Customers who wish to connect their systems to Blue dot need to provide the access credentials required for secure permission and authentication. The customer can get the credentials by opening a support ticket in Emburse asking to enable the data access to Blue dot.
Following that the customer needs to sign a 3rd party data release form in Emburse. Once this is done, the customer gets a set of API keys that need to be provided to Blue dot in addition to the 4-digit customer number (an ID of the account inside Emburse). The Blue dot service desk will then create a secure connection to the Emburse customer account.
Once entities are set up in Blue dot they are activated and the data processing starts. Results can be seen in the dedicated portal,as well as,periodic available reports.
