The eTurns application is currently integrated with our customers’ back-office business (ERP) systems and can be integrated with any current business systems. Our IT consultants work with a customer and their IT support to establish mapping criteria. Then the customer’s IT staff and eTurns work jointly to complete the connection. Today, we can communicate using Web services, the VAN, and eCommerce site or FTP. Data formats include EDI, Edifact, xml, or flat file. File types can include Orders, Consigned Pulls, Catalog, Advanced Ship Notices, Acknowledgements, Bill on Usage, Bill on Replenishment, Quote or Order. The integration is tested, goes into a pilot phase and then goes into live production. The lapsed time to implement can be less than 2 weeks.
