Hands Free Shipping Increases Profits for Companies Shipping with a Multi-Carrier Shipping System
12/15/2011

Companies with needs for hands-free shipping software can ship automatically with a feature with a multi-carrier shipping system by Harvey Software.

Online PR News – 15-December-2011 – – Harvey Software, Inc., released information today describing The Automator®, the hands-free shipment processing feature included in its Computerized Parcel System (CPS™) shipping software. Whether shipping one package at a time or a group of packages, the Automator allows a business to ship without any operator required at the shipping computer. Even though it is a hands-off operation, the CPS Automator continues to select the best shipping method for each package by rate shopping between all of the major U.S. carriers according to what the user wants. A company can rest assured knowing that they are getting the best rates possible for each individual package.

“We first developed with the Automator as a security feature, believe it or not. A client wanted to be able to keep the shipping information from being edited by employees to insure 100% accuracy and security. Originally, this was applied with the computer itself locked in a closet with the employees having access only to the completed shipping labels and packages,” said Bob Sansone, Director of Sales at Harvey Software, Inc. “A great side effect of the method we came up with for that particular customer’s security needs was the ability to ship an entire batch of packages with no person necessary at the shipping computer. We saw the potential for this feature for our other customers, and The Automator became a standard feature of CPS shipping software contained in every CPS license we sell,” continued Mr. Sansone.

“It’s easy to see how this could save lots of time in the shipping department. CPS is quick even when shipping information has to be entered manually, but between ODBC integration and automatic rate shopping made possible with the unique to CPS RateBots® and Smart RateBots® features, it’s possible that a person is necessary at the computer only to press enter several times. We took away those slowdown factors and let the software go at full speed,” explained Mr. Sansone. “Basically, the speed at which a printer is capable of printing becomes the only limitation to how fast the packages can be processed and ready to be picked up by the carriers. We know that many companies are interested in this type of shipping automation. Ultimately, a company can increase their profits with a feature like this by increasing productivity and guaranteeing accuracy,” concluded Mr. Sansone.
