Many groups use the OASIS inbox feature to load faxes, emails or other files requesting quotes or orders directly into OASIS. These requests may or may not be directed to a particular person. For example, files may come into an agency and are stored in a file on a server. OASIS can be setup to grab those files and pull them into the OASIS Inbox. You can then designate a person in the office to manage the invoice queue assigning entries to other users as desired. From the Inbox, those messages can be used to create a new project or order. Messages referencing existing projects or orders can be attached to the existing transaction.
The inbox is used to receive data from external systems including:
- Faxes received electronically*
- Emails sent to a "global" email address
- EDI data feeds
- Web site integration
