ECS/ie for iSeries
ECS/ie consists of the following integrated functionality:
AS/400 Spool file integration
The iSeries (AS/400) spool file integration module facilitates the email or FTP transmission of iSeries spool files. Spool file data that meets a specific selection criteria can be sent within the body of the email or as an attachment in HTML, PDF(Acrobat) or TXT formats. ECS/ie uses standard AS/400 output queues to define two different types of electronic output queue processing:
ECSie EDI XML PDF Translator
Electronic "Output queues"
e-outq's are output queues defined within ECS/ie that have an associated email distribution list, AS/400 spool files that are placed in the output queues defined as e-outq's will be automatically emailed to the recipients listed in the distribution list.
Ideal for the automated transmission of reports to a departmental distribution list.
Any spool files placed in the iSeries (AS/400) Output queue's defined as "e-Outbox" are automatically emailed to the recipient via ECS/ie. The email address is retrieved from within the spool file text allowing the business application system to define who the email recipients are.
Ideal for the unattended email of business transaction documentation such as Purchase Orders to suppliers and Order Acknowledgements to Customers'. More detail........
The ECS/XML Processor enables translation between DB/400 files and XML documents to support any business transaction. The ECS/XML Processor can be integrated to any iSeries (AS/400) business application enabling the automated and seamless generation of XML documents sourced from legacy AS/400 applications. Inbound XML transactions are mapped to DB/400 files ready for posting to your AS/400 business application.
The ECS/EDI Processor is a fully functional and validating EDI Translator that enables the automated and seamless exchange of EDI transactions between your iSeries (AS/400) Business Application and external Trading Partners. EDI Interchanges can be exchanged via IBM Expedite, FTP, email or the Internet.

The ECS/ie API enables the transmission of DB/400 database files as Microsoft Excel compatible comma delimited files (CSV) or as Flat (text) files. Simple message emails can also be sent using the included API which requires basic details, such as; email address, subject and text. The ECS/ie API can be used to send emails from an iSeries (AS/400) command line, CL program or can be imbedded within your business application. More detail........

What YOU can do with ECS/ie
Also need to send automated Faxes?
ECS/ie can address all your messaging needs, including Fax. If you have requirements to send automated fax then ECS/ie combined with internet based electronic fax service providers (such as JFAX & eFax) has proven to be more economical than sending faxes direct. It costs as little as 3 pence to send a page of A4 text to an international fax number.
ECS/ie requires minimal set up because it interacts with the email client rather than the server. The installation of ECS/ie does not require any network re-configuration and should not breach corporate security policies.
