Financial Systems Integration

We are keenly aware that organizations use a variety of financial solutions for accounting. We therefore provide mechanisms to export necessary financial information (Payment Vouchers/ Bills, Payments etc) to your financial solution.

Approved documentation may be exported into Financial systems such as Quickbooks and Sage from the Workflow Engine. This is done by exporting form data into formats compatible with the corresponding financial system.

Process Data is continually dumped into process reports that can be viewed in the reporting module.
