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 results back 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.
