What to Expect

ACC consumed services provide a mixture of “build it yourself” and “nearly ready to consume” offerings; IDE & SFT are examples of the latter, APIs are an example of the former.

The Inbound Documents API sits in the middle; some more upfront investment in the initial API is required as a one-off but once in place then, as ACC accepts business cases for more documents to be submitted through this mechanism, the addition of those documents is down to identifying each new document type has value for your customers and then applying the appropriate metadata to that document.  A list of the currently permitted documents can be found here.

Ultimately, software vendors can assist their customers minimise the number of clicks to meet ACC requests for such documentation.
