Seamlessly connect your Epicor system to any database, software application or internet business transactions

QSS can make your business more efficient with our Microsoft® .NET Framework-based application database connectivity solutions. Whatever application you need your ManFact™, Avanté or DataFlo™ to connect to, we can do it – smoothly and quickly.

Office Link – Your link to Microsoft products

Make your business more productive and profitable with Office Link – our custom-programming service that lets you exchange information between your Epicor system and Microsoft applications. You can do this unattended or with just a touch of a button. No more uploading and downloading ASCII files, no incompatibility problems – just a seamless integration of data…online and in real time.

Here's a taste of what Office Link can do for you

  • Microsoft Word – touch a hot-key and a Word template opens and loads with database information. Use it for everything from quotations to engineering documents and drawings to reports – and never rekey information again. We also have developed client and server based forms printing applications to replace the standard product sales orders, purchase orders, packing slips and others using this technology.
  • Microsoft Excel – tap a hot-key to load database information into an existing workbook, spreadsheet or graph. Plus, with appropriate security clearances, you can automatically update changes made in Excel back to your Epicor database.
  • Microsoft Outlook® – fax or email transactions, documents and messages directly from your ERP system using any workstation to expedite requests. Examples of what you can automatically send to your customers, suppliers or employees include:
    • Purchase Orders
    • Change Orders
    • Order Acknowledgments
    • Shipping Notifications
    • Material Shortage Notifications
  • Microsoft PowerPoint® – click on any hot-key to transfer data directly into PowerPoint and create color graphics, charts and presentations.

Database connectivity – Your link to multiple databases

We can set up your system so you can make online, real time changes from your Epicor system to any database, including Microsoft Access, Microsoft SQL Server™, Oracle® and others. There’s no extra work on your part – when you make changes in any database, those changes automatically happen in the other databases you use.

XML Web Services – Harnessing the power of information exchange

Automate business transactions quickly and easily with Web services.

Web services are a fast, secure way to communicate information in today’s world. They allow your company to make information available, as well as to use and share information other companies have made available on the internet. For instance, you can use a Web service to exchange information between corporate computer systems that are not running Epicor software.

If you have a need or desire to exchange information between any internet application, corporate database or other computer system, we can design a Web service to meet your requirements.
