Two systems – one world. ELO for SharePoint combines the Microsoft SharePoint 2013 information portal with ELO, combining the advantages of a powerful ECM system with Microsoft's collaboration functions.
ELO for SharePoint enables you to leverage optimally the advantages of a powerful Electronic Document Management System and Microsoft's collaboration functions.
For example, the portal enables you to link project plans and schedules; but with ELO added to the mix, you also have at your disposal interfaces to third party applications such as ERP or e-mail systems. ELO integrates interfaces for virtually all of today's leading business applications such as SAP and Microsoft Dynamics, and also allows for (among other things) read-only archiving of ERP data.
ELO features all required functions for legally compliant long-term archiving. Documents that need to be retained can be filed directly to ELO without having to save the data to SharePoint first. This database can be set up to only contain documents and related data, which means ELO is able to replace the SharePoint libraries, keeping the latter manageable and speedy. Data can also be stored temporarily to the SharePoint database, with ELO importing the documents based on rules. The user can decide which documents are important to the business and therefore need to be retained. The workflow server functions in the standard ELO package ensure that even complex business processes can be implemented. The powerful workflow functions can be modeled easily via a graphical interface designer. Business processes can also be dovetailed into productive operation with SharePoint via the graphical workflow monitoring.
ELO also makes it possible to synchronize and replicate data between multiple locations. Intelligent replication mechanisms ensure that all documents created or modified at one location are instantly provided to all other team members via the SharePoint Server portal. This interaction between ELO and SharePoint therefore combines the unity of centralized operations with the flexibility of remote work.
