What is AppXtender?

ApplicationXtender Web Access (AppXtender) is an OpenText document management product used by the University to meet its needs for an electronic document management system. AppXtender allows for document imaging, scanning, and indexing, both for individual departments and for the entire institution. It integrates with the University's Banner system at the data, event, and form levels, and has specific integration points with each Banner module (Finance, Student, Financial Aid, and Human Resources) that improve efficiency and supplement the decision-making process through easy access to relevant document collections.

AppXtender allows for document management in various ways, including:

  • Scanning and indexing documents, either individually or in bulk.
  • Querying for specific images or documents from a Banner form.
  • E-mailing images and documents to other users for review.
  • Annotating images.
  • Updating Banner data based on the receipt of appropriate documents.
  • Scanning and storing documents that do not directly pertain to Banner data.
