The Business Integration Server (B.I.S.)

What is the B.I.S., what does it do exactly?

The Business Integration Server (B.I.S.) is an integration platform for server-side synchronization of data between various groupware solutions and customer / contact management systems (CRM or ERP). The emphasis is on data that can be easily and sensibly mapped in a groupware environment, such as, for example, contacts in address books, tasks and appointments. As a result, the groupware becomes more and more an integration platform, which provides all relevant information for the day-to-day business and, if necessary, is interlinked with the corresponding business application via "Quick Links".


As a platform-independent solution, based on modern Java technology, the B.I.S. can easily be installed. A web-based administration interface makes it easy to set up and configure different data sources for synchronization.The modular design and the pen architecture allow easy expansion of the system by connectors for additional data sources. The standard package includes, but is not limited to, the MS Exchange, Office365, OpenXchange App Suite, Google, Zimbra Groupware, SugarCRM6.5.x, Sugar7, SuiteCRM, Vtiger and XING adapters. As a scalable and multitenant solution, the Business Integration Server is also ideally suited for large environments of service providers, who can integrate services from their own portfolio or those of their customers and thus create offers that go far beyond email and personnel information management.
