The TranSendIT program is a complete and flexible "Export Shipment Processing Service" that
provides the means to create, manage and share shipment data across the
a use of a "data import" function, the system runs the ODBC link. The ODBC link works by running a "select statement" which accesses the shipper's internal databases and files in their order-entry system and "builds" a list of all shipments meeting the preset conditions. The user selects the shipment record(s) that will be processed for actually shipping.
The TranSendIT program provides the user with the ability to review and modify the shipment data that has been imported prior to saving a final version for distribution. This was critical, as the number of units retrieved from the order-entry system may be changed to deal with back orders.
