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
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
tasks can generally be performed without any human intervention.
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.
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:
validation tables may be produced at any time on demand, or they may be
created using scheduled tasks or packets.
