International shipping software specialist SmartFreight has partnered with OSSM Cloud Solutions, the Dublin-based Oracle NetSuite solution provider, to launch its new SmartFreight NetSuite Connector, an integrated freight management solution designed for businesses using multiple carriers for their shipping needs.
The SmartFreight NetSuite Connector integrates all options into one easy-to-use portal, eliminating the need to access multiple carrier systems. Once a shipment has been processed, the consignment number, carrier details and price for that shipment are automatically sent back to Oracle NetSuite, giving businesses all the information they need to deal with customer service queries.
The platform automatically selects the optimal shipping choice based on parameters set by the customer such as best price, service time or lowest carbon footprint. As the entire shipping process is managed through Oracle NetSuite, it also eliminates the need to educate staff on multiple systems, reducing training costs and enhancing the efficiency of sales and dispatch of orders.
“With continuing market uncertainty, both indigenous companies and global corporations must look to markets beyond the UK to Brexit-proof their business. This partnership creates new opportunities for businesses, enabling them to lower their shipping costs and easily manage the process from a single software platform.” said Gavin Warwick, Ireland Partnership Manager at SmartFreight. “E-commerce continues to grow exponentially and the SmartFreight NetSuite Connector provides businesses in this industry, as well as manufactures and distribution companies of all sizes, with a truly global shipping solution.”
“This partnership is mutually beneficial for both OSSM and SmartFreight, while at the same time creating an innovative solution for every business in Ireland and the UK seeking to optimise their sales and delivery systems,” said Ray Ryan, CEO of OSSM Cloud Solutions. “A centralised platform for shipping, that integrates seamlessly with existing ERP software, removes what has been a huge headache for businesses. We’re predicting strong demand for this service which will build upon our own recent growth and extend our reach to new markets.”
