What our customers say about us
Shipping Solutions has been the best thing to happen to our exporting program. We are able to store unique customer data in a uniform way. No more trying to remember how to fill out every carrier's forms. No more entering and reentering information into multiple locations. Enter it once and be done. The restricted party screening is a great tool. One click and you're done. Shipping Solutions has saved us time, money and aggravation. I would recommend Shipping Solutions to anyone who exports.
Carol L. Wilson
We are a small, but rapidly expanding company. Without Shipping Solutions Professional, we'd be lost in a sea of export orders. It helps us process and track our orders so quickly and efficiently, we don't want to be without it! Before we tried to do it all by hand, which cost us a lot of time and errors. Thanks for creating such an essential product!
Diamon - Fusion International
Shipping Solutions is an excellent software package especially for the smaller exporter. The software is user friendly and easily adapted to individual company requirements. The online User Guide is easy to use with step-by-step illustrations of each screen. The Annual Maintenance Program provides users with the latest updates as they become available. The Customer Service Support Team is very responsive in addressing any technical questions.
We purchased your Shipping Solutions and are extremely happy with its capabilities. It's fast and easy to use.
