AlfaPeople AG and officeatwork have had a strategic integration partnership for about 2 years in the Microsoft Dynamics AX environment. Through the cooperation of both companies and the combination of core competencies, AlfaPeople as Dynamics AX specialist and officeatwork as market leader in template management, the “Enterprise Document Creation” solutions of officeatwork are used directly and efficiently used from Microsoft Dynamics AX.

AlfaPeople AG in Glattbrugg / ZH as Microsoft Gold Partner in the area of Microsoft Dynamics AX in cooperation with officeatwork launches the Dynamics AX connector “AXFire”. AXFire gives the customers the chance to finally create and edit their internal and external reports and so avoid programming.

Document creation:
Efficient document and report creation in Microsoft Dynamics AX environment happens on the basis of a main Word template. In this, the existing, standardised SSRS reports are overdriven: The “Secret” of the process is in the XMLT or DCMLT programming. An XMLT template is saved in the Dynamics AX environment, which is filled with the dynamic query results. In this, during the query, we determine which target document is created. The role of the AXFire connector is that the XMLT templates and the results of the dynamic query mentioned, are assembled. The result assembled is transferred over the EDC Sever by officeatwork and file system in the desired Word, Excel or PDF document. There exists the option of using Drag & Drop to automatically or manually save in the Document Management System (DMS) by ecspand.

Excel Export:
With AXFire, one also has the option of Excel Export. Clear in Dynamics AX, there is the standard function “Export Excel”. AXFire goes one step further and enables the user the data export for complex data. This means that the data can be exported from several tables into one Excel table. Obviously, even the pivot tables can then be created.

Additional functions/Modules of AXFire:

The AXLighter module has appeared as second innovation and expansion. Upon the customer’s wish, this module was launched to call with the requirement or functionality Reports from Dynamics AX without starting the Dynamics AX Client. This is mainly interesting for the C-Level to be able to call the desired statistics fast without summoning in Dynamics AX in the corresponding menu. With AXLighter, the CEO of a company, for example, has the option of calling last week’s sales figures on an airplane, without having to login in Dynamics AX.
