To connect EWarehousing, you will have to, first, create a Fulfillment Channel connection, and then, set up the connection parameters.

Once the connection has been established between the system and techOMS, you will be able to push Sales Orders, pull inventory levels and shipments, send and get receipts, get stock updates and synchronize inventory.


The process consists in two phases:

1) Create the channel

2) Configure additional parameters


NOTE: Make sure that you are operating at the right Vendor/Warehouse beforehand.
