Office Link – Your link to Microsoft products
Make your business more productive and profitable with Office Link – our custom-programming
service that lets you exchange information between your Epicor system and Microsoft
applications. You can do this unattended or with just a touch of a button. No more
uploading and downloading ASCII files, no incompatibility problems – just a seamless
integration of data…online and in real time.
Here's a taste of what Office Link can do for you
- Microsoft Word – touch a hot-key and a Word template opens and loads with database
information. Use it for everything from quotations to engineering documents and
drawings to reports – and never rekey information again. We also have developed
client and server based forms printing applications to replace the standard product
sales orders, purchase orders, packing slips and others using this technology.
- Microsoft Excel – tap a hot-key to load database information into an existing workbook,
spreadsheet or graph. Plus, with appropriate security clearances, you can automatically
update changes made in Excel back to your Epicor database.
- Microsoft Outlook® – fax or email transactions, documents and messages directly
from your ERP system using any workstation to expedite requests. Examples of what
you can automatically send to your customers, suppliers or employees include:
- Purchase Orders
- Change Orders
- Order Acknowledgments
- Shipping Notifications
- Material Shortage Notifications
- Microsoft PowerPoint® – click on any hot-key to transfer data directly into
PowerPoint and create color graphics, charts and presentations.
Database connectivity – Your link to multiple databases
We can set up your system so you can make online, real time changes from your Epicor
system to any database, including Microsoft Access, Microsoft SQL Server™,
Oracle® and others. There’s no extra work on your part – when you make changes
in any database, those changes automatically happen in the other databases you use.
