BPA Platform Delivers Integration for Stream Logistics and Transport Management Software
Stream partners with Codeless Platforms for business process automation
"We got introduced to Codeless Platforms through one of its BPA Platform resellers. The organisation approached us about 18 months ago about connecting Stream with SAP Business One, which it had done using BPA Platform. I therefore wanted to understand a little bit more about what BPA Platform was all about and how it worked, especially as we've had inquiries about integration for all sorts of different platforms, including NetSuite, Microsoft Dynamics etc.," explained Paul Rufus, Marketing Director, Stream.
As well as integrating Stream transport management software with existing business systems, Codeless Platforms' Stream connector can automate numerous business processes including uploading customer details and delivery addresses, as well as product data included in an order. In addition, customer tracking references and links that are produced in Stream are made available against an order and can be updated in business systems.
"Integration and automation is an enabler between our platform and other software. It makes it sticky and helps remove data silos, making sure that everything is in real time and correct. BPA Platform enables that integration. It has made it quick and simple to set up," said Paul Rufus.
"Organisations are using BPA Platform to automate the creation of orders in Stream from an ERP system, or whichever back-office system they've got in place. This includes information such as what we're delivering, when we're delivering it, who to, what products, etc. Once that information is in Stream we can then do our route optimisation, load planning, order notifications, barcode scanning, etc, and then BPA Platform can push those updates back into the relevant ERP or business system. We've received some very good feedback from our customers."
The partnership with Codeless Platforms and the addition of BPA Platform to its product offering is enabling Stream to broaden its reach and generate new opportunities.
"The implementation of Stream is a relatively quick process. However, with some of the smaller and larger opportunities alike, the integration process can sometimes be the only sticking point. However, by using something llike BPA Platform (https://www.codelessplatforms.com/
