ShipStation teams up with SAP
E-commerce shipping specialist ShipStation is collaborating with SAP to broaden its services for small and medium-sized businesses.
The US e-commerce software company, owned by Stamps.com, has teamed up with the German software giant to support e-commerce sellers via the integration of SAP’s enterprise resource planning (ERP) software.
The following SAP capabilities will be available to SMEs on the ShipStation platform -- allowing them to integrate core e-commerce processes, make accurate and insightful decisions based on real-time information, and improve customer experience:
- Pre-packaged e-commerce solutions from a shared network of SAP and ShipStation resellers
- A full ERP suite designed for Small and Midsize Enterprises - Accounting, Banking & Financials / Inventory, Production & Distribution / Purchasing & Operations / Sales, Service, & Support / Asset Maintenance & Management / Analytics & Reporting
- SAP’s partner ecosystem of certified Consultants, Integrators, Resellers, and Add-on publishers
With more than 300 global partnerships with leading shopping carts, marketplaces, carriers, and fulfillment services, including FedEx, USPS, UPS, Amazon, Shopify and BigCommerce, the multi-channel and multi-carrier platform claims to offer the most integrations of any e-commerce solution.
“With today’s rapidly evolving retail landscape, it’s critical for businesses to have a comprehensive view and understanding of all assets and processes now more than ever,” said Russell Griffin, Vice President, Global Solutions Provider Partnerships at ShipStation.
SAP, as the global ERP leader, provides proven growth platforms for businesses of all sizes. SMEs will now reap the benefits of a centralized system of record for managing enterprise assets and processes, including external vendors, partners, and e-commerce apps in addition to marketplaces, inventory, payments, and shipping carriers -- enabling them to further scale their business and delight their customers.
“The flexibility of ShipStation’s platform and the real-time process integration offered by SAP Business One allow SMEs to orchestrate all aspects of their business, enabling efficiency, profitable growth, and improved customer experience. Now, SMEs can reduce the cost and time required to make their businesses run better,” said Steve Tait, Head of SAP Business One in North America.
