File integrations

Files + SmartConnect = Integration anywhere.

Data exports are common and native file import templates usually don’t cut it.

While file import templates in-applications are pretty common, the ability to import a file and map the columns in a way that non-standard to the template isn’t.  SmartConnect fills this gap.  Take your file format and generate data where you need to.

Integrate via Flat File Export & Imports

For some applications, the best way to integrate data is via a File Export & Imports.

Automate with SmartConnect to deliver all your file integration without code.

  • Trigger the integration get the files real-time, as soon as the file is created in that folder.​
  • Run your integration in bulk on your source.

“After we saw how successful the first two maps were and how fast SmartConnect is, I started to look at some of our other integrations (built with IM). I decided since it was so easy, I’d have the RSM team tackle two more integrations for us. Within a few hours, they had replaced two more maps to integrate txt files from two different business segments – 1 of those with intercompany transactions – into accounts payable.” ​

Continuing, Braun Hari expressed her plans, “the speed alone is a factor with SmartConnect and makes it worth us spending a little time moving all our Integration Manager integrations to SmartConnect very soon.”​
