AEB will cease maintenance and support for transport service provider modules (TSP modules) for ASSIST4 Dispatch on March 31, 2022. AEB recommends checking whether a Bartender release change is still necessary and requests that you schedule the migration to the follow-up solution Carrier Connect. Read service news.
Carrier Connect is the cloud-based integration of your transport service providers (e.g. label printing, EDI, and loading list).
Carrier Connect does not require Bartender software, includes services for routing data, service areas, installation of service packages, current security standards, and licenses for label printing software.
You can freely select your transport service providers (according to the latest system description) and switch between them flexibly.
Transport service provider modules from ASSIST4 Dispatch will be actively maintained by AEB until March 31, 2021. After that, these software components will be passively maintained and supported for another year.
Official support of provider Seagull Scientific for Bartender version 10.1 will end on November 9, 2019.
A change to the subsequent Bartender version 2016 is not mandatory from AEB’s side, as long as you do not change anything in the currently used system environment.
If you plan to migrate your operating system to Windows 10 or Windows Server 2016 (supported by Bartender 2016 only), you will need to migrate from Bartender 10.1 to 2016.
Update required? Arrange a consultation on the Bartender update to version 2016 by Mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since this is a new system and the label & EDI formats can have a more recent status, for example, this is a new carrier connection from the project’s point of view.
The project itself consists of the following phases:
Would you like to migrate?
For the migration to AEB’s new Carrier Connect software product, we propose to schedule a joint change project. At the beginning, we clarify with you the general conditions and whether any previous customer-specific adaptations from ASSIST4 need to be taken into account. This is the basis for the service quotation for the migration.
Even before the project we need some data and values to get an overview of your current system installation.
Please contact AEB so that we can read this data from your system and plan the changeover:
