LookupPoint: Connecting Microsoft Office Users to Critical Business Information Locked in Enterprise Systems
Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference Los Angeles, CA July 11, 2011: Spanish Point Technologies has announced the US launch of LookupPoint™, its leading information access product for Microsoft Office and SharePoint, here today. LookupPoint enables Microsoft Office users to instantly access data locked in enterprise applications including SAP, Oracle and Microsoft Dynamics.
The solution is designed to improve business productivity by bringing together the worlds of Microsoft Office and enterprise business applications. With LookupPoint MS Word, Excel and Outlook users can easily, quickly and securely access business information, aggregated from multiple enterprise applications, without having to leave their familiar Microsoft Office environment.
“A typical information worker spends over 70 percent of their time using applications such as Microsoft Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint, but they often need to access information in one or more business applications which can be time consuming and have a negative impact on productivity,” said Donal Cullen, chief executive officer at Spanish Point. “With LookupPoint they can view the information from their Office application boosting the speed and quality of decision making, and improving corporate compliance.”
“The whole thrust of LookupPoint is that it makes information available to people through the tools they already use and spend most of their time with, which is Microsoft Office,” said Liam Butler, Information Manager for Pobal, which has been using LookupPoint since 2010 “It is making a big difference, especially to senior managers who are infrequent users of the different line-of-business applications.”
LookupPoint harnesses the capabilities of Microsoft Office and web services technology to aggregate information from multiple data sources. Using the LookupPoint configuration tool, IT administrators can build catalogs that control access to data in their line of business systems. Once configured a user simply selects a business item in any email, document or spread sheet and LookupPoint will display the business information associated with that item in the research pane.
Pre-configured catalogues for systems such as SAP, Infor FMS SunSystems and Agresso are available from Spanish Point and our business partners.
