Optimize Business Operations with aACE ERP + NRGship

NRG Software recently collaborated with aACE Software in a webinar about how NRGship integrates with aACE. See this integration in action using showme.aacesoft.net.

aACE is a comprehensive Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution designed to meet the needs of businesses across various industries. From accounting to inventory management and production management to CRM, aACE provides a centralized platform for organizations to manage their processes effectively. aACE is designed for companies that have outgrown small-business software packages and patchwork solutions or are frustrated by the poor performance of expensive ERP systems.

In the age of global commerce, efficient shipping and logistics are essential for success. NRGship integrates smoothly with aACE, streamlining business operations from order creation to product delivery. Shipping data transfers back and forth between NRGship and aACE for easily accessible information and real-time visibility, allowing businesses to track shipments, monitor delivery times, and proactively address any issues that may arise. Shipments are processed using NRGship while the data remains in aACE.

Key advantages include:

  • Improved Order Accuracy: By automating the shipping process, the likelihood of errors such as incorrect addresses or shipping methods is significantly reduced.
  • Enhanced Efficiency: With aACE and NRG Shipping working together, redundant tasks are minimized.
  • Real-Time Visibility: The integration provides real-time visibility into all areas of the shipping process.
  • Cost Savings: Automation and efficiency translate to cost savings. By optimizing shipping processes, businesses can reduce shipping costs and improve their bottom line.

By combining the robust features of aACE with the efficiency of NRG Shipping, organizations can create a seamless system. As businesses continue to prioritize speed, accuracy, and customer satisfaction, the aACE and NRG Shipping integration stands out as a strategic investment in the future success of any enterprise.

NRGship to support FedEx RESTful APls in 2024

Recently, FedEx customers have been receiving messaging regarding FedEx WSDLs being retired in May of 2024. NRGship communicates with FedEx using this interface and has been actively redeveloping using the newer RESTful APIs for release in 2024. Note that only tracking and address validation will be impacted in older versions of NRGship, however updating to the newer release before May 2024 will provide longterm compatability with future FedEx updates.

 

If you are a FileMaker Developer and have done your own FedEx integration with SOAP APIs then you may want to evaluate using NRGship FM for FedEx instead of investing development resources into your own efforts. NRGship FM is the only carrier-certified solution for FedEx, UPS and USPS shipping from FileMaker Pro. Watch this video to see how you can quickly add FedEx rating and shipping in under 10 minutes without the need to do any complex coding.

If you have any questions about the WSDL retirement, please contact NRG support.

NRG participates in 2023 PromoStandards Hack-A-Thon

Back in September, NRG Software staff participated in a group effort to use AI functionality along with PromoStandards to solve common business needs in the promo industry. Utilizing OpenAI we created a group name, logo and a model that would use AI to source and select products based on a prompt, for example, “what products would be good for a sales summit?” We loaded our model with products from several PromoStandards Product Data endpoints. The result was a web solution which returned product text and images based on the query. In the end, our group took 3rd place for our solution.

In a previous article we looked at PromoStandards integration using AirTable and Claris FileMaker Pro.

Contact us if you’d like to discuss PromoStandards integration!

In the video below at around the 47 minute mark you can see our submission.
