ERP Integration Partners

Varsity’s shipping execution suite interfaces to all major ERP, order entry, and warehouse management systems developed for the IBM System i. All Varsity programs and files reside on the System i, creating the most robust and powerful online, real-time integration.

There are two methods of calling ShipSoft from an interface: visible and invisible. When running ShipSoft using the visible method, the interface will call a ShipSoft program that displays a shipping screen allowing the user to verify and change the shipping information prior to shipping a package, while the invisible method calls a ShipSoft program that does not display a screen. With the invisible mode, it is very important to capture all the information that is needed and pass it through the interface to ShipSoft since the user does not see the information and is unable to make changes to the data. Both of these modes of ShipSoft will create the same labels and manifest records, and both require an interface to pass information to them. It is up to the users to determine which mode works best in their environment.
