Automated Data Exchange

The typical installation that utilizes a cost recovery system includes an accounting server and a cost recovery server connected via a local area network (LAN).  Data is periodically exchanged between the two systems.  

Moving data between the application server and the LAN is simplified through support for a broad variety of file transfer methods including:

  • FTP
  • HTTP
  • NFS
  • Windows Shares

ECRS provides the ability to schedule tasks on the accounting server to completely automate the exchange of information between the cost recovery system and the accounting server.  The typical exchange of information includes the
extraction of validation data from the accounting system, the transfer of the information to a shared folder on the LAN, the updating of tables in the cost
recovery system, the transfer of transactions from the cost recovery system to ECRS and the posting of the transactions into the accounting system.  These
tasks can generally be performed without any human intervention.

Validation Table Creation

Many installations require the production of validation tables for third-party products. ECRS can automatically generate validation tables for third-party applications.  Most major time entry, records management, conflict of interest, document management and similar applications are already supported.

Rules may be established for creating validation tables that match each of the requirements of your respective third-party vendors. These rules control the data elements extracted and the criteria for extraction.

Validation table can include:

  • Matters
  • Clients
  • Timekeepers
  • Users
  • Extensions
  • Locations

The validation tables may be produced at any time on demand, or they may be created using scheduled tasks or packets.
