When it comes to your distribution processes, you may work with DHL, UPS, FEDEX, TNT, PostNL, Royal Mail, Schenker, to name just a few. Or you might prefer a smaller, specialized, or local one, or a combination thereof. But no matter your carrier, the main problem is usually the same: they all have their own booking system and interface.
What’s more, is that they also tend to have their own labeling and notification system. And if you’ve already integrated one of these interfaces into your ERP system, you probably put a lot of work into updating that connection.
For companies who want to get rid of the hassle of carrier interfaces or switch from manually keying in transport orders to an integrated setup, we’ve developed ShipIT 365.
ShipIT 365 knows about all carrier interfaces and it’s completely integrated into Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. All it takes is a single click to select what to ship, and book & print a label.
Looking for the Microsoft Dynamics NAV version of ShipIT 365? Please click here.
Whether you use single sales orders or warehouse shipments, a single click takes you to ShipIT 365. You can also select your preferred carrier or browse through rates and delivery times. As soon as your transport order is ready, just click ‘Book & Print’ to have it shipped.
From this point, ShipIT 365 takes over and all you have to do is to put the label on the box. The carrier will do what they always did: pick up and deliver your packages. Track & trace links and status updates will be automatically updated in your ERP system.
We developed ShipIT 365 together with our partner nShift. nShift is the result of a merger between Consignor, Unifaun, Transsmart and the acquisition of Stockholm-based returns management solution, Returnado. With this combination, nShift becomes the Global Leader in Cloud Delivery Management Solutions. nShift focuses on streamlining communications between carriers and ERP systems. They know about hundreds of carriers’ interfaces and provide one single endpoint to work within Business Central. This makes switching between carriers or adding new ones, very easy.
Whit both Commerce 365 and ShipIT 365 installed, you can use nShift data to enrich the Magento checkout process. Depending on the delivery location, this covers shipment methods and costs. You can also offer pick up points, even when working with multiple carriers or your own store locations.
You can install and configure ShipIT very quickly and it has a low impact on your Dynamics ERP system.
