There are three simple ways for your business to access the great functionality of vinDELIVER. Whether you're going to be managing one hundred loads or one hundred thousand loads, we have provided you with the simplest and quickest ways to connect.
You can create individual loads manually via our web portal, upload a spreadsheet containing thousand of loads, or connect to your existing transport management software using out simple to use API.
API - Connect using our REST API to automate driver dispatch
Using our simple API connector you can send and receive captured data using your existing software.
|1||Set up your application to create and manage loads using our simple API.|
|2||Electronic data captured during pickup and delivery.|
|3||Access and share electronic data with key staff and customers.|
STEP ONE - Integrate with our open API
Setup your app to create and manage deliveries using our simple API. The simplest point to integrate with vinDELIVER is at the point of printing the driver's manifest. Once your planners have built the driver's loads, the API sends out the manifest to your driver instead of printing it out.
STEP TWO - Collect ePoD information
Collect information on your driver's device - information collected and statuses will be automatically sent back to our servers.
STEP THREE - Receive new information
Make the new information available to your planners, operational staff, accountant, management team and customers.
How do I connect to the API?
vinDELIVER provides a fully functional REST API. See the "Developers" section of this site for more information.
Is there a limit to the number of vehicles I can load via the API?
You can load as many vehicles as you like into the system as long as you have enough credit.
What information is available to me via The API?
The API makes all collected information available. If the receiving system cannot handle the data then it can be stored and retrieved via the API using vinDELIVER.
Can I export data out of the system?
We make all data collected available to you so that you can export data into your systems for billing, auditing, updating etc.
Can customers input data for me?
You can give your customers direct access to the system to allow them to input data and view collected data.
Is the data stored and backed up?
All data is stored and backed up in a highly secure hosting facility. No customer or user has direct access to the data or databases. vinDELIVER is hosted at www.rackspace.com, a world leader in cloud and managed hosting services.
Can I manually create loads?
Loads can be manually created using the 'Create Job' tool in the web portal.
