VISUAL Parcel Manifest from Lilly Software Automates Shipping and Improves Order Tracking
30 April 2002, Hampton, NH (USA) —Lilly Software Associates continues to extend its end-to-end enterprise solution with the release of VISUAL Parcel Manifest™. This new application enables companies to enhance their shipping operations by easily creating carton classifications for UPS shipping, generating tracking numbers, printing labels, delivering electronic manifests to UPS, and tracking orders online. It integrates with the VISUAL Enterprise™ solution, helping companies streamline processes with immediate access to accurate, real-time order shipment information.
VISUAL Parcel Manifest provides a single system from which companies can manage parcel shipment and tracking. Easy-to-use features provide users with the tools to create and select classifications and produce packing lists. Using the Order Management and Shipping Entry windows in VISUAL Enterprise, companies can quickly enter customer orders, add carrier IDs, and calculate weight and freight costs. VISUAL Parcel Manifest integrates with Loftware® systems for label printing and with UPS for manifesting shipments and tracking them through the UPS Web site.
"VISUAL Parcel Manifest automates shipping processes and helps our users respond to customer service calls with information that extends beyond the four walls of the plant," explains Scott Rich, Vice President, Marketing, Lilly Software Associates. "By using the UPS Tracking site, companies can verify carrier information online and access up-to-date shipment and summary data. They can immediately view the delivery status of an order, date of delivery, and confirm who signed for the shipment. Access to current data results in less confusion about orders, which benefits both our users and their customers."
VISUAL Parcel Manifest will be available from Lilly Software in May 2002.
