VSS has developed programs to produce the 867 POS (point of sale) document being requested by some vendors. This information is usually sent periodically (monthly in most cases) to your vendors showing each customer/invoice for the period.
We have also developed programs for the automatic FTP of EDI transactions, reporting the status of each EDI, sending emails to personnel informing them of the status of each of their EDI documents, updating time-stamp records, maintaing the actual transfer of data logs so they can be viewed later, alerting the user if a document is not acknowledged within 24 hours.
These programs automate the exchange of data between the Mark system and the UPS PC. Either a flat file or ODBC may be used.
When you enter an order on the Mark system, if the Shipvia has been designated as a “ups shipvia code” then our program will automatically send the appropriate information to a UPS file. This file has been set up to correspond with the information needed by UPS so that when your warehouse employee wants to enter a shipment in the UPS PC he enters (or scans) the order number. The rest of the information will automatically appear on his screen.
Once he finishes with this screen
The packing slip prints
The UPS tracking numbers and charges are posted to the Mark records
These tracking numbers can be viewed in IQ/1/1 and may be printed on documents.
The UPS charges (plus any specified upcharge) and tracking numbers and number of boxes are automatically put into the shipping records and can be accepted or overwritten during the shipping acknowledgement process
COD charges & Void transactions are automatically handled.
REVISED PRODUCT COPY (IC/1/7)
This revised program includes several enhancements that make it easier to track the changes that occur when an item is copied from one product to another:
ABC GREEN WIDGET
(REPLACES ITEM XYZ)
Ability to print documents in duplex mode (assuming you have a laser printer with this capability)
This program creates and stores a “copy” of the last months statements so that you can re-print them or re-send them exactly as they were when they were originally produced.
MIS PROJECT TRACKING:
The MIS system includes a project tracking feature. To use this you must answer “Y” to the installation question regarding project tracking (install menu # 5)
