Output Management

Traditional ERP systems often reach their limits when it comes to document output. In the standard release, it is often not possible to generate professional-looking offers, documents, contracts, or invoices directly from the system. The result: long processing times, excessive manual work, and a high error rate. The good news: there is a viable alternative. With fully integrated output management solutions.

More efficiency thanks to output management

In the standard version, most ERP systems do not provide any usable documents that comply with European standards. For example, the SQL Server Reporting Services - also known as SSRS - included in the Microsoft Dynamics product family are only suitable for the US market. Manual modification of SSRS involves a great deal of programming work. If it works at all: some requirements simply cannot be implemented in SSRS. Also, in most ERP systems, the number of output channels is so limited that documents have to be edited manually afterward.

Of course, the market has long since discovered and closed these gaps. There is a wide range of solutions and add-ons - from the previously mentioned SSRS customization, MSFT Configurable Business Documents and Formpipe, to dox42. They all have advantages and disadvantages. The important thing is to find the solution that best suits your company and enables your teams to really work more efficiently. We would be happy to help you select and deploy an output management solution that is suitable for you, integrate commercially available archiving systems, and train your staff.
