Nextgen Image Store: Easy Built-in Document Storage and Retrieval
Nextgen Image Store allows users to attach and store any number of Windows documents or scanned images to use as supporting documentation for database records in La Crosse Nextgen. Users can attach documents such as signed PDF proposals, Microsoft Word documents or text files, Excel spreadsheets, scanned TIF or JPEG images, or digital signatures to serial records, leases, invoices, transactions, contracts, service calls, or customer records, as well as many others.
Through the technology of SQL Binary Large Objects (BLOB), Nextgen Image Store eliminates the need to store and modify separate documents in folders on your workstation or network, or use a third party storage system for keeping track of supporting documents. Solid SQL Server security stores files right in the Nextgen database. There is no need to worry about backing up files, since your SQL database backup does all the work for you.
Use Nextgen Image Store to attach images or documents by right clicking and selecting Image from the context menu. The user interface opens and users can select the image or document file they want to link to arecord. It also shows you a list of any documents previously linked to other Nextgen records.
