ProShip® SDK Overview

Customizing ILS Behavior

ProShip® Input Logic Server (ILS) is a Web API/TCP Socket interface that resides on the ProShip® Server. ProShip® ILS contains a Visual Basic .NET execution environment, allowing for custom business rules to be executed on the ProShip® Server.

The key to the power of ILS is the ability to deeply customize its behavior through integration API. Implementing the appropriate business logic and ILS will compile the code and invoke it when the appropriate events are generated.

It’s extremely fast and dependable. The SDK is also so flexible that if I can dream up a process improvement, ProShip® will make it happen.
