Connect Desktop Integration

Work fast and effectively with documents in the SAP environment

Manage your documents comfortably, quickly and safely!

Documents are alongside structured data in databases of the typical business systems an important medium for various types of information. Nowadays, a multitude of important information is stored in files on hard-drives or fileservers outside of professional IT systems, they can be Word, Excel or PowerPoint files, e-mails (Outlook + Lotus Notes) or PDF. This is not without problems: Which version of a file is correct and current? Who has access to the file? How can I incorporate the file into business processes that I control and monitor? The problems remain no matter if we are dealing with approved, informative or data-collecting processes.
