About the integration
All 3PL partners using Ongoing WMS as their Warehouse Management System will be able to integrate directly to tracezilla via the standard integration between Ongoing and tracezilla.
If you use a 3PL partner, it will be of great advantage to choose one who is using Ongoing WMS. Contact Ongoing WMS to know which 3PL in your area are Ongoing WMS users.
The integration will automatically synchronize all orders between tracezilla and the 3PL partner (using Ongoing WMS) every 15 minutes. SKUs, SKU names, and transport contracts can be synchronized by the user.
Information about lot and batch numbers, quantities and expiration dates on the goods will automatically be synchronized to tracezilla as soon as the 3PL partner receives the goods from your supplier.
When the 3PL partner picks your goods for sales or production, information about which lots are picked will automatically be synchronized to tracezilla. When the goods are dispatched from the warehouse, the order status in tracezilla will be changed to Dispatched.
Having a direct integration to your 3PL partner via Ongoing has great benefits.
You will avoid sending emails back and forth with your 3PL partner about lots, dates and batch numbers. Thereby a huge source to errors and misunderstandings will be eliminated.
You also avoid entering the traceability information that you receive from your supplier. This will be synchronized automatically from your 3PL partner via the integration.
