TMS & ERP INTEGRATION- PNG EFFICIENCY SAVINGS
You might ask yourself what is API and ERP Integration? First, we need to learn what these acronyms stand for, API (Application Program Interface) and ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning.) API’s make it possible to move information between programs – between PNG TMS and customer ERP. The API can integrate with nearly any ERP system no matter what the code base is written on.
How can this can be beneficial to you? Think back to a time when you asked yourself why these two programs can’t talk to one another. If this would happen it would make my life so much easier. This technology is here now and many of our customer have asked how can our system can communicate with their software?
When you login into your providers website to enter your shipments, you are pretty much duplicating the information that is already been entered into their system. Instead of entering all the information for the shipper and the consignee into our system for every outbound shipment, you can now enter the order number alone and all the other details of the shipment will be pulled directly from your system, Including:
- Purchase Order #
- Shipper and Consignee Addresses
- Product and Dimensions
- Contact Information
This Integration is very helpful to avoid double entry and improve on accuracy in the load, as well as the ability to pull data directly from our system to yours. ERP integration offers our clients complete customer service solutions. This also increases the trackability for all shipments and allows your employees to have visibility to track your freight without having to access your service providers system directly. This will allow your customer service representatives the opportunity to save time and energy.
This is one of the areas that we are seeing a significant demand for this type of service. PNG is here to assist you with ERP Integration. If you have questions or to learn more about ERP integration, please contact us at 717-626-1107 x 3 or email@example.com
