Why your business needs Connect

Drag and drop multiple files

Connect integrates with your existing SharePoint & OneDrive accounts. Umlaut will replicate your client folders from Xplan and allow you drag and drop the files into the appropriate client folder. Your DocTypes & categories will also sync allowing a seamless process of creating doc notes with multiple files without double handling. You can drag and drop your emails straight from Outlook. Easily update the file notes with the dozens of emails you have sitting in client folders. It’s purpose built to securely integrate your files, using a the identical structure you are use to seeing in Xplan.

Easy-to-use mapping data technology

Once you’ve saved your file (or multiple files) to the client’s folder and doc types, the connector takes care of the rest. You can update index fields in SharePoint such as Subject and Document Date and the connector will update Xplan for you. If you update this information in Xplan , it will update your SharePoint. It’s so simple and easy-to-use and it’ll save you significant time.

Auto-sync to Xplan

Connect automatically syncs the financial documents from your SharePoint and OneDrive desktop folders to Xplan. The software automatically associates the documents with the correct client and document categories and Xplan can access the information within them to perform sophisticated data analysis to support your advising research.
