Reducing complexity, facilitating collaboration, ensuring interoperability. EASY has identified these three trends as the most important enablers for business. These three objectives are in the product specifications of the new EASY ECM Suite. And they are the guiding principle behind the development of every EASY solution.
It depends on the interfaces
Why am I emphasising this point again? I want to take a look at the key link in this process. What do applications need to work together properly and to exchange data? And to do this seamlessly, without causing any stress for the user or administrator? Precisely: interfaces. And we are not talking about any interfaces here; instead we are talking about interfaces that reliably deliver what you expect them to.
A real-life example?
A nice example of the importance of interfaces: I’m sure you know the scenario whereby a sample audit sees a delivery receipt being discovered for which there is no invoice in the archive. The result: The auditor takes a closer look: After all, if there was one error, there are likely to have been many more. The book-keeping department may have to close up shop for several days as a result whilst an extensive company audit takes place.
Auditing acceptability as a reference
But how can this happen? Badly programmed interfaces are often the cause of problems like this. If a problem occurs when archiving an invoice and no archive document is generated as a result, a good interface will recognise this. It will not “rest” until the invoice has been audited acceptably. Bad interfaces are not so particular. For them, it is enough to have started the archiving process – regardless of whether it is successful or not.
All interfaces registered online
The good news: There are a large number of interfaces available for EASY solutions that have been tried and tested and that avoid precisely the scenario described above. To find out if there is an interface available for your ERP system, email application or other business software, all you need is a few clicks. EASY provides a list of all the available interfaces on the company website.
A strong overall package
The list is currently 70 strong. Each interface is accompanied by a short description as well as the contact details for someone to contact if you have any questions or wish to acquire the interface. Because: Only some of the interfaces were developed by EASY. The others are a result of development work by partners.
If you are now wondering whether there is already an interface for your solutions to link your ERP system to EASY INVOICE or EASY DOCUMENTS quickly and easily: You can find the complete list, which we are constantly updating, here. After all, EASY is always in motion!
