KFA Connect integrates GFS and Parcelforce with SAP Business One and ScanB1 using BPA Platform
We found the answer to one of our customer’s courier integration requirements with BPA Platform.
When the implementation of ScanB1, a WMS integrated with SAP Business One resulted in a dramatic reduction in data entry errors and manual processes, our customer was keen to extend these improvements to their courier processes which until that point had been manual.
The customer distributes its products to its customers via multiple routes:
- Local trade counter collection
- Palletised consignment
- Parcelforce Worldwide
- Global Freight Solutions (GFS)
“As part of the implementation process for our warehouse management system, ScanB1 we needed to integrate GFS with SAP Business One. Our customer needed a solution that could ensure all orders were imported and fulfilled accurately and on time, as well as removing the continual need for the manual checking and manipulation of missing orders.”Joe Vavasour – KFA Integration Specialist
Having discussed the situation with our customer, the decision was made to use BPA Platform to integrate SAP Business One with GFS and Parcelforce and then automate the management and transfer of order fulfilment data, including:
- Consignment of shipments
- Cancellation of consignments
- Printing of courier labels
- Creation of delivery notes
- Creation of invoices
- Printing of delivery notes, using Crystal Reports
“Now that BPA Platform is automating the order fulfilment process between SAP Business One, GFS and Parcelforce, errors have been eliminated and processing time cut. In addition, customers receive accurate, timely order updates and satisfaction has increased.
“BPA enabled us to meet these requirements quickly and efficiently and as this project led to us integrating with GFS, which we are sure will be of use to others in the future”.
