Provided and maintained by Varsity, the HarrisData Interface seamlessly exchanges shipment and order data between HarrisData ERP solutions and Varsity ShipSoft™.
Seamless Order Management and Shipping
By tightly integrating HarrisData with ShipSoft, Varsity's HarrisData Interface enables seamless order processing from order entry through delivery. Shipment and order information is shared across the organization enabling:
- Rate shopping, selection of shipping options, and quotation of shipping rates at order entry
- Instant visibility to shipment status and simplified requests for proof of delivery
- Accurate shipping costs for invoicing and analysis
Varsity's HarrisData Interface uses flexible exit points and an externally described parameter list, or P-List, to map data elements from HarrisData into ShipSoft and to return the resulback to HarrisData. The primary HarrisData files used for the interface are OEORHD, OECMWK, HDDSHP, HDCUST and HDLCTN. Varsity pulls required shipment data such as the pick number, quantity, and ship-to address directly from the HarrisData database. It then passes back shipping details including the tracking number, package ID, weight, and freight charges, which can be used to update any file in HarrisData. Designed for flexibility, this data exchange method can be tailored to support virtually any supply chain process.
The Varsity HarrisData Interface can be called at any time to initiate order processing in ShipSoft. The interface allows "invisible" processing of orders without requiring additional user input or screens. A ‚Äúvisible‚Ä? mode is also available where ShipSoft screens are populated with HarrisData data and shipments are managed directly from ShipSoft.
Both the Varsity and HarrisData systems reside on the System i platform, resulting in superior speed, throughput, and reliability.
