Software Modules

PT Accounting (CorePT) is the CoreIMS™  Sage 50 (former PeachTree®) integration module. It allows for the import of sales and purchase order data from Sage 50 to CoreIMS™ as well as the import of customer and inventory information seamlessly. After processing in CoreIMS™ corresponding order information may be exported to Sage 50 via CoreIMS™ Bill of Lading and Receipt data.

Accounting Bridge (CoreAB) is the CoreIMS™ QuickBooks® integration module. It allows the synchronization and adjustment of inventory between QuickBooks® and CoreIMS™ as well as the import of customer lists, purchase orders and sales orders. After processing in CoreIMS™ corresponding orders are exported to QuickBooks® as invoices, bills, and credit memos. ** Does not support Advance Inventory Module.

Worldship Integration Module (CoreWS) interfaces with UPS WorldShip® to allow transmission of packaging information such as shipping address, package dimensions, and weight directly from CoreIMS™ to UPS WorldShip®. In return shipping information such as shipping charges and tracking numbers are returned from WorldShip® to CoreIMS™ for subsequent use.

Front End Module (CoreFE) makes a selected set of CoreIMS™ operations available to outside users via a web interface. This gives selected personnel and users the ability to view inventory and orders and select a variety of reports to view in real time. Given the appropriate set of permissions, these users may also post shipping and receiving orders for subsequent processing in CoreIMS™.

CoreMapping module (CoreMAP) allows for spreadsheet data exchange with the CoreIMS™ database. Inventory and order information may be imported and exported to/from Microsoft® Excel. This is especially convenient for initializing operations with inventory and orders and also conveying pertinent information to interested parties within an organization.

Auto Allocation module (CoreAA) enables shipping orders to be allocated without manual intervention by a user. This allows for faster throughput of shipping orders whenever this feature is desirable.

Billing module (Core3PL) is available for 3rd party logistics companies. It’s an automatic charge and billing module made available with CoreIMS™ Enterprise Edition. Customer contracts may be defined and charges accumulated accorded to selected criteria. These criteria include by weight, storage space, order count, order line count, handled quantities, etc. Additionally charges may be added manually as needed. Associated reports include customer invoices and warehouse revenue breakdowns.

Electronic Data Interchange (CoreEDI) provides for integration with existing EDI platforms.  Shipping, receiving, and transfer orders are automatically ingested and acknowledgments returned as the related orders are processed. Extensive configuration options are available so that EDI operations may be readily coordinated with your preferred EDI provider.

Application Programming Interface (CoreAPI)  is for customers interested in customizing CoreIMS™ to meet specific organizational needs. The CoreIMS™ Application Programming Interface can be made available for use in conjunction with the Microsoft® .NET software framework available separately from Microsoft®.
