MA!N data interface (basic)
For importing data, MA!N uses an import mapping. This indicates which data is offered and where it should be added in MA!N. It uses the data for calculating activities, aging and system proposals, among other things, and provides quick insight into the open portfolio.
In most cases, the outstanding items and a debtor/customer file are imported into MA!N. It is also possible to import changes. Below is a summary of the most important data that can be read into MA!N: this is a selection.
Besides importing static files, MA!N also offers options for REST and realtime data-exchange.
