WorkTrace Connector for SalesforcePress Release August 2012
WorkTrace, a leading provider of Logistics Management SaaS (Software As A Service) /cloud solutions for Postal and Logistics operators, announced that it has developed a connector for the Salesforce platform. The native Force.com application allows Salesforce users to prepare shipments, postal/documentation and shipment posting labels, using Salesforce address and order data. The shipment data is sent electronically to the appropriate Postal operator as pre-advice. The app is scheduled for release in November 2012.
The Salesforce-WorkTrace integration means added-value logistics such as supply-chain visibility, batch tracking, alerts on delivery delays and much more, are now available from within Salesforce.
The solution makes it easy for businesses to send mail shipments and to follow-through on their successful completion. Easy-to-use data-entry screens give greater efficiency and reduces error. Follow-up of a shipment is made easy with logistics intelligence such as automated alerts on missed delivery targets. Users can gain significant operational efficiencies by using this application with much faster time-to-ship and radically improved shipment tracking. For Postal/Logistics operators one obvious benefit is that it makes it easier for customers to do business with you and that can only be good news.
Opening of e-logistics to customers is easy in this way as the service is pure web-based and requires no development or up-front investment by the Postal operator. Postal Operators also benefit from operational efficiencies from electronic pre-advice.
