Kewill Upgrades Clippership With Enhanced Reporting and Performance Management

New Features Provide Opportunities for Regional Carriers With Dual-Carrier Label for LSO and OnTrac

CHELMSFORD, MA--(Marketwired - October 07, 2013) - Kewill, a leading provider of multimodal transportation and logistics management solutions for seamless supply chain execution, today announced Clippership 15.8, which will provide customers with enhanced reporting and performance management capability.

Customers today are challenged by the weekly carrier invoice process as invoices are difficult to manage due to a variety of factors, including disparity among carriers and file formats. With the new functionality, Clippership 15.8 customers can now consolidate all carrier invoices, reduce billing complexity and more easily analyze shipping costs.

"Tying Kewill Billing and Reporting to Clippership is a game changer," said Kewill's Director of Channels Eric Braswell. "The enhancements to the solution give Clippership customers the ability to compare their Clippership shipment transactions to the actual amount invoiced by the carrier. This level of reporting and performance management delivers what our customers need to stay competitive in today's market."

As Kewill continues to extend and promote regional carriers through its parcel program, Clippership 15.8 will now support a dual-carrier label. This new dual carrier label is work share service between LSO (formerly Lone Star Overnight) and Ontrac and is included as part of the LSO Plus service. The new dual carrier label helps facilitate the movement of parcels between their two networks. The dual-carrier label provide unprecedented opportunities for regional carriers, enabling them to hand packages off to each other and bar code scan them into their native systems to facilitate deliveries to customers which have traditionally been outside their delivery area network. This new dual-bar carrier-compliant label gives LSO a much larger footprint and makes it far more competitive than ever before.

Clippership 15.8 will be available as part of the Transportation solution of the recently-launched Kewill MOVE™ platform for multimodal transportation and logistics management, which enables customers to gain a holistic view of the logistics network with end-to-end visibility across the most critical supply chain execution processes.

New features in Clippership 15.8 include:

  • Kewill Billing and Reporting plus Shipping Performance and Expense Management - Provides unprecedented reporting and visibility into Parcel and LTL spend
  • Improved FTP functionality for ease of use
  • FedEx International Economy®: Canada, Intra-Canada shipping - Enables shipping throughout Canada with FedEx® intra-Canada
  • Reduced Carbon Emissions - Enables customers to balance emissions produced by transportation of shipments by leveraging UPS® Carbon Neutral labels
  • Enhanced LSO services - Allows customers to take advantage of the latest LSO shipping services with LSO Plus, LSO simple, LSO HIPPA and LSO 2nd Day

Availability

Clippership 15.8 will be generally available in Q4 2013. Clippership is available through the Kewill Value Added Reseller Network. For pricing and other information, contact your Kewill representative.
