ShipWorks Version 5 Advanced Label Processing and Order Import

ShipWorks simplies your shipping process. It is the leading enterprise shipping software for the warehouses. It recently launched Version 5 of its software. The version 5 provides faster multi-carrier shipping label processing and improved order import feature.

With nearly 160% rise in the order processing and expanded capability to print up to 1,00,000 shipping labels from multiple carriers on a single print order, ShipWorks Version 5 provides fulfillment centers and warehouses the ability to further streamline their order fulfillment funnel.

Now the company’s focus is on enterprise-level shipping process. ShipWorks has extended its order import capacity to connect to practically any inventory database source including Warehouse Management Systems (WMS), Order Management Systems (OMS), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software and ODBC connections.

Once orders are imported into ShipWorks, clients can compare prices across multiple shipping carriers including UPS, FedEx, the U.S. Postal Service, DHL as well as many regional shipping in the U.S. and Canada. Automation can also be applied such as adding parcel insurance for orders over a specific value, holding orders for address validation or routing tasks to specific workstations or destinations.


After the printing and shipping of label, ShipWorks will communicate parcel tracking information directly back to the customer’s database source. “Fast and efficient order processing is central to everything we do at ShipWorks,” said ShipWorks Co-Founder and General Manager Wes Clayton. “Version 5’s faster order processing will help warehouses and fulfillment centers keep up with demand and increase output as retail e-commerce sales continue to grow at unprecedented levels.”
