Key enhancements of Clippership 12.7 include:

Quick Connect – Supporting single or batch shipments, this new utility allows for a rapid integration of a powerful shipping engine to other host applications. By simply entering a reference to a single package or to an entire batch, Clippership can be preset to auto-record the package(s) eliminating manual intervention by the shipper. Compliant labels are produced by the software, tracking numbers, shipping charges and other relevant data regarding the shipment(s) is returned in the same format it was retrieved allowing the host system to update Accounts Receivable, Customer Support, Sales Orders, Inventory or Warehouse Management systems, and any other host application that Clippership may be communicating with.

Quick Configure – This new wizard is menu driven reducing integration time of major U.S. carriers such as UPS and FedEx by hours. Field Engineers will also have access to the base code, so the inclusion of custom business rules or process flows can be done in real-time.
