A connector allows you to communicate with an existing backend application,
such as SharePoint, OneDrive for Business, NetDocuments, M-Files and many more.
It is not meant for sending information only, but also to receive information,
making two-way communication possible. This allows the user to interact with the
backend application, from a client that is not supported by that application,
such as an MFP or Outlook e-mail client. Not only will this makes the capturing process
easier for the user, it also helps to reduce time, cost and logistics.
For example, if a document from an MFP or e-mail needs to be sent to an accounting
application and a DMS, the document will need to be stored first on the drive.
Then you will need to find a specific record (e.g. a customer) on the accounting application,
and drag the document to that location. Then you will need to repeat the same process on the DMS.
With ScannerVision and Aivika connectors you are able to send the same document from an MFP or
e-mail to both accounting application and DMS in one single step, eliminating intermediate steps
and redundancy, while automatically sending notifications to stakeholders if required.
Utilizing our connector, a law firm with multiple offices in the U.S.
has been eliminating middleware solution and directly scan to NetDocuments. One of the
largest non-food retailer in South Africa has been using the SQL connector to scan directly to their
custom business application. While a New Zealand government agency continues expanding their scan
capabilities on their devices.
No two organizations are the same
If two companies are using the same application from one vendor, it does not mean that both
environments are exactly the same. As an example, one SharePoint environment can differ greatly from another.
This is the reason that we design all our connectors with flexibility in mind, to accommodate various
configurations, and to make sure that zero to minimal changes would be needed on the current backend configuration.
More powerful and flexible
Since there are thousands of business applications out there, it is impossible to create a connector
for each one of them. Luckily, not having a connector does not mean that you cannot communicate with
another application. With our VBScript and JScript connectors we have developed many solutions to connect
to local software vendors who offer SOAP or REST API. And with standards such as XML, communicating with
script connectors is becoming much easier than before.
To make our solution even more powerful, in the next few days we will introduce two additional script connectors:
C# and PowerShell. With these connectors you are able to load any .NET assembly, eliminating the need to reinvent
the wheel, and are also able to write critical information to the logs, making it easier to implement, test and
maintain scripts. In this modern day, C# and PowerShell are two of the most well-known languages within the
developers and system administrators community, and will slowly replace the ageing VBScript and JScript.
If you are interested in developing connectors or scripts for your customers and would like to utilize our
resources, our development team is ready to fulfill your requirements. Please contact our Business
Process Services team email@example.com for any inquiries or questions regarding connectors and scripts.
