Document management solution provider Formpipe will release a new interface to connect its digital repository Autoform DM with Microsoft Dynamics. Aptly named DM for Dynamics, the connector will allow Dynamics users to securely import, store, search for and retrieve documents without needing to change displays. This means organisations can easily access all their data in one place, configure the product to suit their needs and regain control over ungoverned repositories. The interface is set to be released on 1 October 2022.
