Provided and maintained by Varsity, the Infor XA Interface seamlessly exchanges shipment and order data between Infor XA (formerly MAPICS) and Varsity ShipSoft and ShipPack. Seamless Order Management and Shipping By tightly integrating Infor XA with ShipSoft and ShipPack, Varsity’s Infor XA 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 Infor XA Interface uses flexible exit points and an externally described parameter list, or P-List, to map data elements from Infor XA into ShipSoft (or ShipPack) and to return the results back to Infor XA. The primary Infor XA files used for the interface are MBCLRESO, MBC6RES3, and MBCNRESA. Varsity pulls required shipment data such as the pick number, quantity, and ship-to address directly from the Infor XA 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 Infor.
