Utilizing our integration services can significantly enhance the flow of data between your ERP, OMS, WMS and in some instances an eCommerce Shopping Cart. Motus Logistics can implement the integration through your IT Team for no additional cost. The benefit? Streamlined freight booking processes, and robust data exchange.
Motuship can integrate with your existing ERP/OMS/WMS to ensure a smooth flow of data from our tools to yours.
Motus Integration provides a link between your existing ERP system and the Motuship processing screens. Working with your I.T. staff, we can help design a solution that will pull order information from almost any system including address detail, commodity information and shipment specific data. We can also write fulfillment and accounting information back to your ERP after the shipment is complete. This process provides accurate inventory levels and helps accounting bill more accurately- improving cash flow.
To do this, our technology team works closely with your I.T. to program a communication path between your existing ERP system and our web-based freight management system. Once the link has been built, information is loaded onto the screen by entering a reference number to the order and pressing a Load Order button. That’s it! The order information is now on the screen and ready for rating or shipping.
With our XML Web Services, customers can interface directly with our transportation management system to perform most of the common tasks related to freight shipping. Motus XML Web Services were designed to connect to multiple systems as well. Currently, the XML Web Services support SOAP 1.1 and SOAP 1.2 protocols as well as a true HTTP Post of an XML data feed. This allows customers to interface from almost any system.
To use web services, customers send an XML data feed from their system to the Motuship. This feed could be generated from internal servers or captured from a screen you create. During the rating process, our system returns all the rates, Limit of Liability information, and transit days. When you process a freight shipment, our system returns the bill of lading, embedding it in the response back to your system and/or by email to the provided email address.
