.  Lab Inspection approval at a Balance ID level is critically needed for the F&B industry so it's good to see it there.  Inbound transportation management is a good addition filling a hole in the M3 solution.  The API for GLS850 is well overdue filling an area where most sites have built custom solutions to solve.

There's lots of other interesting changes there and I'll review areas as I get to them in the coming months.
