The right shipping system should do more than create shipping labels. The right shipping system should save costs, reduce errors, and build opportunity.
Time is one of your company’s most valuable assets. Fast, efficient shipping means more product can be shipped per hour, for better customer service, and reduced operational costs. Most often, operational costs are saved by reducing the number of physical steps that are involved in your daily routine. For example, if you are printing invoices or packing slips from one system, and then re-entering the shipping information to create labels, you have too many steps. This can limit growth, lead to exaggerated operational costs, or both.
Automate Physical Tasks with the Right Shipping System
By Automating many of the physical steps involved in your daily shipping routine, your business will save money, expedite fulfillment, and reduce errors. Big business, relying on efficient fulfillment, consolidates their processes by producing a single, complete, shipping document for fulfillment. These are Remington, PC Mall, L.L. Bean, and UPS to name a few.
However large or small your company, the principles are the same, an all-in-one shipping label and packing slip will reduce operational costs. They are a proven means of eliminating errors, as shipping documents no longer need to be sorted and matched, to deliver new opportunities. The time saved by large businesses will enable them to move more product for less money, and build a new capacity for growth. While smaller businesses with fewer resources, can spend less time packing boxes, to devote more time to marketing and growing their business.
Shipping systems can deliver all levels of automation to help your business grow. From automatically collecting order data, to forms generation, to conveyors systems and beyond. Identifying where your shipping efforts are going today, will help you pick the right shipping system.
