ShipStation is one of the most preferred “one-size fits all” shipment solution for multichannel retailers. As they have multiple points of engagement for selling, merchants can sell products not only in a single store like Magento store, but also in other stores like Amazon, eBay, and other channels easily. With ShipStation, a merchant just need a single account to manage all the logistics requirements like pick, pack, print labels, ship, etc. The tracking details also get automatically updated to the channels in realtime. Being a cloud based solution, it is getting a better attraction too as a solution for the problem of multicarrier package processing.
Though ShipStation is a delivery solution, it can reduce the operational headache of the delivery manager who does not need to login to each channel to manage their individual delivery. However, to manage the other business processes such as procurement, inventory, accounts, planning and forecasting, etc. a business often requires an ERP Solution.
ShipStation users are mostly Mid and Large Enterprises, and they deal with large volume of orders on daily basis across channels, so their best fitment can be SAP Business One HANA as their ERP solution. SAP Business One HANA has proven advantageous for existing as well as new customers for additional speed and performance along with functionalities that is only possible in a high performance environments.
