Partnering to Deliver Legal Compliancy! ERP Integrated Solutions has partnered with MK Data Services to provide a “Denied Parties Screening” solution that is both efficient and cost-effective. ShipDPS™ has been written to function seamlessly (native integration) within SAP. Web Service calls are used to access MK Data Services to check the various certified Denied Party Listings in real-time. This unique interface provides the capability to determine a denied party at Sales Order creation in SAP. This prevents the wasted process, labor and time to check further downstream in your logistics flow and then only to stop the shipment. If there is a long lead time from Sales Order to physical shipment then a secondary screening can be done at Delivery Order creation. The ShipDPS™ solution will execute a “Delivery Block” for a shipment to any receiving party that matches to the “Denied Party Lists”. The screening process is done against all identified parties/entities to the shipment and any related subsidiary and parent companies that are affiliated. A detailed reason for the denial is also indicated as part of the review against these listings. MK Data Services constantly reviews and updates their listings from the certified sources so our customers can be confident they are in compliance with this law.

The ShipERP shipping solution is written completely in SAP ABAP. Core to its technology is the use of web services within SAP to directly communicate and transact business with the major carriers that support this technology. By following Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) methodology it enables the ShipERP application to integrate seamlessly with carriers and provide real-time processing of shipments and tracking.
If a carrier does not support a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) the ShipERP product can also utilize XML via HTTP POST or EDI processing to communicate with the carriers. Other options for integration include tracking number generation using carrier algorithms or pre-generated tracking numbers loaded into ShipERP. Whatever is the method of integration ShipERP can support it.
ShipERP’s design and use of SOA within SAP has been thoroughly reviewed and tested by the SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) and given the certification of “SAP Certified ABAP Add-On and Powered by Netweaver”. This certification guarantees that ShipERP conforms to SAP’s rigorous integration requirements and that this “built-in” solution will provide stability and technical efficiency. As part of the certification process, ShipERP is given its own namespace. This means that ShipERP has a unique, non-customer specific transaction which distinguishes the product form other SAP transactions and customer specific transactions. The ShipERP Multi-Carrier Shipping Solution namespace and unique transaction is /ERPIS/SHIPERP. This provides structure and organization during an upgrade by preventing the product from being stepped on. Using the unique namespace not only prevents naming conflicts, but it also prevents unauthorized modification of distributed objects that were built in the unique namespace. A unique namespace is reserved with SAP against your SAP installation number. It is not transferrable, and can only be registered and used on that specific installation of SAP. The namespace also comes with development and a repair license keys. Only the owner of the unique namespace development license key can develop objects in their unique namespace. Recipients of products that were built in the unique namespace cannot modify or repair the delivered objects without receiving the repair license key from the namespace owner.
Being a certified SAP solution, ShipERP is delivered to customer systems as a package which is imported via the SAP SAINT transaction. This makes ShipERP support packages easy to implement and consistent with SAP’s support methodology. Scalability as well as accurate change management is achieved through this process. Internal Basis teams can support this functionality which in turn empowers the customer’s staff and contributes to the bottom-line cost reductions.
