Integration between Ongoing WMS and Opter (formerly Fleet101 K2)

Opter is a transportation administration system that allows you to streamline the management of your freight assignments.

Features

When the order in Opter has been created Ongoing will receive a response from Opter. Depending on the transporter and your Opter settings the response might contain one or both the following information:

Create an order in Opter based on an invoice in Ongoing

An invoice in Ongoing Warehouse WMS can be transferred as an order in Opter to get the charges in the WMS to the TMS.

Please ask your contact person at Ongoing Warehouse for detailed information.
