Fishbowl has UPS shipping features built right into its interface. This allows you to instantly send shipment notices to UPS for pickup, compare shipping prices, print labels, and email packing lists to customers without having to leave Fishbowl and open a separate Web browser.
This is a fantastic integration that saves time and makes the order fulfillment process easier in a number of ways:
- Fishbowl automatically informs UPS when a shipment is ready for pickup. This speeds up the delivery process and makes it much easier, especially when you handle a high volume of shipments.
- With UPS features in the Fishbowl interface, you can compare shipping options, prices, and estimated delivery times so you can make an informed decision on whether to choose next day, air, or ground delivery.
- You can print packing lists and UPS shipping labels for orders without having to leave Fishbowl.
- It’s easy to automatically email packing lists and tracking information from Fishbowl and UPS to your customers. This keeps them informed and happy because they can see how soon they can expect their shipments.
