What are UI, SSP and API?

The process of recording a claim varies slightly depending on which method you choose to use. However, all three methods follow the same basic pattern as shown in the diagram below.

 

User Interface (UI)

The User Interface (UI) is an online claim form accessed via the “Record Claims” tab under “Purchases” or “Sales”. On this page you are presented with a series of boxes to complete with information regarding the transaction you wish to record. As you populate the form, you will be given drop down options that correspond to your supplier’s certificate.

 

Spreadsheet Processor (SSP)

The Spreadsheet Processor (SSP) involves downloading a spreadsheet from the OCP into which you can enter multiple claims. You can then either upload or email the spreadsheet to the OCP. The details will be checked against your suppliers’ certificate information.  When uploading the spreadsheet, if anything has been entered incorrectly, you will be emailed back a new spreadsheet containing only the claims that were found to have errors.  When emailing your spreadsheet to your OCP account, if anything has been entered incorrectly, you will be notified of the errors via a new spreadsheet containing only the claims that were found to have errors.

 

Application Programming Interface (API)

The API (Application Programming Interface) provides a means for you to connect your existing systems directly to the OCP.
