Build your digital workplace and improve efficiencies: Connect ERP, CRM and HCM business applications to your Microsoft Office 365 content

OpenText™ Extended ECM for Microsoft® Office 365™ provides the critical connection between content and business processes that enables organizations to maximize their investment in Office 365 and accelerate efficiencies across their enterprise.

By transforming to process-driven collaboration and integrating key business systems like ERP, CRM, and HCM with Office 365, users become more productive, have the right information at their disposal, resulting in efficient processes with compliant and controlled information.  This is accomplished through OpenText Business Workspaces, which connect users of business systems to relevant Microsoft Office 365 content from their familiar UI. See it in action in the video below.

Companies today wrestle with managing increasing volume of content, finding the most current version of documents, and figuring out how to modernize their operations in the evolving digital world.

Businesses have adopted Microsoft Office 365 as their standard solution for content creation and collaboration as they continue to run their key business processes in separate ERP, CRM and HCM business applications.   These back-end business platform systems are crucial components for their business operations.

Silos of data in leading business applications, complex linear processes and disparate application landscapes are all barriers to transformation in the digital world. Companies using ERP, CRM and HCM systems like SAP, Oracle, Microsoft Dynamics or Salesforce find it difficult to provide a holistic view on important information to their users. This means decisions are made on incomplete information sets and results in increased efforts to find the right information to complete the business processes. Office 365 users are prevented from efficiently collaborating with content in ERP and CRM systems.

OpenText helps companies have a single source of truth and streamline their business by connecting their Office 365 content to their business processes.
