At the heart of the TOPS system is the fundamental ability to talk to any other system and exchange information as required through EDI links with customers, suppliers, ports and warehouses, and data capture from in-cab and handheld systems. TOPS interfaces seamlessly with a variety of optional postcode and routing and/or mapping components together with linking to the Microsoft Office suite including Outlook and Excel.
