product, SDX was the next logical step.”

use as-is or modify to bring information into Spectrum from other

sources, including other software applications. SDX comes with a

Microsoft Excel® add-in that lets the user connect to

spreadsheets and applications onto a single platform without the time

and money usually associated with software integration.
