How Does eFORMz Integrate?
Use eFORMz to capture print streams from a variety of third-party WMS, OMS, ERP, and shipping applications. After the print output is captured, eFORMz can format and print the captured information on a label or form. Here are some of the ways eFORMz can integrate with your systems:
eFORMz can look like nearly any printer including Toshiba, Zebra, and laser printers. Simply add eFORMz as a new printer in your software application. Your application prints to the eFORMz virtual printer, which captures the print stream as a file. eFORMz combines and formats the file, possibly with data from additional sources for output to a thermal or laser printer.
Likewise, configure eFORMz to monitor local and remote computer directories to capture data. This data can include spooled print files, plain text files from legacy systems, or images. eFORMz extracts data from the captured files, formats them, places them on your form or label, and finally sends the form or label to the printer.
Web Service Calls
In addition, web service calls let you send or receive data from web applications with industry standard POST and GET methods. Connect to remote systems over http or https protocols to get data from remote servers. There’s no need to write new code or configure a database connection. The web service provider determines the URL syntax, including key value pairs (KVPs) to send.
Relational Database Queries
Finally, business-critical data is often located on a relational database server. eFORMz can submit SQL queries, call stored procedures or user-defined functions, and even do SQL updates and inserts. Data retrieved from the database server can be placed onto your form or label or used with an eFORMz rule to customize content.
