The Challenge

Companies have to invest considerable time and manual work to store documents properly and in an audit-proof manner. This is true whether it's filling filing cabinets in the back office or in a paper archive in the basement.  

Even if a company already has a digital archive, the challenge of effectively managing the large flow of incoming and outgoing documents remains. This requires a lot of manual time. 


Many of the daily documents are generated directly in the in-house ERP system. Significant time savings would be possible if this system were able to automatically transfer all created documents to a digital archive, categorize them appropriately and store them. This is exactly where the Business Central Connector for ELO comes in: It enables precisely this automation by working seamlessly with the ERP system to ensure efficient document management.

The Solution

For users who use the ERP system Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central and the document management system from ELO, we now offer a tailor-made solution: the Business Central Connector for ELO.

By using the Business Central Connector for ELO, you can seamlessly integrate the functions of the ELO DMS into Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, making workflows considerably more efficient.


This connector also enables documents to be archived and retrieved directly within Business Central. Indexing and assignment to the corresponding objects - be it an order or invoice from the respective supplier or a quotation from the customer - are carried out fully automatically and without errors directly from the ERP system.

Immediately ready to go, quickly implemented, right in line with Business Central

The Business Central Connector for ELO can be set up quickly and easily - self-installation is easy with the right instructions. This allows you to link ERP and DMS in just a few steps and effectively automate your document management. The range of functions offered by both the Connector and the ELO DMS are so extensive that they have the potential to promote the growth of your company for many years to come. This means that both products are fully in line with the Business Central philosophy, which can also be lean to start with and a loyal companion for many years to come thanks to its wide range of functions.
