Microsoft Office 2013 Module for ApplicationXtender

Organizations are taking advantage of the familiarity of the 2013 Microsoft Office (MS Office) system to more easily access mission-critical, line-of-business (LOB) processes and systems such as accounting and customer service applications. These companies are increasingly deploying Office Business Applications (OBAs) to transform document-based tasks into more efficient, automated processes that align with a particular LOB function.

Office Business Applications are Microsoft applications that connect LOB systems with the people that use them through the familiar user interface of Microsoft Office. ApplicationXtender® for Microsoft Office 2013 is designed to support and extend the concept of Office Business Applications, providing direct access to a content management system.

ApplicationXtender software has helped organizations to better manage images, reports, documents, and other business-critical content for years. ApplicationXtender is an electronic filing cabinet that stores, organizes, and manages virtually any kind of business-ready content and provides role-based access to this content from either a desktop interface or a web browser. A Workflow Manager add-on module enables organizations to create departmental workflow solutions designed to improve efficiency in business processes.

Built on Microsoft .NET, ApplicationXtender provides out-of-the-box workflow samples, a user-friendly process designer, and built-in reporting tools—everything users need to design, implement, and manage their business processes without IT support. An integral part of the portfolio of information management products, ApplicationXtender helps connect an organization’s employees to the information they need.

Quick Access to Business-Critical Documents

Rapid Deployment and Customization

ClickOnce applications can be conveniently distributed by using a web page, a network file share, or physical media. After they are installed, ClickOnce applications can automatically check for and download new application components as necessary. Because ClickOnce applications are self-contained and do not rely on shared components, updates are unlikely to cause version conflicts with other programs that do rely on shared components. This type of deployment and automatic updating helps minimize human involvement in the version control process, greatly improving usability for employees and saving time and effort for IT departments.
