Acumatica ERP delivers an adaptable cloud and mobile-based enterprise resource planning solution with a user-licensing model, which enables a real-time view of business operations at any time and from anywhere. Through a worldwide network of partners, Acumatica ERP provides the full suite of integrated business management applications, including financials, distribution, accounting and professional services.
Acumatica is working relentlessly to evolve and develop its ERP product and hired Sprinterra to integrate with largest multinational courier delivery services – FedEx and UPS to provide an ability to manage shipments within the application.
Acumatica required a solution that could control all the shipments within the system, calculate the cost, print labels and even order delivery by sending information directly to FedEx and UPS.
Acumatica Shipping Tool Integration is a Windows desktop application that integrates Acumatica ERP system with the following shipping systems:
- UPS WorldShip
- FedEx Ship Manager
Application enables users to process Acumatica shipments in one of the supported shipping applications with the subsequent update of the tracking and freight cost information in Acumatica.
Shipment processing can be invoked from Acumatica Shipping screen. User is able to begin processing only if the screen is active/open in Web Browser and selected shipping system is up and running. Application runs through all browsers’ sessions to find active Acumatica web module.
When user finishes picking/packing in Acumatica, the system will automatically trigger FedEx or UPS application. Data in Acumatica will be updated and shipment confirmed, when processing is completed in FedEx or UPS application. Regardless of the scenario, application retrieves related shipment details from Acumatica and submits them to the selected shipping application using predefined mapping.
Once user finalizes shipment processing, Acumatica receives automatic update with corresponding tracking numbers, freight cost and package weight.
