EL SEGUNDO, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 16, 2012) - G4S International Logistics debuted its new e-commerce platform providing jewelers and manufacturers with increased speed and efficiencies that make creating and managing outgoing and incoming shipments faster and more cost-effective than ever before.
The new platform is best-in-class, with all consumer touch points, from data entry to user interface to tracking, re-designed to ensure the most efficient shipping and returns user experience possible.
"As an industry leader for forward-thinking technology options, we are continuously looking for ways to improve our shipping experience. We know that our users want to spend more time with their customers, which means spending less time managing the shipping process," says Gregg McPherson, president of G4S International Logistics. "Our new e-commerce platform gives them time back in the day, all while saving them money."
With the new platform, users are able to control inbound shipping costs by setting service limits both by shipping provider and by manufacturer. Manufacturers and wholesalers also now can login to an embedded link that takes them directly to the shipping creation page -- removing the need to share account numbers, and thus eliminating the potential for mis-use or accidental re-use of a customer's account number for a shipment going to a destination other than the customer's.
A simplified return process enables consumers to login with an RMA#, enter their credit card information to pay for their return and then print out a return label, all without the customer having to touch the return prior to it arriving back in the warehouse.
Customers also have greater visibility into their shipping activity right from the welcome page. Quick ship capabilities enable customers to ship right from their welcome page dashboard. Users also can track their last five shipments and see their top five shipping destinations.
