How INFOtrac Eliminates Duplication of Data Entry
INFOtrac is designed to integrate to the other software and data sources that you need to run your business. Key to the success of INFOtrac is our ability to truly eliminate your need to manage multiple islands of software and data, manage currency of data in multiple systems and provides an almost limitless ability to automate work flow and business processes that you require.
Accounting - the heart of your business
Integration with the Spire or AccountMate accounting software systems delivers extensive functionality that eliminates the duplication of data entry and provides for extensive workflow and business process automation.
Data Sharing is done through real time - instant synchronization of information from both systems, eliminating the need to enter data into each system. Once INFOtrac or the accounting system has a shared data element, it is automatically in the other system.
Data Referencing allows information from the accounting system to be visible and usable in INFOtrac, live, in real time. Having this information in INFOtrac allows for customized processes, applications and workflows that can be triggered based on these data values. A great example is - for customers, when Accounts Receivable is equal to, or grater than a set value after 30 days - INFOtrac can automatically email the customer or perform any other tasks or reporting that you need. This can be applied to purchase orders, payroll time tracking, inventory items and so much more. There are virtually limitless possibilities for these types of functions. Data referencing takes the valuable data that lives in your accounting system and gives it life to help you run your business and most importantly, automate functions and business processes.
Data Processing allows INFOtrac to actually perform functions in your accounting system, with or without human intervention. A great example of this is when a quotation in INFOtrac becomes an order - it is automatically in your accounting system ready for production management or order fulfillment processing. INFOtrac can even produce the invoice out of the accounting system automatically and send it by email without any human interaction, if that fits your business process requirements. The beauty of INFOtrac's data processing integration to the accounting system is that it allows for truly automated, creative solutions for invoicing, purchase orders, time tracking and any other functions that you may require.
In summary, INFOtrac's deep integration to Spire and AccountMate accounting software systems not only eliminates a great amount of duplication of data entry, it also opens the door to provide a world of automation, work flow processing and custom application solutions that really help you run your business.

Email Integration is key for INFOtrac to send and receive emails through Microsoft Outlook, while keeping history of them in INFOtrac, attached to the required companies and contacts.

Add to this, our ability to automate functionality and trigger based automated email communication can be easily crafted into your system. Email is not a stand alone function with INFOtrac, adding to the elimination of the duplication of data entry.
Contact List Integration is another aspect of the INFOtrac - Microsoft Office integration, where contacts are shared from INFOtrac to the contact lists in Outlook, and Outlook back into INFOtrac. This integration is designed to keep INFOtrac contacts separate from your personal contacts, but they all work seamlessly together. With a selection of controls and rules, this eliminates another element of data duplication.
Calendar Integration with INFOtrac is Automatic and goes both ways with Outlook's calendar. This integration allows you to schedule in both systems and keep business and personal calendars operational.
Microsoft Word Integration is very powerful in INFOtrac, where an unlimited library of templates allows you to create documents using all the data elements in INFOtrac, including the data that is from your accounting system. These templates can be executed by the user or by INFOtrac through our automated processes, where defined triggers create specified documents, makes them into a PDF and automatically emails them.
Microsoft Excel Integration is used throughout INFOtrac to create spreadsheets as you require from data in INFOtrac or data derived from INFOtrac's data elements. Create lists and other complex spreadsheets instantly or automatically. In addition, importing data from Excel is extremely versatile when it is required and can be automated so INFOtrac does the work by itself.
