Eliminate Duplicate Data Entry by Using eBay UPS Shipping Software by ShipGear
Many companies sell products on eBay and ship their products via UPS WorldShip®. Using UPS WorldShip® alone without an interface to eBay shipment information takes time and can result in errors due to duplicate data-entry. ShipGear shipping software solves this problem by running in the background behind UPS WorldShip® and providing direct access to eBay transactions through the UPS WorldShip® interface, eliminating the need to re-key information from eBay to UPS WorldShip®.
Are you running integrated shipping software with your ERP system?
If your shipping process is manual or disconnected from your ERP system chances are you are having to re-key information from one system to another. StarShip shipping software integrates with your ERP system eliminating redundant data entry so you can spend your valuable time more productively.
