Fully Integrated Shipping Solution

ShipIT is a shipping solution that integrates your AccountMate to UPS, FedEx and USPS – passing out the customer ship-to address and, optionally, the customer shipper account number; receiving back the shipping price, cost and tracking number; and printing carrier approved labels.

Available in both “Lite” and “Pro” versions, here’s details of what each provides:

Both

  • Interface to UPS, FedEx and USPS (via ShipRush Discount Postage Account)
  • Pull customer ship-to address from the AccountMate Sales Order or Customer Invoice (but not RMA) and pass to the shipper
  • Write the carrier tracking number back into AccountMate in the “remarks” section of the shipping document
  • Can integrate with a client-supplied USB scanner to pull actual weight, including packaging, for accurate freight cost
  • Write the carrier freight cost back into AccountMate – including the ability to up-charge that amount according to user-defined formulas
  • Print carrier-approved shipping labels
  • Calculate and include Package Insurance Value
  • Support 3rd party and consignee billing
  • Support e-mail notification of shipment to your customer
  • Support desktop, Terminal Server, Citrix, and WAN connections

Lite

  • Runs as an external application to AccountMate
  • Doesn’t integrate with ACCU-DART or MKT Credit Card
  • Doesn’t support cartonization (assigning line items to specific boxes of a multi-package shipment)

Pro

  • Is tightly integrated to the AccountMate user screens – specifically <Ship Sales Order> and <Create Invoice> (requires source code for the AR & SO modules, or special license from AccountMate
  • Optionally integrates with ACCU-DART and MKT Credit Card
  • Supports cartonization (assigning line items to specific boxes of a multi-package shipment)
  • Optionally totals the weight of the line items, as defined in AccountMate <Inventory Maintenance>, as the weight of the order


A question that often comes up is: How is this better than the FREE UPS/WorldShip, FedEx and USPS applications?

Here’s what ShipIT brings to to the table those don’t:

  • Single interface to all three carriers – so simple and consistent processes
  • No need to maintain addresses in multiple systems – all address info is pulled from AccountMate
  • Automatically writes the carrier tracking number back into AccountMate – so no copy/paste (or forget to do that)
  • Automatically writes the carrier freight cost back into AccountMate – including the ability to up-charge that amount according to user-defined formulas

AKA Consulting has provided shipping solutions for AccountMate for over 15 years and complete details, including pricing, are available here.
