ERP to ECM Connectivity

ERP, LOB and Mainframe systems are the backbone of many typical businesses. These costly and complex solutions produce the majority of data and transactional documentation in an organisation, but they are difficult to access. These ‘closed’ systems present many challenges when outputting information and transactional documents. Despite advances in technology, working from an ERP system makes printing, mailing, posting to the web and connecting to EDI still difficult. This is where advanced middleware software such as Connect becomes so valuable.

Enterprise Resource Planning

Once transactional documents have been produced by an ERP system, the challenge is how to get them back into an ECM and extract value. Because Connect pulls information from many print streams, the data is indexed and then intelligently placed back into the ECM. In this manner workflows and approvals can now be triggered with ease, allowing for a variety of business processes to be automated. Thanks to the power and simplicity of Connect, even e-transactional documents can be made available to the ECM.

In effect, Connect is integrated with both the ERP and the ECM technologies to create seamless and true multi-channel communication for the enterprise. With this functionality many benefits are derived, processes are automated, the customer experience is enhanced, and the bottom line of the business is improved.
