After a successful first year visit to Scaling New Heights in 2012, V-Technologies will return for a second year showcasing our shipping software products that integrate with QuickBooks Pro, Premier and Enterprise. We are excited to present ShipGear again, and also will be presenting our latest software pairings – StarShip for QuickBooks Enterprise and StarShip for Fishbowl! Scaling New Heights will be held June 23-26, 2013 at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, FL. Scaling New Heights is a QuickBooks training and education conference for QuickBooks Pro Advisors. Over 1000 advisors are expected to attend this year.
ShipGear reduces double entry and invoicing errors by providing a connection between UPS and FedEx carrier software to QuickBooks. This connection brides the gap between shipping and the front office to automate the shipping process and improve customer service. ShipGear has been available since 2001, and has thousands of customers using it on a daily basis to efficiently ship their product.
StarShip is the latest V-Technologies offering for QuickBooks Enterprise and Fishbowl users. StarShip also automates the shipping process but supports multiple parcel and freight carriers inside one user interface. This all in one approach allows the user to rate shop between carriers to get the best rate. Line-item integration increases efficiency to create international and BOL documentation. Custom emails can also be used to notify customers of tracking information, keeping inbound inquiries down.
Come check out both shipping software offerings while at Scaling New Heights in Orlando at booth #19. Maybe you’ll even run into Mickey and his friends!
Just because Sage has changed Peachtree's brand name to Sage 50 doesn't mean it has lost its peach appeal. In fact it has several enhancements to shipping automation. Just like Peachtree 2012, Sage 50 2013 still supports the SDK (software development kit) provided by Sage. In addition, V-Technologies, LLC has enhanced the Sage 50 ShipGear shipping software interface as follows:
- Sage 50 no longer needs to be running to process shipments
- Sage 50 user permissions are no longer needed to access ShipGear shipping software and the data access password for processing shipments is no longer required.
- The ShipGear shipping software Sage 50 interface allows for sales orders that have been invoiced to be updated with freight and/or tracking information.
- The new ShipGear shipping software interface has the ability to update back orders with freight and/or tracking.
Say goodbye to Peachtree, and say hello to Sage 50 shipping software. Its just as Peachy as before with even a bit more. ShipGear customers also qualify for the UPS Customer Technology Program. Customers with a valid CTP approval code can use their CTP subsidy towards the purchase of ShipGear or add on modules. Learn more...
StarShip by V-Technologies, LLC is the mother ship of all shipping software. Alternatively, ShipGear by V-Technologies, LLC may be all you need. The purpose of this blog entry is to compare the two.
Sage 100 ERP customers have relied on StarShip by V-Technologies, LLC as their premier Sage shipping software solution for over 10 years. ShipGear is an alternative shipping software by V-Technologies available to those customers seeking a more affordable economical solution. Since StarShip has been endorsed and sold by Sage Software for so many years, it isn't surprising ShipGear is the lesser known of the two solutions.
ShipGear is considered more of an entry level shipping solution compared to StarShip. The ShipGear interface allows customers to install a plug and play shipping software solution between Sage 100 ERP and UPS WorldShip or FedEx Ship Manager. When a customer requires a higher level of automation between Sage 100 ERP and multiple carriers StarShip makes more sense.
ShipGear shipping software is also considered an entry level solution because it retrieves header information only. Other differences to consider when looking at StarShip vs. ShipGear:
- StarShip can retrieve the order and create the invoice as a result of the shipment, where ShipGear retrieves and updates the same document. Use ShipGear to ship an order and ShipGear will update the order with freight and tracking information. Ship against an invoice and ShipGear will update the invoice. ShipGear shipping software will not create an invoice as a result of the shipment like StarShip shipping software will.
- ShipGear allows you to work within the separate carrier applications, with StarShip you may work with multiple carriers from one user interface.
- ShipGear is available thru the UPS Customer Technology Program (CTP) and FedEx Tech Awards allowing customers to subsidize the license cost.
