Marketwire, September 27, 2010
Shipwire Debuts First Order Management Service Fully Integrated with Global Outsourced Order Fulfillment Service. Shipwire Anywhere™ Gives Online Sellers Instant Web-based Order Management and Shipping Automation Software at No Cost
TECHCRUNCH DISRUPT, SAN FRANCISCO and PALO ALTO, Calif.—September 27, 2010 —Shipwire, the leader in ecommerce fulfillment, today introduced Shipwire Anywhere™, the industry’s first web-based order management software service seamlessly integrated with a global order fulfillment warehouse service. Now growing online sellers can effortlessly manage their orders and inventory regardless of where goods are stored. With one Shipwire account, users can manage orders, gain insight into their inventory and design their own global fulfillment network. Shipwire is showcasing the new software September 27-29 at TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco.
Shipwire Anywhere is designed to give any online seller with a small warehouse, brick-and-mortar storefront, office, or even a home garage, the shipping muscle and order processes of a Shipwire 3PL warehouse. With an array of features and functionality not found elsewhere in the industry, Shipwire Anywhere is the ideal web-delivered software solution for e-tailers, looking to automate and grow sales, while delivering an unparalleled shipping experience to buyers.
Shipwire Anywhere features:
- Shipwire order automation and management wherever goods are stored.
- E-commerce automation with 50+ popular integrations, like Shopify, Magento, PayPal, eBay and Amazon.
- Intelligent order routing sends orders to the right facility, based on cost and time estimates.
- Shipping rate optimization ensures the lowest delivery cost, and optimal delivery time.
- One dashboard for all order activity regardless of where goods ship from.
- Instant insight into inventory levels across all inventory locations.
- Efficient batch shipping label printing, and packing list generation for popular shipping carriers such as UPS, FedEx and USPS.
- Shipwire network infrastructure, web-delivered software with up-time guarantees.
Shipwire Anywhere is a free web-based solution that provides features comparable to spending thousands of dollars on a costly implementation of order management, inventory management, label printing and shipping software. Shipwire Anywhere has no monthly fees, contracts, commitments or minimums. Postage printing costs do apply. Shipwire Anywhere works with over 50 top shopping carts and marketplaces, such as eBay, PayPal and Amazon, to automate shipping processes for buyers and sellers. When paired with the Shipwire global warehouse network, SMBs get worldwide market reach on-demand.
“I”ve been using Shipwire outsourced warehouses in three countries for over three years, and was a beta tester for Shipwire Anywhere for one of my build-to-order products that I was still making changes to before sending a production run to Shipwire outsourced warehouses,” said Andrew Simmons, CEO of Thoughtfishmedia.com. “Shipwire Anywhere allowed me to use my existing online store and marketplace connections with Shipwire, and automatically route just the build-to-order product orders to my production facility in Seattle. Shipping rates are displayed to buyers, orders are queued for review, and printing and order confirmations are automated. I just pick, pack and ship, while Shipwire manages the rest of my business,” he said. “Other order management software I priced would have been thousands of dollars for less functionality, and been a pain to integrate with my store and outsourced warehouse. Shipwire allows me to grow my business without growing my employees, and it has been worth every penny.”
“Shipwire Anywhere allows sellers to benefit from the massive investment in fulfillment software and processes that we use to manage our own global warehouse network,” stated Damon Schechter, CEO and founder of Shipwire. “By offering our award-winning software for free, any online seller can automate shipping, reduce shipping costs, and benefit from over 50 e-commerce tool integrations. Shipwire helps online sellers deliver a great buyer experience without impacting their budget. When they consider outsourcing some or all of their storage and shipping, our global warehouse network is just a click away.”
