A key component of our MobileHub application server is our integration layer. We have a web API that supports REST and SOAP access to key functions, such as adding trips, orders and loads from external dispatch systems.
For exporting data, the REST web service supports getting completed orders along with their unit filling details, exporting customer, assets, products and other key entities.
For customers who do not have a web service capability, we have a built-in job scheduler that supports running custom tasks for things like order imports via FTP, tank reading imports via FTP, or imports via Windows UNC file shares. The job scheduler can export data to FTP or UNC (Windows) files shares, too.
We have pre-built and custom integrations to a number of systems, including:
- Ortec ORD and OIR for routing optimization and dispatch
- Epicor Prophet21 for orders and invoicing
- PDI DM2 for orders and invoicing
- Oracle for orders and invoicing
- SAP for fixed assets
- Custom systems
Our job scheduler makes it very easy to support integration to systems that may be older and don’t have API’s or easy integration points. With the job scheduler, we can easily export files in legacy formats. Another example is a standard scheduled job to export images to Oracle for delivery signatures and PDF’s of delivery receipts.
