Connecting Sage with your courier booking

SONY DSCCardiff-based Pelican Healthcare has implemented an integrated web-based solution from NetDespatch that seamlessly connects the company’s Sage order management system with their local APC Overnight Depot – Western Couriers.

Pelican Healthcare delivers a large quantity of daily shipments of medical devices to the NHS, doctors’ surgeries and chemists, as well as other medical suppliers that offer a one-stop-shop. The consignments are delivered throughout the UK via Western Couriers, part of APC Overnight; the UK’s largest next-day delivery network.

What’s interesting here isn’t the product being supplied, it’s the ability to connect Sage order management directly with a courier. Not everyone who sells online uses multichannel management software and it’s not always easy to find a website or marketplace integration you need for your courier.

NetDespatch is retained by postal and parcel carriers to provide cost-free shipping solutions for their customers, through an easy to use secure web-based platform that automates the connection between order processing, despatch and delivery, even if the orders are received in one location and despatched from another. There are no costs to the retailer for installation, training or support, and the system is available instantly online.

If you’re interested in linking couriers to Sage (or practically any solution on the market), give NetDespatch a call and see what they can do for you.
