About the solution at MGL
SAXOTECH Online has an engine called "SAXOTECH OnlineRobot". This engine is an export application, which can export data from SAXOTECH Online in XML format.
 
This engine can be set up to run once (used if the customer wants to export all the data to the archive) or to run frequently during the day. The OnlineRobot can both be set up to receive or send XML files.
 
In the case of MGL, SAXOTECH has set up the OnlineRobot to export articles towards X-CAGO Archive ExPress. The engine automatically exports the latest Online articles available.
 
This solution is very simple and easy to use for customers, because no manual work is required. The export is made through close co-operation between SAXOTECH and X-CAGO to support the interface and establishing a seamless integration.
