ProShip to Offer Flexible Server Management Tool: The Parcel Config App

The new add-on app will offer ProShip customers a convenient way to configure and maintain their servers

ProShip is excited to announce the official release of their new Parcel Config App to existing and prospective customers. As the needs of ProShip customers evolve and progress, ProShip is committed to offering tools and solutions that can scale with them and help them become more self-sufficient in managing the complexities of parcel and LTL shipping. The Parcel Config App is an add-on to the ProShip shipping solution that allows customers to remotely configure and maintain their ProShip server from a simple, browser-based app without the help of IT resources.

Benefits of the Parcel Config App

The Parcel Config app is browser-based and comprised of a user-friendly interface that allows for the completion of tasks that were once only possible on a remote desktop session. Operations and logistics teams can easily manage the configuration internally, without using transportation budget or valuable IT hours.

Within the Parcel Config App, customers can gain access to a long list of maintenance tasks including but not limited to:

  • Configuring and altering new and existing shipper locations
  • Changing rate shop groups in real-time by adding and removing carrier services as needed
  • Adding, removing, and altering scheduled jobs (Manifest automation, batch routines, etc.)

Many ProShip customers take advantage of Advanced Date Shopping, a tool that uses advanced technology to increase flexibility and delivery options for shoppers during checkout by working backwards from the promised delivery date to choose a carrier and service that fits within your required cost. [Learn more about Rate Shopping.] The Parcel Config App would allow you to easily manage the best way groups and carrier services to best utilize this proven strategy that leads to a more positive Customer Experience (CX).

The possibilities of maintenance tasks and configuration benefits you can do with the Parcel Config App are constantly growing. This does not even take into account the internal team management benefits from utilizing non-technical resources to complete common tasks and allowing your logistics team members to focus on other issues at hand. Not only can the Parcel Config App provide access to a ProShip server to complete these tasks, but your internal team can also expedite the support process when needed by easily downloading Log Files for troubleshooting current issues.

“ProShip is thrilled to introduce this customer-centric parcel configuration tool as a complement to our best-in-class shipping platform. The Parcel Config App is part of ProShip's larger strategy to enable customers to securely self-serve where appropriate,” says Justin Cramer, Co-Founder at ProShip. “Adding this app to ProShip’s already robust multi-carrier shipping software will lead to more flexibility, additional efficiencies and quicker reaction times for our customers, allowing them to gain an extra advantage on shippers not using a ProShip solution.”
