Third party Interfaces

Once you start using Escape Online, you will want it to connect with all of your other software business packages. Our customers have driven the list of technologies with which we interface. As new ideas, like Office Depot online, come to the forefront, we work closely with customers and vendors to create a seamless interface with third party technologies.

Scanning Repository Software – Automatic extract and import into repository

We have developed and implemented interfaces to the following document management systems, archiving AP and Payroll check information automatically on a nightly basis. Several customers are using the interfaces on their LIVE systems. The DocStar interface has been in production for over 5 years.
