Auburn Hills, Mich.—July 11, 2012—Cloud enterprise resource planning (ERP) software provider Plex Systems Inc. deployed Pacejet Logistics Inc.'s multi-carrier shipping and logistics technology at Vornado Air.
The Pacejet shipping solution enables the airflow technology product manufacturer to fully integrate with FedEx and UPS (and, soon USPS) in real-time for the shipment of products to major retailers and direct to consumers.
“Generating labels and managing the entire shipping process was becoming a time-consuming bottleneck that threatened our ability to grow the business,” said Patti Burns, Vice President, Accounting and Controls, Vornado Air. “The integration of the Pacejet solution with Plex Online provides a seamless and easy-to-use solution that eliminated a significant challenge in our shipping process.”
The integrated solution provides shipping options with rate quotes; sets up a shipment pickup with the selected carrier; prints the carrier-specific shipping label; and records the tracking number without the user leaving the Plex Online ERP application. This allows Vornado to efficiently manage shipments of all sizes to customers from its production facility. The solution enables the shipping department to save from 10 to 15 percent on freight costs, reduce costly returns and improve cash flow by directly billing third parties for shipping costs.
“The Pacejet multi-carrier shipping technology provides an elegant solution to Plex Online users seeking simple and efficient options,” said Patrick Fetterman, Vice President, Plex Systems. “It’s no longer necessary to research each carrier to find the best price, download proprietary software and print individual labels. As Vornado has shown, simplifying the shipping process allows them to save time and money and keep their focus on manufacturing the best air flow products on the market.”
