RoadNet Plugin

From Wiki-eostar.com
Jump to: navigation, search

RoadNet is a UPS Logistics software. The RoadNet Plugin allows the exporting and importing of data to the RoadNet software. It requires the Order Types Plugin and the Orders-To-Loads Plugin to be installed.

NOTE: eoStar currently only interfaces with RoadNet Transportation Suite, other versions of RoadNet are not supported.

To include or exclude driver's deliveries in an export, check the checkbox Driver's deliveries will be exported to RoadNet on the Records>Employee>Records Interfaces Panel.

With Add-on Orders, after they have been sent through RoadNet, the orders need to be sent through Orders-To-Loads.

For additional information on orders, see Overview: Daily Order and Transfer Process.

For information on the workaround dealing with importing issues from RoadNet Anywhere to eoStar, see RoadNet Anywhere Interface to eoStar.

The checkbox Use Special Fix for Zero-Case Lines on the setup was added in September 2009. This (Special Fix) option adds the value of size 2 into size 1 (which typically represents cases and kegs respectively). This may be necessary for some RoadNet installations that also use Fleetloader, as Fleetloader considers only size one. Combining the two values assures that Fleetloader is aware of both the number of cases and kegs.

Permissions

There are levels of access available for each individual employee or a specific employee department. The Permissions Panel limits or expands the field of access towards certain functions of eoStar and also creates a level of security.

  • May export orders to RoadNet - Grants access to the RoadNet Export screen, and the ability to export orders to RoadNet
  • May import orders from RoadNet (also set May Dispatch permission) - Grants access to the RoadNet Import screen, and the ability to import orders from RoadNet
