Integrate with Custom Shipping Solutions

Getting products to customers and fulfilling orders on time is essential for keeping your business running smoothly. 

Unfortunately, your shipping platform doesn’t always communicate effectively with your other business platforms, resulting in siloed information, data entry problems, slow updates and shipping times, and a system prone to errors from manual data entry. Shipping integration services from DocInfusion can help you keep your system and processes on track. 

Our custom, white glove integration service makes it easy to keep all your shipping integrations up to date and allows seamless communication between your different platforms. Integrate your finance, CRM, e-commerce platforms, and more to get a full picture of your business systems and keep your shipping services on track. Spend less time entering information manually, and more time managing your business.

What Are Shipping Integrations?

Today’s customers want fast deliveries, quick updates, and a seamless customer experience. With such high customer expectations, it can be hard for companies to comply if their retail supply chain has errors or inefficiencies, data entry errors, or siloed data. Many vendors face this situation regularly by using a separate fulfillment process from their shipping platform with no integration services. 

Using separate fulfillment and shipping platforms requires vendors to switch back and forth between platforms to complete orders and provide updates when customers place an order. This time-consuming process can result in a poor overall customer experience with delayed shipping times, late tracking updates, or inaccurate tracking numbers due to manual entry errors. 

Shipping integrations allow for seamless communication between your fulfillment and shipping platforms and other software such as ERP, CRM, finance platforms, and more. Shipping integration takes the hassle out of fulfillment and shipping and can even lower customer shipping rates by removing the vendor invoicing step.

Why Should I Integrate My Shipping Platform?

Without integration, information from your shipping platform remains siloed from your fulfillment and other software platforms, meaning you must use manual entry to exchange data. This often results in manual data entry errors and is incredibly time-consuming and expensive. Keeping your information siloed in separate systems also makes it difficult to scale your business effectively. Integration reduces errors and saves you time and money, which allows you to scale your business effectively and quickly. 

Additional benefits include:

  • Reduced Errors: Integration eliminates the need for manual entry, reducing entry errors.
  • Greater Efficiency: Automated services allow you to quickly update retailers and customers. 
  • Reduced Expenses: Fewer errors and reduced markup costs save your business money in the long run. 
  • Increased Customer Satisfaction: Integration allows customers to get faster shipping and order updates. It also allows them to automatically check the status of their order without the need to call your team, saving time for you and your customer. 
  • Better Reporting: When you have up-to-date data it’s easier to provide up-to-date analytics and know where your business is at any given time. 

With integration, your time will be better spent expanding your business rather than fulfilling every step of the order process. Going back and forth from platform to platform is time-consuming and takes away from your bandwidth to scale and grow your business.
