Streamline and Automate eCommerce Fulfillment: Clients First Announces Partnership with ShipStation

By Ryan Howe

With an estimated 38% of customers refusing to do repeat business with an online retailer following a bad experience with delivery – it’s no secret that the key to your company’s success in eCommerce rides on your ability to fulfill orders. 

You need an order fulfillment strategy.  

That is why Clients First has partnered with ShipStation – to meet the demands of the modern eCommerce market by bringing you a total business solution with SAP Business One that provides your core financial and operational management with automated, integrated shipping in one place. 

As the top shipping software for online retailers, ShipStation automates the imports and order management across all of your online selling channels with all of your shipping carriers. ShipStation allows you to deliver your product faster, eliminate shipping errors, save money, and focus on growing your business, improving your bottom line, and earning loyal customers.  

With ShipStation, you can: 

  • Import orders from your website, Amazon, eBay, Etsy, Walmart, Shopify, and over 100 other marketplaces, stores, and shopping carts.  
  • Automatically create shipping labels and batch print with over 30 carriers, both domestic and international.  
  • Check and compare rates and delivery estimates in real-time across all carriers and automatically select the best one for each shipment.  
  • Leverage heavily negotiated shipping rates, the same reserved for Fortune 500 companies, thanks to the high volume of ShipStation transactions. 
  • Create presets, rules, and requirements that expedite the shipping process through automated workflows. 
  • Elevate and promote your brand through customer interactions with shipping notifications, package tracking, and customized labels.  
  • Never skip a beat with a full-featured mobile app to manage shipments, get reports, and communicate with customers from any phone or tablet, anywhere.  
  • Give your customers a self-service order tracking portal that answers questions before they get to you, eases buying anxiety, and improves your ratings.  
  • Make decisions that strengthen and grow your business with shipping analytics and reports for operations, customer engagement, sales trends, customer behavior, and product inventory recommendations. 

At Clients First, we believe that the most successful technology solutions come from a combination of tried, true, and tested applications working together to solve everyday challenges and optimize processes so you can make room for growth. A ‘best of breed’ approach, if you will, that blends the greatest technology and the top talent to deliver success, every time.  

Our partnership with ShipStation allows us to fulfill our promise to bring the best approach to every engagement. Contact us for a personalized demo of SAP Business One and ShipStation to see how flexible business management and automated order fulfillment in one place can help you grow your business, evolve your efficiency, and outpace your competition.
