This is sometimes daunting for users to perform on their own so a trained Lawson professional is ideal to assist via a remote meeting like Zoom or Teams.

Organizations often have trouble staffing Lawson professionals (or they’re spread thin) and alternatively go with teams of Lawson consultants who offer managed services at a fixed rate. This can help larger organizations who have daily user issues and need a team of trained Lawson professionals to assist.
