Shipping UPS, Enhanced Shipping Management Increases Productivity in Stream V Business Accounting Software

One of the bigger distribution nightmares, whether a brick and mortar distributor or at an electronic distributor, is tracking the shipments 'after' they leave the warehouse or fulfillment house. Cove's Stream V Business Accounting Software UPS Host Manifesting System eliminates the worry.
Flexibility is the Key to Automated Processing
  • Multiple physical warehouses can be maintained from a single, centralized data location.
    • Multiple shipping/manifesting lines can be utilized in the warehouse.
    • All lines can be on a single manifest
    • Individual lines can be on their own manifest
  • Automated scales can be configured to interface with the system so that, as boxes roll down the rolling stock, they pass over the scale that transmits the box weight directly into the manifest. No more problems with incorrect weights on the billing audits.
  • The use of this one module can result in reduced manpower needs. This module can free up at least one man from the shipping point of your warehouse and put him back in the picking lines where he is needed.
  • Automatically produced manifests mean less errors and more shipping profit.
UPS Host Manifest Upload Seamlessly Integrated
Host Manifest Upload (HMU) is a new UPS required vehicle to transmit UPS Package Level Detail from Stream VT to the UPS Host System via the Internet. Using secured communications protocols to ensure that the data can be viewed only by UPS, a formatted ASCII file from each shipping location is uploaded to UPS on a daily basis.
  • Benefits of the Host Manifest Upload system are:
  • Tracking on a shipment or package level.
  • Electronically issued call tags.
  • Need to print a detailed manifest for the UPS driver is eliminated.
  • Manual data entry process at UPS is removed.
  • UPS billing accuracy is increased.
Automated Manifesting and Tracking
One of the bigger distribution nightmares, whether in a brick and mortar distributor or at an electronic distributor, is tracking the shipments "after" they leave the warehouse or fulfillment house. Cove's Stream V UPS Host Manifesting System eliminates the worry.
Where is my Shipment and When Will it Be Here?
With the Stream V UPS module installed, tracking is simply an on-screen lookup away. Drill down technology allows you to see the tracking number for the shipment, and another level shows you the box records for the shipment. A simple keystroke will lead you to the UPS on-line tracking information.
Increased Customer Service
Imagine, from the desktop, being able to tell the customer, 'John just signed for the box on your dock', or, 'The shipment is leaving New Orleans now.' This kind of customer service, without the customer having to strike out on their own to find out what the progress of a shipment is, is second to none.
With the UPS module installed, freight audits are simple and intuitive. Stream V's ability to compare actual freight costs to billed costs lets you track the profitability and costs for freight to the penny. Finally, you can know for sure what impact the cost of freight is having on your business.
