CSI Order Power ERP Integration

Provided and maintained by CSI of Florida, the CSI Order Power Interface seamlessly exchanges shipment and order data between the CSI Order Power Order Management and Varsity shipping solutions.

Seamless Order Management and Shipping

By tightly integrating CSI Order Power with Varsity solutions on the IBM i, the CSI Order Power 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

Adaptable Technology

Integration Flow Diagram

The CSI Order Power interface uses order header and detail files to lead the front end selection screen that initiate and drive the shipping process and file updates. The primary CSI Order Power files used for the interface are listed on the left. Varsity pulls required shipment data such as the pick number, quantity, and ship-to address directly from the CSI Order Power database, processes the shipments, and updates the CSI Order Power database with shipping details including tracking number, package ID, weight, and freight charges. Designed for flexibility, this data exchange method can be tailored to support virtually any supply chain process.

The CSI Order Power interface allows “invisible” processing of orders, without requiring additional user input of screens, or by “visible’ mode, where Varsity screens are populated with CSI Order Power data and displayed to allow the shipper to modify/confirm the shipping details prior to processing the shipment with Varsity solutions.

The Varsity and Order Power systems both reside on the IBM i platform, resulting in superior speed, throughput and reliability.
