SIP/Cash Application Multi-shipment auto reversals Hedging / Risk management reporting and integration with Hedge Manager Automation of multi-material transfers New application to address remaining 8344 functionality Recreation of the Hand Held Inspection system using cell communications
The purpose of this application is to provide a semi-automated process for entering receiving weights and cash receipts for a CRES client who sells to another CRES client. It requires that the Supplier Information Portal application is available and set up on the receiving locations CRES system. There is also some initial coordination required between the supplier and customer. The design goal of this enhancement is to provide these capabilities without the need to implement and maintain a direct electronic interface between the supplier and customer.
Once set up, the receiving scale operator will be prompted to enter a cross reference number supplied by the driver for all truck shipments. Typically this could be the origin ticket number, or perhaps a simplified generated by the supplier to make it easy to convey and the operator to enter. Rail shipments do not require this cross reference as the rail car number would serve as the key to match the receiving record to the origin record.
