External Databases
The steps to try this exciting new method of data capture and distribution for yourself are as follows:

These databases are password protected and accessed and stored on the web.


The databases have multiple uses:


  1. The data can be combined with user data when creating shipment files from external sources. Data not available in a user's internal systems can be stored in the external databases, then automatically added to the shipment data file as it is being created or posted. This includes generating shipment files using the EDI-Link, ODBC LinkFile Import and EDI Upload options.


  1. The data is automatically saved to the local TranSendIT installation and included in the paperwork and resulting shipment data file.This is available only the TranSendIT users.



The Databases are:
