DocuWare can automatically download data from an ERP system and use it for indexing. But what if the documents are in the cloud and the ERP is installed locally? It’s simple – just use DocuWare as a hybrid cloud and dip into the local database from the cloud. Here's an example:
The accounting department records an invoice with sender, document number, date and total in your on-premise system. The invoice is archived in DocuWare Cloud. With Autoindex, DocuWare can access the contents of the locally available booking record and automatically supplement it as index information in DocuWare – the user never needs to type in the index terms first.
This is possible through the Local Data Connector desktop app. It lets you connect a local database from the cloud to retrieve data.
This new component has been available since version 6.10 and combines the functionality of Autoindex with the advantages of DocuWare as a cloud solution – such as scalability, security and permanent accessibility.
The Local Data Connector is installed from DocuWare Desktop Apps. It’s one of several administrative apps to choose from.
