Three Easy Ways To Get Work Data Into Strategic Movements
In many cases, an application that is hard to use won't be used at all.
Excess complexity is one of the primary reasons that an attempt to introduce automation
into a workplace process fails.
Getting the right data from a business application into a scheduling and dispatching
application in a simple, easy to use, and repeatable fashion is critical as the
first step in the process to achieve overall logisitcs process efficiency.
There are three processes to load job data into Strategic Movements.
Almost every business application provides a method for exporting data to
an external file so that it can be processed by another application.
Strategic Movements supports the following file formats for data uploads:
XLSX - Standard Microsoft Excel native format spreadsheets.
Each job to be scheduled is taken from one row in the spreadseet with data
taken from specific spreadsheet columns.
CSV - Comma Separated Variable text files. These can be produced by a spreadhseet or
business application. Like the XLSX file, each row contains the data for one job to be scheduled.
XML - Extensible Markup Language text file. These can be produced by business applications
with the data for each job being contained in multiple record identified by tags and values.
The tag names are completely configurable in Strategic Movements to minimize the effort
in creating the file within the business application.
applications and are completely configurable within Strategic Movements.
If you need a way to take a file written from an existing application and have it automatically uploaded to
Strategic Movements with no additional steps performed by the user,
you can use the Strategic Movements Upload Robot.
After installing the robot, it does the following:
Identify files from by an application when they are created in a specified folder.
Read them and use the Process Automation Interface to send the data to Strategic Movements.
Move the files to another folder to show that they have been processed.
