Shipworks, a largely US focused solution, has launched a series of robust product enhancements, including the launch of The Works. Shipworks The Works is a single piece shipping workflow designed to simplify warehouse shipping, especially for warehouses shipping large volumes enabling multiple carrier labels to be printed at a single workstation.
Shipworks The Works
Shipworks The Works is designed for the warehouse employee, with a simplified user interface for processing labels for a single piece shipping workflow. Today, most warehouses have individual stations for FedEx, UPS, and USPS. Warehouse workers must prep the packages to get it to the correct station for the operator to weigh and print that carrier’s label. Now, with The Works, there is no need for multiple stations. All carriers exist in a single solution at a single station. A one-time scan tells the system what label to print, and in less than a second, the box is waiting for the carrier.
The Works is an efficient way to combine all decision-making attributes onto one screen that manipulates the fields as required, allowing warehouse workers to avoid unnecessary mouse and keyboard activity.
There is a new Product Catalogue to enable customers to import and manage the entire list of SKUs they are shipping with ShipWorks. This import can include all necessary information for each SKU, such as, weights, dimensions, location in warehouse, etc. For international shipments it allows customers to automatically populate customs information rather than having to key in the data.
A new facility for importing Custom Fields with added support for New Fields allows customers to include more order-level item data in ShipWorks so they can create rules and workflows around an item to streamline the shipping process. The largest benefit of this advancement is allowing customers to enhance their reporting capabilities. Customers can start generating reports on new custom fields to get data around what’s important to their business.
“Warehouse shipping continues to evolve in line with FBA and other new, innovative fulfilment options. We have been working closely with our customers to make sure ShipWorks keeps them competitive in this rapidly changing industry. We’ve enhanced our software for performance optimization that will result in processing labels faster, and we’re particularly excited about the launch of The Works.”
