PROCESS FLOWS

+-Content-Based Routing

360data can route files based not only on transaction type, but also on data content. In the example below, Customer 1 submits a purchase order for goods and 360data translates the PO into the client's format. In this case, the PO also applies to a specific Ship To location. The system sends a second copy to the 3PL warehouse servicing that location.

Customer 2 also submits a purchase order. In this case, the Product ID matches a special promotion that requires customized packaging. The PO is routed to the appropriate third-party supplier who is handling the promotion fulfillment.

+-Data Cleansing

360data performs sophisticated data cleansing to process information other programs can't. This is especially useful when 360data is utilized with existing software. In this example, Carrier 1 sends a freight bill with incomplete information. Perhaps it includes the Bill of Lading or PRO, rather than the Shipment ID. Or perhaps the carrier includes accessorial codes that the existing TMS can't process. 360data uses sophisticated algorithms to match the bill to the shipment, cross-referencing the billing codes. Once matched and mapped, a clean freight bill is sent through to the client's TMS. In cases where a match can't be found, the data enters an exception queue, where the client can view and resolve the issue or send a rejection to the carrier.
