Integration - The Challenge

Using the Internet to streamline your company's logistics process can pay big dividends. However, the costs of integrating your company's current systems with an internet-based logistics solution can be intimidating, particularly when you figure in the cost of third-party integration packages, long-term consulting engagements and compatibility problems.

OMSI - The CarrierPoint Solution

CarrierPoint realizes that companies such as yours have developed substantial in-house IT expertise over the years, and want to utilize these talents to their fullest. As a result, we provide the Open Messaging Systems InterfaceSM (OMSI) toolkit to assist in integration. This toolkit provides several packages that can be used to integrate with the CarrierPoint platform. All of the packages provide a secure interface to CarrierPoint's solutions, with full encryption, authentication and guaranteed message delivery. CarrierPoint's OMSI packages can be implemented and maintained by your IT personnel, even if they do not have Internet development experience.
