BrokerForce™ includes an automated order export feature that can send orders to your company in a common file format. Fixed width (columnar) is the most commonly requested format and comma separated value (CSV) format is also available with the header information included in the first row.
If you have your own preferred format for importing orders electronically, please send us a sample with a list of fields, data types/lengths, and transport method e.g. FTP or e-mail. Almost all formats and parameters can be accommodated.
Our experts at BrokerForce™ will assist you with how to automate the importing and validation of orders to prevent unwanted variances. Pending that your company will export price lists and import orders from BrokerForce™, we will offer your reps a discount on their purchase of BrokerForce™. Many inventory distribution systems such as MAS 90, have integration tools for importing and exporting this information. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
How it is sent- The resulting file may be e-mailed, sent on disk, or made available for upload to your FTP web site. If the file is sent directly from BrokerForce™ via e-mail, the subject line will be "Orders" plus the date and time of the export, and the rep group's name. The body of the message will contain the name of the rep who exported the order along with any special instructions.
Orders Fixed Width Layout
The following table describes the columnar layout of the Orders.txt file that includes Bill To information and is exported from BrokerForce™. This is a flat file, and all header information is repeated on every row. All details are grouped together by OrderID, the agency's unique order identifier.
Note: Your customer number (VendorCustNo) will be empty for a new customer
and you should specify if new customers or orders without your vendor customer
number are to be included.
