Westford, MA (PRWEB) September 10, 2010
Apps Associates today announced that it has achieved Oracle Validated Integration of its shipping solution, ShipConsole 5, with the Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 through the Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) program. Organizations wanting to integrate the Oracle E-Business Suite with parcel and freight carriers such as UPS and FedEx can now use ShipConsole with the confidence of knowing that ShipConsole's integration with the Oracle E-Business Suite has been tested as being technically and functionally sound by Oracle, and utilizing Oracle's integration standards and best practices. This results in reduced risk, easier upgrades, and lower ownership costs.
Apps Associates' ShipConsole integrates with the Oracle E-Business Suite facilitating online shipping, label printing, ship confirmation, and real-time shipment tracking, through Oracle Shipping Execution, from a single interface. It uses SOA-based integration, with Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle BPEL Process Manager, to transmit shipping information from the Oracle E-Business Suite to carriers such as UPS and FedEx and save tracking information and freight costs retrieved from carriers back in the Oracle E-Business Suite.
With ShipConsole you can:
- Create shipments for deliveries in the Oracle E-Business Suite and ship them via carriers such as UPS, FedEx, and LTL carriers
- Obtain shipping labels, tracking numbers and freight costs from freight carrier systems and save these back in the Oracle E-Business Suite
- Complete ship confirm process in the Oracle E-Business Suite with click of a single button. Ship complete, partial, or backorder items easily
- Enter and validate item serial numbers at time of shipping
- Print all shipping documentation from a single source
- Track shipment status by order/delivery number
- Enhance visibility into freight costs and shipment tracking information
According to James Barron, Sr. Business Analyst at Hologic, Inc., "ShipConsole has improved productivity by providing a single user interface which integrates with our carriers. Our shipping departments rely heavily on this tool which speeds up our process and provides better reporting and tracking capabilities."
"Apps Associates ShipConsole 5 delivers value during the critical last-mile of the parcel shipping process through the direct integration with the Oracle E-Business Suite," said Kevin O'Brien, senior director, ISV and Saas Strategy, Oracle. "The Oracle Validated Integration of ShipConsole to the Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1 validates that the products work together as designed. This can help reduce risk, improve system implementation cycles, and provide for smoother upgrades and simpler maintenance for customers."
