- Integration with InSite
If you are using InSite, you can submit dossier items from Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook or Windows Explorer. You can also view analyses using InSite.
If you do not have InSite, only the following basic functionality is available: maintain and view analyses, publish cockpits and export views to Excel.

Each user who wants to use the Profit Communication Center has to install this application on his workstation. This applies for AFAS Online and for local installations. The Profit Communication Center is a Windows application that can only be installed on a Windows system that is supported by AFAS.
