Sending Orders to Eaton

OASIS can send orders to Eaton directly through Flash under the following circumstances:

  • The order must be fully released. Hold orders will have to be created through Flash through their current process.
  • The order must be a new order.  Currently, OASIS has no ability to send change orders to Eaton.  Orders will have to manually changed in both systems. 

OASIS Sends the following General Tab Information to Flash

  • Manufacturer
  • Customer
  • PO Number
  • Stamp- These appear as notes.
  • Lot net billing check box
  • End user PO- This is the Contractor's PO number for the contractor first program
  • Freight Account- Third party freight account.  See the "Third party Shipping" helpsheet
  • Don't Ship Before date-
  • Required on Site date-
  • MFG Quote- This is the RFQ number.  Please note this number needs to come from the quote.  OASIS must have the RFQ number as well as the line numbers associated with each part to successfully transmit an order that contains RFQ pricing. 
  • Account number:  This is the customers account number with Eaton.  Users will not be able to send an order successfully without an account number.

  • Commission-- We DO NOT send commission.  Flash will calculate the commission once the order has been transmitted. In the instance where the commission calculation in OASIS differs from Flash OASIS will notify the user and ask if they wish to keep the commission that was sent or whether they want to update the commission inside of the OASIS order to match what is in Flash.

OASIS sends the following Address Information to Flash:

  • Shipping Address information-  If the user types in the job site or any other address, that address will transfer to Flash.  If the address in the distributor's shipping address in OASIS is used, we do not transmit the address.  Flash will use the address assigned to that distributor in Flash.  If there is any discrepancy between the address entered in your OASIS installation and the one on file in Flash.  The entry in Flash will need to be updated.  
  • Note on country code: If shipping to a Canadian address, please use the Flash country code of CA, not CAN. 
  • Alternate Shipping Address and Reason-  The Alternate address will transfer to the Eaton specific dialog box and then to Flash.  The reason to use the alternate address will appear in the notes. 
  • Markings- These will appear in SAP, the truck and the bill of lading. 
  • Call Ahead-  OASIS has one field and Flash has two.  OASIS will split the text portion of that field into the name field in Flash.  The numerical portion of the entry will go into phone number field in Flash
